Maura C. Schauss CFP®

Managing Partner & Financial Advisor

As an independent financial advisor, my goal is to work with you to meet your investment and financial goals. As a fiduciary, I am held to the highest standard in our industry. I am required, regulated and proud to put my client interests first, ahead of my own. Whether you are seeking unbiased investment advice, want to make sure you are on track to have the option to retire, educate a child, or make sure you have the appropriate amount of insurance, I promise a new level of knowledge, detail, and commitment.

My specialties include portfolio design and implementation that also factor in the tax implications. I regularly coordinate with client’s accountants, estate planners, and other key professionals, when necessary, to seamlessly plan for and execute sophisticated financial strategies. 

Prior to founding our firm in 2011, I ran a Platinum Financial Services Practice with Ameriprise Financial for 12 years. It was during this time that I earned both my CPA and my Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designations.

I am a proud member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), AICPA, and Washington Women’s Financial Planning Study Group where I collaborate with members on the latest investment and planning trends.  I remain humbled and honored to be named three consecutive times, by my peers*, to Washingtonian's list of Best Financial Advisors in the DC area.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and love watching their various sports activities.
