About Couto DeFranco

At Couto DeFranco we provide comprehensive financial planning solutions with a tax-smart approach. As a team of Certified Financial Planners™, Couto DeFranco helps clients establish financial goals, create a clear picture of their current financial situation, and produce strategies to reach those objectives. We work with our clients to find the solutions that will best support their investment strategies and help them achieve their financial goals.

We are an extension of the CPA firm, Couto DeFranco, P.A., formed when we saw the potential of wealth management that works together with tax planning. We work hand-in-hand with the accounting practice to provide financial advice with a tax-smart approach.

At Couto DeFranco, you have a team of financial professionals working with you. Our mission is to support your financial goals and investment strategy, and our advisors are here to make that happen. With a business consciousness and awareness, we strive to make recommendations that are helpful for your unique financial situation. We are aided by our back-office professional staff who make it their priority to always put the needs of our client first and make a difference in their lives.

Why Couto DeFranco

Unlike other advisory firms, Couto DeFranco is a team of both Certified Public Accountants as well as Certified Financial Planners™. Our approach to designing wealth management strategies considers every aspect of your financial health, including the tax implications of each decision made. Working together, we can help you take a snapshot of your current financial situation, and make a solid plan for the future.

Why Couto DeFranco?

Our approach to investing and achieving goals is always tax-smart. We look first at your investment outcomes by what you keep after taxes, not what you earn. Identifying tax advantages is a core component of working with Couto DeFranco Wealth Management, never an afterthought.
