Creating a map for your future. Guided by people passionate about the journey.

Lockshield Partners

We named our firm Lockshield Partners for a reason. Locking shields is an ancient military strategy that allows for a much smaller force to defend against a much larger force. It darn near allowed the Vikings, the original special forces, to take over the world.

When the force of life is directed at you, it’s nice to know you have partners standing next to you to lock shields with. It’s the perfect analogy for life. And we believe it’s the perfect name for a Financial Planning firm.
