About High Falls Advisors

We take pride in the long-lasting relationships we’ve built with our clients. As your trusted advisor, we’re committed to delivering straightforward, meaningful advice and helping you develop a well-defined plan to meet your financial goals.

Our close-knit team leads to high retention and a supportive environment where employees continually grow their careers, and our commitment to community is prevalent in the many organizations we support.


In 2008, James Englert and James McBride founded High Falls Advisors, Inc. (HFA), a Registered Investment Advisor. From the beginning, Jim and Jim believed in creating a firm that emphasizes the importance of clients, co-workers, and community. They assembled a diverse team of advisors with extensive professional knowledge, a commitment to providing the highest level of service, and a quest to never stop learning.

Today, we’re known for our wide range of services and the comprehensive experience of our advisors. We have the fluency and capacity to support individuals, families and business owners at any stage in their lives. Our advisor team includes CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners, Certified Public Accountants (CPA), Certified Retirement Planning Counselors (CPRC), attorneys, credentialed tax advisors, Kodak benefits experts, and a healthcare and employee benefits specialist. Although each client works primarily with their dedicated advisor, our team works together to share specialized expertise and provide support.
