"Relevant financial planning is not a 30-second sound bite or cookie cutter/one size fits all.  You are unique, your financial strategy should be the same .  This is my guiding principle" .....Vivian Villers.

About Vivian Villers, CFP®, AIF®, CWS®

I am credentialed as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, an ACCREDITED INVESTMENT FIDUCIARY® and a CERTIFIED WEALTH STRATEGIST®, with over 30 years  in practice. I began my career with a large insurance and securities firm.  After 7 years, I founded my own firm, Sage Planning, and joined Sigma Financial, an independent broker-dealer. This change allowed me to "drive my own bus"  and create individualized solutions for my clients.  

 In addition to providing comprehensive, general financial planning,  I focus on three specific areas:  Women in Business; Special Needs Families; and Charities and Endowment Funds.

On a personal note,  I enjoy The Chicago Botanic Garden, antique and classic cars, and the Art Institute of Chicago.  I love to read, travel and am a graduate of The Silva Method.
