Dan Cairns, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, MSFS

Financial Advisor

My Approach

Your personal financial needs are unique.  Through genuine dialogue, we will review your current financial situation and intentions.  Then, I'll identify intelligent, comprehensive financial options to help you reach your goals.  I am committed to doing the right thing and building a foundation of trust and loyalty by providing careful management of your plan.

Many people look back on their lives with regret; not for the things they have done, but for the things they have left undone. They find they are more successful than they thought they would be and saved less than they intended. They find themselves in situations that are more complex and less predictable than they anticipated.

That is where I come in. I take the time to get to know you and your preferences. I can help you anticipate and prepare for the best and worst scenarios. The relationship I establish with you enables me to focus on your needs - what you want for your family and what you are currently doing.

Before you agree to receive financial planning services, please see complete information and disclosures in the NMIS Financial Planning Brochure (also called the ADV brochure) and review the terms of the NMIS Planning Engagement Agreement. These may be obtained from Dan Cairns.

My Mission

My mission is to build trusting relationships and work in association with extraordinary people.  I'll help them discover financial security and understanding amid the business of life.
