blueprint retirement advisors llc

Blueprint Retirement Advisors was created out of a sincere desire to use process-driven planning to help clients make the most of their financial resources. Mike Wilson––concept driver and president––offers a high level of personal service to business owners and individual investors in order to help each client achieve the best outcome given their unique circumstances.


As a builder’s blueprint is the essential first step in the building process, a financial blueprint is an equally essential step for any individual constructing a sound, reliable, and lasting financial structure.

​Blueprint Retirement Advisors works closely with its clients, using the Blueprint Design Review process to help them reach a work-optional lifestyle.  Each client’s unique needs shape the outcome of the process.

Blueprint offers broadly structured, index oriented portfolios that are designed to take advantage of premium factors. These portfolios allow clients avoid hype, high fees, and hidden agendas that undermine results over time.  A core philosophy of strategic asset allocation, as opposed to a tactical- or dynamic-allocation approach.

  1. A commitment to broadly diversified, global portfolios with passive or passive-leaning underlying investments.

  2. A strong adherence to Nobel Prize-winning academic research, which has identified certain risk “factors,” and from which investors might expect to earn a higher return over time.

  3. A use of low-cost underlying investments whenever possible.


The portfolios we recommend are built using a multi-factor approach that takes strategic “tilts" toward risk factors including (but not limited to):

  • Size: Premium for exposure to smaller versus larger company stocks.

  • Relative Price: Premium for exposure to value versus growth stocks.

  • Profitability: Premium for exposure to higher profitability stocks.

  • Volatility: Premium for exposure to low-volatility stocks.

  • Momentum: Premium for exposure to recently positive-price-momentum stocks.
