Community First partners with The McBride Group and Golden State Wealth Management. Rock-solid advice and financial management. Global knowledge, with LOCAL perspective.
Wealth management is a particular specialty we weren’t satisfied we could offer in-house. So we looked for experienced LOCAL experts with the same ethics of a not-for-profit cooperative. We found them!
The McBride Group, a California Registered Investment Adviser firm, has been serving our Napa and Sonoma Members since 2014.
We watched and vetted these guys for three years. That’s dogged due diligence.
