Christopher L. Adajar
Christopher has almost 28 years of experience in the banking and financial services industry as a former employee for major banks and financial institutions. For the last 23 years, he has focused and specialized in investment management, financial planning, wealth, and risk management. With his financial planning process, he leads with a simple motto: “Prescription before diagnosis leads to malpractice.” Much like your health practitioner, Christopher prides himself on getting to know each of his prospective clients from a holistic “financial health” standpoint before working with them. While he feels that it is very important for prospective clients to thoroughly interview him, it’s also essential that he determines whether they can establish a good, communicative & long-term working relationship together. Christopher is passionate about his career and he feels that there is no greater honor and privilege that his clients trust him with their financial wealth. He strives to educate, inform, and empower his clients to make decisions to ensure their definition of financial success. He feels that he has earned his stripes as an all-weather Financial and Wealth Advisor, having helped his clients navigate through periods of uncertainty during the years 2000-2002 “Dot Com Bust”; and the 2007-2009 “Credit Crisis/Great Recession”. Over his lengthy career, he enjoys working with families and their generations. He graduated with a BS in Business and Management from The University of Redlands. He holds FINRA Series 7, 63, 65 securities registrations through LPL Financial as well as a California Insurance License (#0C49351). Christopher is also a five-time award recipient of the Five Star Wealth Manager Award first received in 2016, (as published in San Diego Magazine and The Wall Street Journal in the Wealth Management Section on March 28, 2016), and in years 2017, 2018, 2019 & more recently for 2021*; whose members represent less than 10% of the advisors in the San Diego area in 2021.
