Answering The Call

Silvis is Latin for Woods. In my logo, you’ll notice the windy path through the woods with the cross in the sky as my guidepost. For me, the cumulative events that shape our lives aren’t merely coincidence but God’s providential plan. My upbringing, education, experience, successes and failures all led me to a point in my life where starting my own firm was the only way to completely and authentically walk where I felt God was leading me.

After more than 25 years of experience in this industry serving at various sized firms in various capacities, I can now bring the best of those experiences into the financial planning process at Silvis.

Philosophically, I see money as a tool that should be used to facilitate what we’ve been called to do in the different roles of our lives.

The roles of spouse and parent are a couple of the most important to plan for but other roles such as business owner, caregiver, real estate owner/investor, golfer, national park season pass holder, boat owner, international traveler, theatre goer or even foodie are all roles that many of us already have or are looking to take on.

The planning process is designed to help you spend more time in the roles that you desire the most both now and in retirement. Don’t wait to start spending more time on the roles that you love to do. Let’s partner and put a plan in place to make them a reality now.

Where I started:

Originally from St. Charles, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, I graduated from Vanderbilt University where I majored in Economics, minored in Business Administration and managed to squeeze in four years of basketball between my studies.

Where I went:

I began my career in the financial services industry in 1996, and served as an investment wholesaler where I helped provide investment products to financial advisors and their clients. Prior to starting Silvis Financial®, I obtained the prestigious CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ or CFP® designation. I also hold the Certified Kingdom Advisor (TM) and Certified Exit Planning Advisor (TM) designations.

Where I am now:

Currently, I reside near Charlotte, North Carolina with my wife, Kierstan and two kids Sarah and Alex. When I’m not spending time with family I also enjoy watching live music, attending sporting events, trying new restaurants, checking out live theater and spending time at the beach. Since I still find myself listening to music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, feel free to email me at chris@silvisfinancial.com with any new artists you think I should hear from any genre.

Now it's my turn to get to know you.
