To quote a well-known meerkat from The Lion King (or Shakespeare if you prefer), “Oh what’s in a name?” What is QED, and where did it come from? QED can trace it’s roots all the way back to Tyler’s college years….well it actually pre-dates that by a few millennia, but college is the first time that Tyler had heard of it. QED is short for quod erat demonstrandum, loosely meaning “that which has been demonstrated”. It is used at the end of a mathematical proof to show you demonstrated what you were trying to prove.
In a round about way, Tyler’s math background is what led him into finance. He approaches solving the best possible scenario for your finances just like he approached those long complicated mathematical proofs back in his college days.
Working with QED means working with a planner who has committed to becoming one of the most educated planners in the country. Tyler is a dedicated life-long learner with specialty designations as a Certified Financial Planner®, Chartered Financial Consultant®, Chartered Life Underwriter®, Retirement Income Certified Planner®, Certified in Long Term Care®, and Financial Services Certified Professional®.

These certifications represent over 75 credit hours of college and graduate level courses, 27 separate proctored exams, and countless hours of studying. He has worked to know and understand these difficult concepts so that he can provide the highest possible value for our clients.
