From the Partners

 “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.

We founded Silver Pine Capital with the belief that all financial planners are not created equal. We aim to level the playing field for the individual investor by bringing professional money management to the individual.

Our Philosophy

We believe the best way to make money is to not lose it.

We are precise in selecting investments for our clients and we make sure to fully understand and scrutinize the risks of an investment before deploying capital. Once a portfolio of investments is built, it is carefully managed with a keen eye on maximizing returns.
