The Red Pine mission is to empower investors to be wise decision-makers and happy goal-achievers. We find that most people know little about investing and don't achieve their financial goals.

Our principal has over 22 years of experience as an investor and adviser. We are a valuable partner because we understand investing best practices. Red Pine Investment Counsel is fee-basis only, so we're incentivized to create lasting value for our clients.

The Red Pine is the state tree of Minnesota. It is a long-lived, resilient tree that does well in windy & harsh environments.

It represents the qualities we seek in ourselves & in the investments we choose. It guides us to have the mindset to take advantage of the volatility in the financial markets & the wisdom to make good decisions in partnership with our clients.

We are committed to:

  • Excellence and integrity in everything we do.
  • Exceptional results over the long term.
  • Service to others as the best way to serve ourselves.
