Our Story

In 1987, Tom McFarland started Darrow Wealth Management to provide hard working professionals in the community an alternative to the impersonal nature of working with a big firm. From the beginning, Tom has always believed in the power and importance of relationships. Over 30 years later, this people-centric focus has resulted in many decades-long relationships with the firm’s clients and the advisory team.

Advisory Team and Evolution into a Family Business

Michelle Wells started at Darrow in 1988, working her way up to be Darrow’s longtime Portfolio Manager and the firm’s only CFA® charterholder. Caroline Coderre came on board in 2005, and has been a tremendous resource for clients ever since. Kristin (McFarland) McKenna, Tom’s daughter, later joined the team of wealth advisors and now the firm’s Managing Director.

Today, we are proud to be uniquely positioned as a second generation family business led by a predominantly female team of financial advisors.

Much of our long-term success can be attributed to our approach to client relationships. We get to know our clients very well. And as a Darrow client, we aim to provide honest and thoughtful personal financial advice unique to your situation. Through a disciplined and transparent approach to investing, we wish to simplify your life so you can go out and live it.

It’s About Much More Than Money

Your aspirations aren’t purely financial. Whether it’s about providing, protecting, educating, giving back, or simply enjoying your success, you need a financial advisor who is focused on what really matters to you and your family. Through our proactive 360° approach, you can feel confident that you have a trusted partner dedicated to growing and protecting the lifestyle you’ve worked so hard to build.

Transparency and Trust: Fee-only, Independent, Fiduciary Financial Advisor

Our clients want to work with an advisor – not a salesperson. As a registered investment advisor and fee-only wealth management firm, we do not sell securities, investment products, or receive any commissions.

Unlike many other advisory firms, Darrow is a full-time fiduciary. This means that we are legally bound to act at all times for the sole benefit and interest of our clients.
