A Fee-Only Financial Advisory Firm

Dedicated to helping families and individuals develop a financial plan to achieve their goals so they can have more time to live life on their terms.


About Planning Trail Investments

Planning Trail Investments was founded by Alejandro Carvalho, CFP® in late 2019 to help families and individuals understand their personal and financial circumstances, and to work with them to develop financial strategies in alignment with their life goals.

We believe that Financial Planning is not just about the destination, but also about the journey. And that’s why we want to find that balance between not worrying about life after retirement and enjoying pre-retirement life within our means.

The firm was born with the mission to always do the right thing. The business model we chose allows us to set the values of integrity and honesty at the core of every step within our financial planning process.


Planning Trail Investments is here to preserve and enhance your financial peace of mind.
