Are you an engineering or technical professional who has a nagging feeling that you could be doing more with your money?

Welcome to our site!

Most of our visitors want out of the pressure cooker. They come with questions about managing their investments, but really want the answer to one simple question: “Are we going to be okay?”

If you’re like our typical client, you:

  • Have achieved a certain level of professional and financial success.
  • Have stock options, restricted stock or some type of deferred compensation.
  • Have enough on your plate and are seeking solutions to get your time back.

Focus YOU offers integrated financial planning and wealth management services to simplify your life, give you your time back and increase your financial confidence.

While many people can benefit from our services, our founder, William Pitney, has spent over a decade working primarily with engineering and technical professionals.

Our clients have a strong preference for a systematic process, time-tested financial strategies and conservative investment solutions, and appreciate the personal touch.

You live with the constant pressure to deliver projects on time and within budgets, while working with and managing challenging people. We’ve designed our robust financial planning process specifically around you and your time constraints.

We collaborate with you to clarify your goals and achieve positive results. By partnering with us, you will:

  • Make smarter decisions with your money.
  • Mitigate and negate the impact of income taxes.
  • Take care of your heirs and loved ones.
  • Protect your wealth against lawsuits and judgments.
  • Make a difference in your community, should you choose.

Once you put your plan into place, you’ll be able to put parts of your financial life on autopilot.

We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area and have clients as far away as New York.
