Founder and Managing Director
Paul Haarman is a seasoned entrepreneur, former wealth advisor and private equity investor with more than 30 years of experience in high-net-worth wealth blueprinting.
Paul’s past designations include Registered Financial Consultant (RFC), Certified Wealth Preservation Planner (CWPP), Registered Mortgage Advisor (RMA), and Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS). He has also produced and hosted a weekly radio show, The Shift Economy, on Austin’s Talk Radio 1370. Paul’s mission is to foster financial literacy. His visionary perspective on wealth management makes him one of the most sought-after financial advisors in the industry.
“Help people master the important financial decisions that will give them the ability to focus on the essential things in life.”
A strategic visionary, Paul's perspective on wealth blueprinting and his balanced life philosophy have made him one of the most sought-after advisors within the high-net-worth space. As an entrepreneur and investor, he brings a proven blueprint, vision, and network of relationships to the private investment arena. In the past three years alone, he has raised and deployed over $200 million in capital into high-yield investments in real estate, oil and gas, and corporate private equity.
In addition to Shift Capital Partners, Paul also founded three Austin-based companies: Angelus Group, Shift Evolution (a mission-driven financial education platform) and Renaissance Companies, a private group specializing in high-yield strategies.
Some of Paul’s mission-based initiatives include founding The Shift Warrior movement, a movement dedicated to fostering a culture of “Contribution Capitalism”. He also produces financial radio shows, most recently The Shift Economy, a weekly talk show on Austin’s Talk Radio 1370, which offered a vital new perspective on investing and financial planning in the 21st century. The show explores the causes and implications of the shifts we have witnessed in all areas of society and the economy. His central message is that the financial planning and wealth management strategies of the past would not work today due to fundamental shifts in the global economy.
At the heart of Paul’s life work is the message that true wealth is about much more than money; a lack of financial fundamentals is behind a lot of life’s troubles, and life’s true essentials are neglected when one’s relationship with money is out of balance. In light of that, Paul’s core mission is to facilitate a paradigm shift so people can master these fundamentals and focus on more of life’s essentials.
