What is the origin of White Blaze?
Hikers along the Appalachian Trail are guided in their journey by a series of vertical markings painted on trees by those who have navigated the trail before. These "white blaze" markings alert hikers to changes in terrain, forks in the trail and other decision points. They also reassure hikers that they are on the right path.
We took the name White Blaze for our team because we too guide our clients, providing clear and reliable advice, as they make their way toward achieving their financial goals and independence. Like those markings, we will be with them at all points along the trail, and with the next generation to help ensure that they successfully pursue their destination too.
