Hepburn Financial Advisors is a fee-based financial planning organization dedicated to helping successful people chart their financial course. Everyone deserves sound advice and no one should have to sacrifice objectivity to get it. For that reason we believe that the fee based service model is superior to the commission only model because our interests are aligned with our clients'. Once the planning phase is completed, our ability to implement planning recommendations with best of breed providers allows you to know that you don't have to "go it alone" to get the job done... so you can do what you do best. By placing your needs and objectives ahead of all else, we can truly live up to our motto – "Keep Trust".


To deliver the best advice to our clients, financial and otherwise, so that they can lead more rewarding and fulfilling lives with confidence that they have made the right decisions along the way.



Since before he did his first stock trade in 1983, Doug Hepburn has been fascinated with the markets, personal financial planning and helping clients to manage their financial affairs more efficiently.

As a CPA Doug was instilled with the principals of integrity and objectivity, while learning how to make the tax code work for clients as opposed to against them.

Like the statue of Commodore John Barry (behind Independence Hall in Philadelphia) our role is to point you in the direction to reach your goals and help you navigate through the inevitable storms that will arise so that you can arrive at your destination in tact.



To build an organization that delivers consistently on its promises so that when clients are asked who they trust ours is the first name that comes to mind.

What makes us different?

It's Not Just About Money

The core of what we do is help clients to make smart decisions about their money. While many of these choices are financial, there are just as many decisions that are non-financial. Whether it's the issues that come with sudden wealth or the values you want to impart to future generations, we're with you to assist with sound advice.

Being an Advocate

The marketplace is filled with products for every need, many of which have complex structures with numerous moving parts. Our job is to act on your behalf and sift through the multitude of options so that you can make an educated decision.

Finding Opportunities

We are constantly learning to make the markets and the tax code to work for your benefit.  That's why we work diligently to find out the intricacies of your situation so that we can identify the opportunities that will work and the ones that won't so you can feel confident you've made the best choices.

Connecting You to Professionals

When you become a client it opens up a vast network of professionals with their own areas of expertise to assist you with reaching your goals. Our objective is to match clients with the right people so you aren't left having to find the best players for your team.
