About Us

  • Who we are

    Tompkins Financial Advisors is a wealth management firm that offers a full suite of services. We take tremendous pride in our comprehensive approach to serving our clients’ best interests, a key factor in our 95+% client retention rate.

  • What we do

    We work toward protecting your family's financial health for generations. No matter where you are, our team can help get you on the path to where you want to go. We specialize in our client relationships and strategies that yield lasting results.

  • How we do it

    Our holistic approach to financial guidance starts with establishing a personal relationship. Once we understand your values and goals, we’ll tailor our recommendations so you can pursue your dreams.

  • What makes us different?

    We believe in common sense investing, which combines “Right Kind, Right Reason” diversification with an effective risk management. We match each client's financial resources with their financial liabilities and goals, rather than simply trying to generate maximum investment return.

    Our asset management services are available based on a stated fee schedule, ensuring you and your wealth advisor are focused on the same goal: to protect the long-term performance of your investment portfolio.

  • Our investment philosophy

    We are a wealth management firm that focuses on providing customized investment solutions to meet the goals of our clients. We understand that each of our clients has a unique set of financial needs and objectives. In order to best serve the interests of our clients, we provide a diverse selection of investment portfolios that can be used individually, or combined strategically, to accomplish our clients’ financial goals. Rather than being restricted by a singular investment strategy, we prefer to allow the client’s specific situation to dictate the type of investment portfolio utilized. A diverse set of client goals necessitates a robust set of investment solutions. To that effect, our portfolio offerings are designed to provide a wide spectrum of approaches. This affords us the ability to provide both active and passively managed investment strategies.

    We take pride in acting as an independent and unbiased financial advisor to our clients. It is our practice to always take a team approach when it comes to disciplined and prudent investing. Our investment committee, composed of nine members, is tasked with the responsibility of closely monitoring our portfolios and making all investment decisions. As a group, the committee relies upon decades of collective experience in the financial markets and financial service industry. Although we are forward looking in our approach to meeting our clients’ financial needs, our investment committee still adheres to time tested investment principles that focus on comprehensive fundamental research and technical analysis. Keeping our clients’ best interest in mind is always our first priority. As a firm, we endeavor to achieve cost effective, consistent, risk-adjusted returns for our clients during any and all economic climates and business cycles.
