Why Sand Hill

In a community as unique and vibrant as Silicon Valley, you don’t want an average financial advisor. You want someone who understands your situation, your story, your life. You want someone who looks at every approach before choosing the best one for you—and who’s not afraid to try something new. You want someone who can engage the global perspective in the local context, and merge the best of both to your benefit. Most of all, you want someone who will always take your call and who always has your back. That’s the Sand Hill difference.

What We Do

Every member of our team is passionate about the work we do—we’re not here to meet quotas or sell a product, we’re here to build relationships. We take a client-centered approach focused on helping you achieve your long- and short-term goals. We have experience in virtually everything life can throw at you, and we’re always here to help. We fulfill our fiduciary responsibility with the utmost integrity, accountability, and excellence every day. But most importantly we’re here with insights, perspective, and plans when you need us most.
