Why Choose Granite Harbor Advisors?

The GHA Difference

Our “Four Uniques” are what make up the GHA Difference. By consistently delivering on all four of these components, our clients receive the world-class service, experience, and expertise they have come to expect from the team at Granite Harbor.

A Firm, Not Just an Individual

Many, if not most of the planning solutions we help our clients with are designed to last a lifetime. One of the biggest problems clients face in our industry is continuity of service for the long-term. When an advisor changes firms or leaves the business, there is often a significant gap in continuity to the planning for the family. We have solved that problem by creating a robust business continuity plan and by offering our clients access to the entire firm’s expertise, not just an individual advisor.

Access to Public and Private Market Investments Together

We offer unique access to the public and private markets, in both the investment and insurance space, setting us apart from other firms. At Granite Harbor, we believe in a coordinated effort between these areas to achieve better financial synergy, rather than approaching them separately.

Sophisticated Solutions for Life Insurance and Estate Planning

We provide unparalleled insurance and estate planning solutions for successful individuals and families. Our bespoke and discreet approach allows us to customize solutions for complex financial situations that separates us from our competitors in the industry.

Our Core Values are Apparent to All Who Encounter Us

Everything we do from providing fiduciary advice to hiring new employees is guided by our core values of A.B.C.D.E.

Helping Families Live Their Best Lives

By Delivering:

More Time

Our clients recognize their most precious asset is time. We provide them the freedom to spend it where desired instead of managing tedious financial matters.

More Time

Less Stress

It is nearly impossible to separate emotions from your finances. Fear and anxiety about the future can be crippling. By developing a comprehensive plan, and maintaining discipline, we alleviate that stress our clients feel about the unknown.

Less Stress

Better Family Harmony

The number one cause for splintered family relationships after a death is money. It’s also a top three perennial reason listed for divorce in America. We are committed to helping families maintain harmony by addressing potential issues in advance.

Better Family Harmony

Multi-Generational Financial Security

It requires no planning to leave an inheritance. You simply have to pass away owning something. Leaving a legacy involves much more than passing down assets. With a collaborative approach, we help families create financial security built to last many generations.

Comprehensive Financial Planning

A good offense and a solid defense is only as good as the game plan being taken onto the field. The same goes with financial planning. Wealth accumulation and asset protection strategies are most efficient when coordinated with a comprehensive plan. At Granite Harbor, we serve as fiduciaries for our clients to create, implement, and maintain a robust plan through our Compass360 Process.

Every dollar invested has a goal. Whether it is used to buy a new home, pay for college, fund retirement, or leave to the next generation, each dollar our clients choose to invest has a purpose. At Granite Harbor Advisors, we articulate that purpose and create a logical, efficient, evidence-based portfolio.

Understanding Life Settlement: Recognizing the market value of your life insurance

Many people think of life insurance in rather uninspired terms. They generally consider it a liability and an expense that shows up in cash flow projections, not a true asset.
