The Company

Sphynx Financial was created to meet the unique financial needs of professional millennials. As millennials ourselves, we've identified that our generation suffers from the following:

  • Lack of financial guidance
  • Overwhelming student loan debt
  • Information overload

Traditional financial advisors either ignore or misunderstand us due to a belief that we're lazy, entitled, and lack the capital needed to be profitable clients.

At Sphynx, we believe young professionals are the future of the economy. We treat you with same care  as traditional financial advisors, regardless of your current financial position.

Our process is simple. Check out our services page to see how we can help you.

Our Family

We believe everyone should live a life focused on the things that bring them joy, whether that be family (including pets!), hobbies, or giving back to the community.
