Encouraging and Empowering Women to Thrive

At Johnson Investment Counsel, we believe that investment advice should instill confidence and peace of mind. Our passion is twofold: educating to give you confidence in your financial decisions while helping you navigate and prepare for all the stages and experiences of your life.

Financial advising is a close relationship built on trust. Understanding your goals and values are the cornerstones of building trust. This is why our team brings their passion and expertise for helping others to the table for every conversation. We are here to help you get, as well as give, wealth advice; to be a partner who provides ongoing financial education along with the tools and resources you need for long-standing prosperity. As a firm, we encourage and empower women to thrive, both in their investments and in their careers.

Why Work With Johnson?

You deserve a partner who digs deep to learn about you—your life, your family, your expectations, aspirations, and goals. At Johnson, we listen to understand your unique challenges, priorities, and the variety of roles you take on in your day-to-day life. Our female financial advisors are experiencing many of these same things—balancing careers, motherhood, caretaking for other family members—which is why we take the time to listen to and understand your responsibilities and motivations.
You trust us with everything that’s most important to you, so it’s our responsibility to be fully invested and committed to you. We will always put your best interests ahead of our own while providing the tools and resources you need to help you make the most of your investments and wealth. Part of that responsibility is rooted in our commitment to being an independent financial institution. As a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, we are legally bound by the fiduciary standard of care, which requires an advisor to act solely in the client’s best interest when offering personalized financial advice.
Our eyes are focused squarely on your future. We have proven throughout our firm’s history that diversified, tailored solutions yield long-term success and security. Together, we will form a plan that allows you to grow your wealth, achieve your goals, support the causes you care about, and protect your family and future.
