Life rewards those
who stay curious
Curi Capital was founded on the idea true wealth means something different to all. Whether you’re a physician, an administrator, or a dreamer, everyone has their own goals in life. It could be spending time with loved ones. Or, being prepared for life’s unexpected twists. Whatever wealth means to you, it starts with a smarter way to diversify and grow your personal finances, so you can focus on life without worry.
Your financial goals are ours.
At Curi Capital, we know there’s a better way than the impersonal finance strategies of the past. Just like you want what’s best for your profession, your patients, and your family, we want what’s best for you and your finances. That’s why we’ve modeled our goals after yours. We stay curious—exploring new opportunities and innovative investment strategies to transform the investing experience for you. Our approach allows you to realize the true value of those invaluable moments.
- Achieving financial goals enriches life—beating an index does not.
- Discipline and an accountability partner are key to financial success.
- Minimizing taxes and fees doesn’t have to mean sacrificing returns.
- Private investments diversify and strengthen the modern portfolio.
- Uncertainty is the only certainty.
Curi has partnered with the medical community for more than 45 years. This partnership has given us insight and experience into the issues and circumstances unique to physicians’ lives—and we know every life tells a different story.
The core of our approach is developing a comprehensive financial life plan. We prioritize understanding you first—your goals and your concerns—in order to deliver a tailored solution that takes the best care of you. And while we get to know you, you get to know us. Over time, you see the value we add: enhanced quality of life, achievement of your goals, and true peace of mind.
Three ways to find your true wealth.
Comprehensive wealth advisory services designed to help you take control of your financial life and build a lasting legacy.
Retirement Plan Solutions
A holistic approach to retirement plan consulting and risk mitigation.
Private investment strategies not available to the retail investor—critical in today’s changing investment landscape.
Created to be better. Just for you.
It drives everything we do—from smart, innovative investment strategies to pushing boundaries for your best financial interest. It’s what enlightened us to be one of the first to offer malpractice insurance to protect doctors, and will continue to inspire us well into the future.
We got our start serving the physicians who own our parent company—a group we know well. This focus has enabled us to create tailored solutions and offer unsurpassed service for these investors and others in similar situations.
We put your interests first. We are a fee-only advisor and do not accept commissions or outside fees. This allows us to focus on your long-term goals, not one-off transactions.
Deep market knowledge and networks give us access to investment opportunities typically only available to institutional investors. Our high-level access and due diligence allows you to diversify with confidence.
Unlike most firms, our whole team—not a singular advisor—is centered around you and your family’s financial goals. Our model is simple: Make sure you’re heard, understood, and connected. Always.
All of us.
Here for you.
