The Independent Financial Adviser Advantage

I have all the tools individuals, companies, and not-for-profits need for their wealth management as well as their financial planning for retirement.

Because I am independent, there are no requirements to use a specific tool. Therefore you benefit from advice and products tailored to your unique financial needs.

I have access to many financial products, including mutual funds, ETFs, stocks, bonds, annuities, and life insurance programs.

I use these and other products to build custom solutions for people, according to their individual needs and goals.

Q & A

– Why Should I Hire You?

For over 25 years, I have studied the financial markets, always striving to learn and adapt my knowledge to the new financial “normal” as it is continually redefined. The result: I can help you make smart investment decisions for every stage of your life, under all market conditions.

– How Much Do You Charge?

Most customers pay a fee which is 1% or less depending on the size and complexity of their wealth management needs.

Some clients prefer to pay an hourly fee. This is ideal for customers that want financial planning, retirement planning, or wealth management advice but don’t want to move their accounts.

Others prefer the commission model. Commission varies by product.

– Do We Need to Meet in Person

The initial appointment should be in person. There is no cost to you for this first introductory and fact finding meeting. If you become a client contact either in person, email or by phone is important.
