Our Foundation

William E. Chatfield (Bill) recognized the complexity in an evolving financial world, dedicating himself in 1977 to becoming one of the first CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals in the Washington, D.C. area.

In 1983, Bill met Geoff, a gifted financial visionary and the two became associates and later partners.

Geoff's CPA experience coupled with his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Personal Financial Planning knowledge, added to the firm's investment management and tax integration skills. Bill and Geoff worked together up until Bill's retirement in 2000.

Geoff's client dedication and perseverance launched the practice from a small local firm into a nationally-recognized, award-winning, wealth management practice. The firm is now large enough to help meet the needs of most clients while small enough to provide personalized financial planning and tax integration services.

Our Journey

The past four decades have seen changes in both income and estate tax laws, as well as multiple changes in investment products. Clients have relied on SPC to help guide them through these challenges while keeping them focused on their individual goals and objectives.

Our Philosophy

It is our belief, individuals are often challenged in achieving long term financial objectives, as a result of volatile investment environments, changing income, estate tax laws, and potential complexities of employer provided benefits.
