Letter from the Founder
I believe that in order to trust, grow, and have fulfillment in life you must have a clear sense of why you do what you do.
For over 29 years I’ve focused my professional life on a single mission: to work closely with families and provide them the best direction, service, and tools to help them build a secure and prosperous financial future.
The Fox Alliance started as a one-man operation in 1986, and since then has turned into a full-fledged team of financial advisors with diverse backgrounds and 65 years of combined experience. I invite you to learn more about our team and our approach. We now have the privilege of serving hundreds of families throughout the country.
Over the years, I’ve helped guide my clients through dramatic economic changes. From the stock-market prosperity in the 1990s to the dot-com bubble in the early 2000s, and most recently the devastating effects of the Great Recession.
One thing has been constant: money is a powerful tool. It can bring all of us a great deal of anxiety or peace-of-mind. I’ve spent my life witnessing the enormous impact a sound portfolio can have on the life of my clients, the people I serve. Sometimes, it literally kept their life together when everything else around them failed. And with those experiences, I’ve learned that more than anything else, my clients wanted – needed – to trust that I was dedicated to their goals no matter what challenges we’d face together. I have greatly embraced that trust.
By focusing on the right financial principles and models, we can make the biggest difference in people’s futures and, most importantly, help empower them to live a better life today.
– Bill Fox, Founder and President, The Fox Alliance
