Brant Faulkner is founder and Principal of FIS. He is responsible for all dimensions of the firm, including research, investment strategy, portfolio management, and administration. He personally provides investment management to individuals, corporations, and trusts.
Brant is a problem-solver, not a product-peddler. “I really value getting to know our clients and their unique situations. The most rewarding part of my job is helping our clients achieve the goals they’ve envisioned.”
Prior to starting FIS, Brant spent twelve years as a successful professional mechanical engineer at a major international manufacturing firm. As Chief Engineer, he and his engineering staff conducted research and development, and designed state-of-the-art equipment for the nuclear and petrochemical industries.
According to Brant, “The 1980s saw a great movement of engineers and physicists into the financial and investment fields. They were applying math and physics in revolutionary ways to capture investment opportunities and control risk. This was a period of dramatic strides in portfolio management and investment strategy. I decided to become part of this movement by founding FIS. That decision was immediately followed with thousands of research and development hours covering modern portfolio theory, econometric modeling, investment style analysis, and other state-of-the art subjects. Then, in 1989, we opened our doors to our first clients. Now, more than two decades later, FIS continues to bring a wealth of experience and solid, sophisticated investment techniques to dozens of satisfied clients.”
Brant is a Registered Investment Advisor and Certified Retirement Financial Advisor. He graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from California State University, Northridge.
Brant resides with his wife, Mila, in Bellingham, Washington (with occasional visits by the grandkids!)

Chris is a well-known investment advisor and financial planner who has advised families across the country. Over the last twenty two years, thousands of investors have listened to his advice on the radio and attended his presentations, including successful business owners and retirees of various companies and government agencies; many of whom now rely on Chris and his staff for financial guidance.
Chris has been heard on WLVU 106.3 FM as the Sunday morning host of the weekly radio program “Strategic Planning” and has been interviewed by other radio personalities in the Gulf Coast Florida and Wisconsin radio markets. Chris has also been a regular guest contributor on the “Ask the Experts” show and “Up Front with Vicki McKenna”. Currently, you can hear Chris each Saturday morning as he fields your financial questions on “Money Talks” on WTSO 1070 AM and 100.9 FM and streaming online at www.thebig1070.com. Money Talks is a call in format show where the ever changing topics of investment management and retirement planning are discussed.
Capstone Wealth Management was founded with the objective of helping you answer two main questions: “Will I make it?” and “Do I have any financial blind spots?” We have found that most people start seriously wondering if they will make it within 5 years of their anticipated retirement. We use a custom planning approach to analyzing your retirement income needs and have found that this approach provides you with a solid answer to the question of “Will I make it?” Financial blind spots come in varying forms. However, we have found that most blind spots come in the form of unidentified portfolio risks. Using a very robust risk discovery system, we help you not only identify what risk really means to you, but quantify what that risk might do to your portfolio if you encountered difficult markets (such as another 2008, financial crisis or rising interest rates).

Marta’s approach to financial planning is similar to her approach to strategic planning, which she did for a number of years for real estate boards around the state of New Mexico before entering the financial services arena.
Formerly affiliated as a broker with Dain Rauscher, she gravitated to the investment advisory services field, which she felt was more compatible with her goal of always seeking to act in the client’s best interest. Her clients vary from business owners, attorneys, engineers, and scientists, to homemakers, teachers, real estate professionals and others. What they have in common as her clients is a desire to work with a professional who is accessible, ethical, caring, and professional and who seeks to empower them through knowledge and regular communication while at the same time managing their portfolios with the highest degree of fiduciary responsibility.
Marta is a Certified Retirement Financial Advisor (CRFA) and Certified Senior Advisor (CSA), who graduated Phi Beta Kappa, cum Laude, from the University of Colorado in 1976.
