Your Financial Coaches

Located on the north side of Indianapolis and founded in 1995, Woodley Farra has more than 100 years of combined investment management experience. We are a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) with the SEC. We conduct all our own research in-house, focusing on individual securities. In addition, several members of our team have earned the title Chartered Financial Analyst* (“CFA”), providing our clients with an extra measure of confidence.

When visitors walk into our offices, they are often surprised at the open structure. Financial advisors sit at their desks in a common area along with the rest of the staff. As we’ve grown, we’ve taken our style from our roots: Don and George sharing one office, working side by side. We find we do better work for our clients when we aren’t sequestered in offices but rather functioning together as a team.

And while we embrace transparency and a collegial, team approach, we value our clients’ personal information and treat it with the utmost confidentiality.

Get to know us, and then give us a call. We’d love to get to know you.

We’re in This for the Long Run.

The safekeeping and betterment of our clients assets is more important to us than our own return on investment. We can’t say it enough: we’re in this for the long run. We’ve weathered many market ups and downs over the years and coached our clients through them. It’s about trust and faith in our expertise, about patience and perseverance, and settling in for the journey.

Along the way, we want your questions, your concerns, to know your hopes and dreams and needs. Investors who are comfortable with their assets being engaged for the entire investment cycle will feel very comfortable with our methods. If you’re looking for quick fixes and investing in what’s “hot,” chasing down the latest stock craze, well, we’re probably not for you.

Our advisors are always available to talk to you, either via phone, email or in person. You have direct access to us, when you need it. And so that we don’t bother you too much, we’ll reach out and contact you every quarter with a personalized investment report. For more about how we work, see our Process Page.

Your portfolio assets will be held by third-party custodians — we are not a broker-dealer, and you will never write a check to Woodley Farra except for fees. Our revenue is fee-based, not commission-based. Also, because we are accountable to our clients and to ourselves, all our performance results and calculations are verified by an independent third party to maintain accuracy and transparency.
