Home | Wharf Financial


We are happy to announce that all Wharf Financial team members are fully vaccinated. Our offices are open, and once again we are meeting with clients face to face.

We leave the choice to you – whether we meet in person, or continue to chat via Zoom, we look forward to helping our clients, friends, and neighbors plan for their financial lives with sensitivity, intelligence, and thoughtfulness.



During these unprecedented times, many people are feeling anxious and uncertain.

At Wharf Financial, we’ve been helping to protect our clients, friends, and neighbors in the DMV for more than 20 years. We help them plan for the "Certainty of Uncertainty."

Ask yourself the following questions: 

  • Will I have enough money to retire and last me throughout my lifetime?
  • Should I change how my investments are allocated to protect me from a market downturn?
  • Are there ways to continue to obtain decent returns while limiting risk?
  • What is the most advantageous way to claim Social Security benefits?
  • How does Medicare work?
  • Is my estate plan in order? Should I establish a Trust?
  • Do I have an appropriate amount, or the proper type, of life insurance? Do I even need life insurance?
  • How can I reduce my taxes now, and throughout retirement?

Have you asked yourself these questions, and answered them confidently?



We are driven to ensuring that our friends, neighbors, and clients in the DMV have the resources, and knowledge, to feel optimistic about the future, even if it is uncertain.

And most importantly, as fiduciaries, we are obligated to offer advice and guidance that is tailored to your specific needs. We do not get paid commissions or sales charges. Rather, our success is tied to your success.

Learn about how we may be able to:

  • Help you work towards achieving your goals and desires
  • Protect your assets that you’ve worked so hard to accumulate
  • Plan for the "Certainty of Uncertainty"
  • Ease some of your anxiety
  • Help you plan for a smooth and successful retirement

Wharf Financial’s mission is to provide the opportunity, and the motivation, for our clients, neighbors, and all those in the DMV area to invest responsibly and with a purpose—and to feel confident about their retirement planning.

Our clients are active members of their communities, do good deeds, and make positive contributions to society. They insist that their investment choices reflect those same values.

There are many names for it, but values investing is a thoughtful and meaningful approach to investing that provides the opportunity for investors to contribute to, and even influence, positive social and environmental issues, without sacrificing financial returns.

Whether investing in companies that provide alternative energy, or those that have positive hiring practices; whether investing in companies working to feed or bring water to the neediest, or those that provide cutting-edge technology to underserved communities, there are unlimited opportunities to invest in companies that are striving to make the world a better place.

Most of our clients are hardworking government specialists, attorneys, program managers, tech gurus, teachers, lobbyists, and entrepreneurs. In other words, they are as diverse and interesting as DC itself.

Our clients tend to be progressive, curious, and interested in local sports and the arts. They are relationship rich and active in their communities. They enjoy fine dining and traveling. However, they are also concerned about retiring comfortably (and not running out of money), educating their children or grandchildren, and/or perhaps caring for an aging parent.
