We may be the right fit for you if you are a small to midsize RIA firm in Central Ohio and you want technology to:


  • Lower your risk
  • Maximize your security
  • Ease the operational burdens of your IT


Here’s why so many RIAs depend on Mark and FinGarde for complete IT services and support:

  • We are focused on RIA’s – You’re not a restaurant, or a gym, or a mechanic. You are a Financial Advisor and you need an IT provider that understands your business. We are committed to serving the Registered Investment Advisor and Financial Planning Community.
  • We understand the SEC – Financial Advisors know that SEC compliance is critical and you need an IT service provider who understands the role of the SEC. We have gone through SEC audits and know what they are looking for.
  • We Believe in Fiduciary Responsibility – While it’s not a legal or regulated requirement, we are committed to always acting in your best interest. We highly respect and value our client relationships, but when the rubber meets the road we are here to serve you. We aren't like a friend or family member who may let you get away with something; we are more like a coach or mentor here to tell you what you need to hear and how to move forward with your technology.
  • We are Responsive – You will not be waiting days on end for us to respond. Our average response time is less than 30 minutes and even the most difficult problems are normally resolved by the end of the day.
  • We are Teachers at Heart – We want to equip you to work in a secure and effective way. We won’t hide behind confusing technical jargon, we will explain problems and processes in clear, easy to understand language.
