Specialized Service & Independence:

In 1982, Carey Stansbury founded Informative Financial Services with a goal of becoming truly independent, thus eliminating the pressures of a parent company and their proprietary products.

As an independent wealth management firm with extensive resources, Informative Financial Services has the freedom to provide you with a wide variety of investment choices to best fit your specific needs.  We have the means to help you achieve your financial dreams through comprehensive wealth management, tax reduction strategies and established investment planning.

At Informative Financial Services we want to help you achieve your goals today and in the future through an educational approach and management of your resources.

People rely on doctors, mechanics, lawyers, etc. because they need expertise, and yet with their personal financial affairs, a lot of people take a "do-it-yourself" approach or may be relying on someone they don't fully trust to take care of their finances.  We want to help you by providing you with easily understood recommendations and specific instructions in implementing your unique financial plan. Contact our team today to take control of your financial future.

Are you prepared to address life's most significant financial issues?


We are prepared to help you.

Individual: Protect yourself.

Are your finances organized so that they maximize tax reductions, investment opportunities and provide adequate diversification* and risk reduction? Do you have adequate retirement income sources that cannot be outlived? Do you possess a Comprehensive Financial Plan? We can help you answer these questions, and prepare for a successful financial future.

We consider everything from Insurance to retirement, and are committed to creating a customized plan designed to take care of your short term goals and prepare for long term financial success.

*Diversification does not guarantee against market losses. It is a method used to help manage investment risk.
