Carl Bass began his financial services career with Prudential right out of college and later spent a number of years with Connecticut Mutual. After a successful time in the insurance business, Carl decided he could not meet his client's diverse financial needs with the resources of just one company. He also found that the corporate environment greatly restricted his ability to help others experience financial freedom.
In October 1984 Carl founded Bass Financial Strategies, Inc. for the purpose of preparing objective, independent financial plans. From its inception the firm's focus has been to help others apply Biblical principles to their financial lives.
Carl has often said he doesn't want to be known as just another Christian firm providing secular financial advice…rather, he wants to be known for providing advice based upon the Biblical principles of finance.
What does this look like in real life?
Much advice given by Christians today is based upon current trends, thinking and experience, not Biblical principles.
