Your Financial Co-Driver

We know that money can be a difficult thing to talk about, and that's why we have a culture of non-judgment. We've seen too many people hesitate in reaching out for help getting their finances in order because they felt bad about where they were or embarrassed about mistakes they made. Our ultimate goal is to get you into the slipstream to living a more successful and enjoyable life, and to feel confident about making important decisions down the road.


Benefits of Working With Us


We're a fee-only firm with a fiduciary obligation to our clients.

No commissions or other financial incentives to stand in the way of your best interests, and we're structured as a Registered Investment Advisor which has a legal obligation to hold our clients' interests above all others. You’re investing time, money, and energy into working with us, and we want to make sure you’re getting maximum value out of our relationship.

We're human too — our experiences  have helped us become the advisors we are today. 

No one is perfect, and we don’t expect you to be either. We strive to create an open, non-judgmental space where you can share your concerns and worries without feeling embarrassed or less than you’re worth. We understand that managing your money is a huge responsibility, and we value having the opportunity to take some of the weight off your shoulders.

Our goal is for you to need us less and less.

Through collaborative guidance and education, you’ll gain the confidence you need to make many of these decisions on your own. Of course, we’ll be here to guide you every step of the way, but throughout our partnership, we want to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to manage your finances on your own as much as possible so you feel empowered to take control of your financial future.

Founder

Stanley founded DRS Financial Partners to help technology startup employees in the Bay Area navigate their constantly evolving financial lives, committing to an objective approach and fiduciary standard.

Stanley has had an interest in personal finance, the economy, and investing from a young age, so it's fitting that he began his career at a boutique wealth management firm in San Francisco. Initially focused on the investment side, he quickly discovered how rewarding it is to help people improve their financial lives and give them peace of mind. During his time at the firm, Stanley became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and CFA® charterholder, leading the firm's financial planning efforts and sitting on the investment committee.

Stanley grew up in Hawaii and fell in love with the Bay Area during a high school summer program at Stanford. He came back to the Bay Area to go to Santa Clara University, graduating Cum Laude with a B.S. in Economics (Mathematical Economics concentration) and a Math minor. Outside of work you can find Stanley unwinding on one of the Bay Area's many beautiful hiking trails, improving his cooking skills, or trying something new.
