Faye Sykes | CEO, Independent Advisor, CLTC & NSSA

Faye’s passion is educating and helping individuals and business owners design workable financial solutions.  As an RIA Registered Investment Advisor, Faye is a fiduciary for her clients and works on a fee-based or fee-only basis that keeps it transparent and simple for her clients.  After Faye’s mother lost her battle with cancer in 2006, she found that retirement planning is a lot more than just investing and earned her Certified Long Term Care Designation and has tirelessly learned as much as she can about Social Security and ways to help her clients maximize their options.

Faye has volunteered in many organizations including Senior Connections, Life Enrichment Senior Services, Decatur Business Association, Decatur Arts Alliance, Kiwanis as a Distinguished past President and a Lt.
