Doug Buchan, CFP® is a partner at Main Street Financial Solutions. He works with clients to help them make smart choices with their money so they can live the life that is important to them. Doug believes that financial planning – done correctly – is about assisting folks in achieving their true hopes and dreams. It’s about exploring each individual’s values, their needs and wants, their goals and their fears. It’s about working with them to both conceptualize and realize their goals while also protecting them from the risks and fears they see, as well as some risks that they may not see. Doug helps his clients walk down their own unique path to financial peace of mind and financial freedom – whatever that freedom and peace means for them. Prior to becoming a partner at Main Street Financial, Doug was the Chief Investment Strategist with The Tilson Financial Group. While Doug brings significant investment experience to the table, he believes no portfolio can be properly built without building a comprehensive financial plan.
Doug graduated Cum Laude from the University of Richmond’s E. Claiborne Robin’s School of Business (Finance Concentration) in 1996. In 2013, Doug and his wife, Julie (as well as their 3 kids), implemented their own financial/life plan. After much soul searching and personal discovery, they decided it was time for a change of course. Julie left the workforce so she could spend more time with their 3 kids and enjoy a little more life. They relocated from New Jersey to the friendly confines of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston. Life is good.
