What our clients are saying

I find the entire staff consistently responsive. This is significant for me. Once I recognize I need information, it is helpful to receive that information quickly.

Tumwater allows us to enjoy our retirement.

Paul M.

You have been a valuable resource for others in our family. You have gained our trust and respect and this is very important at our stage in life!

Cherie and Jim C.

Tumwater has given me a place to have my money managed, to allow the money to work for us, thereby increasing in value every day. Tumwater invests the money into funds that grow, watches those funds to stay [diversified]. You hire a Financial Advisor to focus on increasing the value of your saved money. This allows you to focus on your own profession to succeed. The money invested then grows and is there for life’s big bills, college for youngsters, retirement, etc.

Paul M.

My first contact with Ben occurred when he was the Financial Advisor for my former employer… The first one-on-one meeting we held to discuss my financial future
was a total wakeup call (Yes, there were tears). He laid out an honest appraisal of my current financial situation and what I needed to do differently to move positively
toward a reasonably comfortable retirement. I took his sound advice to heart. Last year, I was unexpectedly laid off and that led to my decision to retire at the age of 70. I reached out to Ben and he immediately set up a time to talk about the best options for my 401K. A plan to roll the funds into an IRA was set in place and implemented by Ben and his co worker, Jackson. I am confident that Ben has my best interest at heart.
Communication is never an issue—I always know I will receive honest, appropriate guidance.

Patricia A.

We have 100% confidence that you know what you are doing which is so much more that most professionals who call themselves a financial advisor.

Kealy B.

Tumwater has helped to make us feel financially secure over the long run because of the sensible investment strategies Ben has employed for us.

Cherie and Jim C.

Tumwater has helped my family think about our financial future– but in a uniquely holistic way.
I really value being able to ask for Ben’s advice on any financial topic, be it immediately related to our investment planning or not.
Ben sees and understands how the big picture impacts the tactical decisions he helps you make.

Matthew M.

Tumwater has been a great resource for financial planning for my future and eventually my retirement. I’ve worked with Ben to find the right balance of investments that suit my long-term saving goals. I also have appreciated Ben’s help with other savings goals, whether it’s regarding an emergency savings fund, or saving for a specific purchase. He is always willing to answer my questions and explain the rationale behind investment moves. He also reviewed my 401(k) plan which was very helpful!

Brooke W.

I have complete trust in Tumwater, they alleviate a huge burden of stress in my life.

Jenni Y.

They have helped me feel safe with my financial future and provided me a valuable resource to come to with any questions about financial decisions and planning.

Jack C.

[I] sleep well at night knowing Ben and his team are taking care of our investments.

Avoiding the Most Common Mistakes in Bear Markets

When markets are volatile like they have been over the last month or two, there is a very natural, human tendency to “do something”.

Markets go down, we see the values in our accounts drop, and the natural instinct is to take some action to protect what we have.

Last week, the market gave us a great example of just how dangerous this can be. The S&P 500 was up 10.3% for the week – its best weekly gain since 2009. The Dow was up 12.8% – its best weekly gain since 1938! We sure wouldn’t have wanted to miss those!

History has consistently shown market timing to be the wrong move. In this video I talk about the dangers of trying to time markets, and just how unnecessary it is in the long run.
