Our Independence

financial independence

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. – Thomas Jefferson

During his first two years as a financial advisor, Scott Thaxton was an employee of a nationwide Wall Street firm. While this position allowed him to acquire expert knowledge and progress in his new field, it didn’t take him long to become disillusioned with a side of the industry that put quotas before customers and commissions before client goals. Intent on establishing a practice without the pitfalls of bureaucracy, he waited patiently and, at the right moment, seized the opportunity to take a major step towards independence and what would eventually become CarrThaxton Financial Group. 

Since 1998, Scott has completed this journey and gathered a team of like-minded individuals to create an environment where the interests of families are at the forefront of our work. In 2015, we officially became a Registered Investment Advisory firm to establish a level of accountability that is valuable to clients who seek an objective, independent, and professional opinion. Acting as your fiduciary, we are held to a higher standard of objectivity, transparency, and integrity, as we seek to deliver an exceptional client experience at a reasonable cost.

When you choose to partner with us, we don’t compete to sell you products, rather we utilize thorough research and sophisticated technology to design independent plans and employ a wide variety of risk-managed investment strategies. Our ability to tailor recommendations to your specific objectives and circumstances results in proactive guidance at every turn and in every market environment. We are proud to champion you in all that we do, striving to do right by others one client at a time.
