Michael Johnson, MBA
President, Pillar Index Advisors

Pillar Index Advisors is a fee-only independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). We are DFA approved - and work exclusively in the realm of what really matters.  Successful families rely on me to help them achieve all that is important to them. I'm their advocate. To accomplish this I team with other top-flight professionals to make sure the best financial and legal strategies and products are used to secure their goals and dreams.

I also work with small businesses that sponsor retirement plans (401k, Defined Befefit, Profit Sharing) for their employees. I help companies understand what their true cost of their current plan is. I take pride in "wowing" these sponsors with a better, lower cost plan which I energetically service.

I started Pillar Index to provide a clean, conflict free relationship which differs greatly from overpriced, mass marketed Wall Street solutions. We place client's interests as our highest priority by eliminating self-serving conflicts of interest.
