Stuart Murray graduated from California State University, Chico with a B.S. degree in business administration. Equipped with a solid understanding of business, a natural inclination toward investing, and a desire to help others make wise financial decisions, Stuart then pursued certifications to become a financial advisor. Now, as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), a CERTIFIED DIVORCE FINANCIAL ANALYST® (CDFA®), and a CHARTERED RETIREMENT PLANNING COUNSELOR® (CRPC®) practitioner, Stuart helps people from all walks of life work toward their financial goals. Stuart's commitment to helping people maximize their financial present and prepare for their financial future motivated him to open Strategic Investment Chico. Tired of the bureaucratic atmosphere of large investment firms, Stuart saw the need to offer professional, trustworthy financial advice composed of both high quality services and personal care.
With over nineteen years of experience as an advisor, Stuart excels in helping individuals, families, and business owners plan for retirement. Rather than simply directing his client's hard-earned income into generic investments, Stuart personalizes investment plans to best suit each individual situation. He enjoys helping people of various life stages make plans and preparations for financial well-being. Using comprehensive planning techniques, Stuart helps clients preserve their investments and establish financial independence while pursuing their goals. Whether it’s providing a comfortable living, generating income for life, maintaining a particular lifestyle, or finding opportunities for the future, Stuart always puts his clients' interests first.
Stuart enjoys being involved in the local community and non-profit organizations. Currently a member of the Chico Chamber of Commerce, Stuart also has experience as president of the Paradise Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the North Valley Estate Planning Council. His interests outside of work include spending time with his daughters, golfing, skiing, working out, travelling, cooking, and entertaining.
