Our hope is you will spend some time getting to know us through our website. We want you to learn a little about us, our philosophy, our services, and our pricing. We feel being open and honest up front is the right thing to do, and is how we would want to be treated. Additionally, we hope you will decide to reach out to us to set up an introductory meeting.



We chose the firm’s name based off two foundational components:


1440 - is the suite number of our most-admired mentor: Warren Buffett (3555 Farnam Street, Suite 1440). We admire his conservative approach to money and life. Additionally, we believe the following quote should pertain to how we run the firm: 

“Never do anything in life if you would be ashamed of seeing it printed on the front page of your hometown newspaper for your friends and family to see.” -Warren Buffett

It is a subtle reminder to do everything in our power to run the firm in a manner we would not be embarrassed if printed on the front page of the Omaha World-Herald or Kansas City Star.



Financial Partners - we want to partner with you. We do not feel the relationship is one in which we sit on one side of a desk in an authoritative manner and you on the other. We want you to feel this is a long term relationship and we are in this relationship with you: partnered. This is how we would wish you would run the firm if the shoe was on the other foot. These two components of our name help consistently remind us of our place in this relationship. It is why we chose the fiduciary pledge and will strive to live up to the ideals of the firm.
