Our Philosophy

Objective driven strategies are about the achievement of goals, and not only about the making of money. This implies a balance of risk with other factors such as tax advantaged thought, time, and the characteristics of products that may be most suitable for you and the application at hand. The goal is to accomplish the objective, while following the path of least resistance.

Keystone Financial Group Overview

Investment advisory and financial planning services of the Keystone Financial Group are provided by David R. Guttery, RFC, RFS, CAM.  Other professional services beyond the scope of Keystone Financial Group are available through a resource network of professionals. The resource network is comprised of independent professionals, each having a distinctive competency in their respective fields and firms. David routinely works with these, and other financial professionals with whom his clients may already have an established relationship. When no such relationships exist, clients are encouraged to make inquiries of multiple professionals that might provide a given service. Ultimately, that choice should be made by the client, as a function of competency, trust, and comfort.
