My Approach

One of the things you’ll notice about me is that I come to your home. Individuals tend to be most comfortable in their own home.

Our conversations will bounce around from business to family to careers to the weather to finances. Our talks will remind you of having a friend in your house just talking about what is going on in your life. I feel it is very important that you get to know me and I get to know you.

As I sit down and get to know you, I will learn about your family and your financial goals. We will discuss an approach to meet those goals. You aren’t obligated to anything. I simply want to hear your story, we all have one; and see if we can work together to guide you through the next part of your life. It’s an effective, yet simple, approach.

Once we decide we want to work together, we will develop a plan. I will then input your plan and all your goals that we have discussed into your new personal financial website and help you link all your assets in your personal website. At any time during the day or night or at any place you will be able to see how your assets are performing and how they are being utilized to reach your goals.

About My Practice

My practice is not large. That’s the way I like it, and that’s the way my clients like it too. Once you become my client, you will have my cell phone number. This will enable you to call me anytime of the day for answers. The only time I do not pick up my phone is if I am with another client and that is where my focus should be at that time is with that particular client. I meet my clients in places that are most convenient for them, whether that is over coffee, lunch or dinner, anywhere is fine with me. I am here to help you and your family reach your goals.

This type of personal approach, which we have lost over the years, has helped me grow my business. Here’s an example of how I helped one of my clients when thier parents became unable to take care of their finances:
A long time client contacted me for assistance with helping her understand the paperwork from her parents financial advisor. I sat down with her and her parents in their parents new retirement village and explained to them what investments they had and what the purpose of each of their investments were designed to help them with or not help them with at this time in their life. Their parents are still not a client of mine but helping my clients in any way I can is what my service is all about. This is just one of many examples I can give you to exemplify that I am truly dedicated to helping my clients and their families at anytime. My 10 years of experience in the financial industry, as well as the team of resources I have available to me, through The Investment Center Inc. and Pershing LLC, will help me find the solution or solutions that are best for you.

How I Help You

I carefully manage the money you’ve entrusted to me. The goals you have will determine how and where we invest your money. I will help you understand why and what we invest in prior to investing your money. You will also have access to all your investments as well as the investments, cash and debts you may have elsewhere with your new personal financial website. This way you will see how your goals are being met and what is happening to your net worth at anytime. Managing your assets is a responsibility I take seriously. I prove it by giving you a tool where you can monitor your finicial picture and be truly involved in the planning process and understand your financial plan.

As the market and your life take their normal courses, I will communicate with you utilizing your personal financial website to help you solve any issues or opportunities that arise. Making changes are going to be necessary but understanding why we are making those changes and what impact those changes are going to have on your goals are necessary as well.
