About Four Ponds
David McPherson, CFP®, founded Four Ponds Financial Planning in 2007 to provide sound, objective financial advice to clients looking for help with their investments, retirement planning and other money-related needs.
The firm grew out of his earlier career as a financial journalist when he gained an up-close view of the shenanigans in some segments of the financial services industry. He concluded there is an unmet need for sound financial advice from objective sources.
The firm’s name is derived from the Four Ponds Conservation Area located a short walk from David McPherson’s home in the Pocasset section of Bourne. Four Ponds features miles of walking trails that make it a popular destination for short hikes and a favorite place for mountain bikers and trail runners. A silhouette of the ponds that give the area its name is the centerpiece of the Four Ponds logo.
