The Carson Capital Advantage
Our Wealth Operating System (WOS) replaces the flawed traditional approach to financial planning and investing and with a comprehensive system designed for continuous value and execution
Together we develop a durable financial plan that is anchored by your values and vision.

It will also be the foundation of your investment & risk management strategy.
Our investment system is not revolutionary, but it is powerful, data-driven, and time-tested. We utilize it simply because we think it's the best way to invest. We believe it gives you the greatest probability of achieving your goals and creating safety through a wide gap between what you have and what you need.
Our advisor-built technology helps you focus on the Elements that matter most to making and keeping you financially bullet-proof. It allows us to proactively monitor and optimize each moving part of your wealth strategy. It also eliminates unnecessary complexity, so we can stay focused on the doing.
No plan and no strategy matter if they aren't consistently executed. Carson Capital's carefully built Wealth Operating System (WOS) allows you to focus on living your life knowing your wealth team is continuously taking care of the planning and investing. We make sure the job gets done and done right.

Meet Donovan Carson
Hello, I'm Donovan, the founder of Carson Capital.
I am not a CFA. I am not a CFP, ChFC, AIF, FRM, or CIC... In reality, the most robust credentials you can have are achieving a high degree of personal success within the said domain. Just like I wouldn't trust a dentist with crooked teeth or an overweight personal trainer, in the same way, I don't think you should trust anyone with your hard-earned money that hasn't shown financial mastery in their own life.
I'm an investor and entrepreneur turned advisor after amassing a seven-figure portfolio by the age of twenty-seven through diligent planning and investing. I majored in entrepreneurship and finance and have worked at a firm with over $600M under management; however, the most important lessons I've learned are from my thousands of hours obsessively building, managing, and optimizing my real-money portfolio and investment strategy from age 18 to now. Similar to the attitudes of many entrepreneurs I serve, I didn't ask permission from someone or need a credential to become a successful investor - I just went and did it. It took a massive amount of time and dedication. It took a willingness to fail, to take risks, and, most importantly, persistence not to give up while I learned and refined my process.

Our expert investment team focuses on finding the best long-term investment opportunities available
We believe high-quality businesses make an excellent foundation for most long-term portfolios. The trick is finding them. That’s where our world-class investment team comes in. Using our strict investment criteria, they perform ongoing rigorous research to identify quality companies early in their high-growth stages that they believe can thrive over the long term, potentially rewarding shareholders along the way.
One should never do anything without skin in the game. If you give advice, you need to be exposed to losses from it.
--Nassim Taleb, Skin In The Game
In The Game
Our founder has a deep conviction in our investment process and strategy, best demonstrated by his 7-figure portfolio invested alongside our clients. We recommend for clients the same investment strategies used in our personal accounts and the accounts of our immediate family members.
We believe that no one should invest with us or our strategies if we aren't heavily invested in them ourselves. Not doing so would be as bizarre as a dentist who doesn't brush their teeth, a doctor who doesn't do preventative screenings, a personal trainer who doesn't exercise, or a chef who doesn't eat their cooking – it just doesn't make sense. We're all in!

Financial success is just as much about the ROI (return on investment) you get from the money you spend on your life as it is about the ROI you get from your investments. The value of money is that it gives us freedom and options. But there is no point to financial independence if you lack the health, peace of mind, or good relationships to enjoy it with. Build a life you love on purpose.
Build Your Life Fulfillment Map
Purposefully integrate your life and money to clarify what's most important to you, then achieve it.
Building a financial and investment plan isn't just about planning your money. It's about planning your life.
Make sure your money maximizes your fulfillment, not just your net worth.
Remember, success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
