Meet John Ingraham

Financial Advisor, Client Advocate


John has dedicated more than 40 years to building wealth through profit in his own business, for other business owners, and for private individuals. He has dedicated his time to educating others how to manage their assets and their tax, and has turned his successful skills into an easy-to-follow format for individuals. He is highly motivated to provide excellence in client services with a goal of complete client satisfaction.

Applying these same attributes to the insurance and financial services business has led to his receipt of numerous industry awards, most recently the LIMRA International Award “in recognition of achievement in productivity and professionalism, thereby helping to assure the future financial security of clients and their families.” John currently is a member of:

  • Ed Slott's Elite IRA Advisor Group - Advanced IRA Training and Certification
  • National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors
  • Top of the Table
  • Million Dollar Roundtable
  • Board Member of Brunswick Senior Resource, Inc.
  • Parish Council

Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Financial Advisor is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement of Financial Advisor by any of its clients.  Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser.

Evan Cutler

Retirement Strategist, Client Advocate


Evan has over 27 years of success helping people just like you with retirement, tax and estate planning strategies. He prides himself on simplifying this complex topic in the same manner he helped his own parents, and believes that retirement is less about how much you "have" and more about how much you "get to keep".  He also believes that to live the most fulfilling retirement possible, we must take action - mentally, physically, and financially.  Evan runs the charity he started PushUps4Parkinsons/The Cutler Foundation, and has committed to 1,000,000 push-ups over his lifetime to honor his parents.  His other passion is relaxing at the Carolina beaches with his wife Rachel and their three miracles;  Marlowe, Dahlia, and Jonah.
