A word from David:
“What I love most about being a financial advisor? Every time I help a client, it means I am helping them work towards buying a house, sending a child to college, having a comfortable, secure retirement, or fulfilling whatever dream they have for their family or business. I know our clients have sophisticated financial planning and investment needs that can’t be met with a one-size-fits-all product package mass marketed by many current banking and investment firms. As an independent advisor, I have the freedom to offer personal, customized service, unencumbered by restrictions or conflicts of interest.
Perhaps second only to physical health, financial health is one of the biggest concerns people have today. In my years of experience working as an advisor, I’ve learned that typically the more control, information, and understanding a person has of their financial wellbeing, the more they trust their financial advisor and the less stressful the entire process is. My job is to listen, strategize, and help clients create a plan of action designed to keep them on the path toward pursuing their financial goals.”
