Helping clients reach financial goals using investments that reflect their values.

As President and founder of Perret Financial I have been helping individuals and organizations meet financial goals since 1995. I have been specializing in Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), also known as Value Based Investing or Mission Based investing, since 2001. Although I do specialize in SRI I also work with clients across the full range of investment opportunities.
