Yellowstone Financial, Inc.

Can you be smarter with your finances?

We are excited to announce we have merged with McNary Financial Planning. Our new firm is Confluence Financial Advisors and we look forward to continuing to provide great fee-only financial planning service to our clients.

Yellowstone Financial, Inc. is an independent, fee-only financial planning practice based in Boulder, Colorado.

We are fee-only financial advisors. That means we sell no products and receive no commissions. Instead, you pay us an annual fee for our objective, personal advice on how to achieve your financial goals. This annual retainer covers all the meetings necessary and allows you to contact us whenever you have questions or your life changes.

We focus on helping you achieve financial independence, by taking a careful look at your financial obligations, goals, and plans for the future. To read more about the services we offer, click here.

Yellowstone Financial’s founder, Dave Gardner, is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), admitted to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. He writes the personal finance column for the Daily Camera newspaper.

Dave is also a proud member of the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners. Click here to view our Cambridge Pledge to Clients.
