Arthur Stein Financial, LLC (ASF) is a Registered Investment Advisor, which means that the firm is a "fiduciary" when dealing with clients. Our obligation is to put the client's interest first. For instance, we cannot choose one investment over another because it would be more profitable for the firm. Doctors, lawyers and CPAs are fiduciaries. Your financial planner should meet the same high standard.
ASF is based in Bethesda, MD but services clients nationwide.
Interested Feds are invited to schedule a free Zoom call to discuss your current situation,
need for advice, how we can help you and compensation. You owe nothing if you decide not
to use our expertise.
