Over 20 years ago, while working for a large Wall Street investment firm, Michael W. Boone began envisioning a new kind of Wealth Management firm - one without the conflicts of interest that come from investment banking departments and sales quotas. A place where non-commissioned financial planning and investment management would be the centerpiece of the services, and individuals would be the only clients served - not large corporations or governments. An independent firm with the highest quality advisors, focused exclusively on helping clients toward their life goals and dreams. MWBoone & Associates, LLC is that firm.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality financial advice and investment management, with integrity and superior ongoing service to our clients. We believe that if we are successful in adding value to our clients' lives in this way, our business will continue to thrive. More importantly, we will have done the right thing.
Why our clients choose MWBoone and Associates as their financial advisor
Since many of the corporate scandals of recent years have brought to light deep conflicts of interest in large public corporations, more smart individuals are looking elsewhere for private unbiased advice. We are not owned by a bank, a brokerage firm, or insurance company but are completely independent and management owned. Individuals like you are our only clients. We have no investment banking department and no self-produced products to conflict with our client's best interests, and yet we work with the largest financial service companies in the world. Independence means access to "Best of Breed" financial services.

He has licenses with various states in life, health, disability and long term care insurance and as a Registered Investment Advisor associate.

We have over 50 years combined experience in helping individuals, families, and small businesses plan for their financial needs. We have lived many "financial lives" with our clients, and that experience is priceless in a financial arena dominated by investors and advisors who have never seen a recession or a "bear" market.
Integrity is difficult to define and impossible to measure, but easy to recognize. And it is invaluable in an advisor. We can point to our willingness to submit ourselves to extensive professional oversight and clean regulatory records as evidence of our integrity. But we measure our integrity in the quality of our long-term relationships with our clients and the respect of other professionals in our industry. Our mission is to care about our clients’ goals as if they were our own. We are a small family business partnered with some of the biggest and strongest financial service companies in the industry. We believe that with us you get the best of both worlds: financial strength and individualized, personal attention. MWBoone & Associates offers the antithesis of the cold mega-merged financial service companies building long-term relationships with our clients.
We are fortunate that we have enjoyed many client relationships that have lasted over 20 years. We have a very low turnover of our clientele and our client satisfaction is the greatest single indicator we have that we are succeeding in our mission.
