  • Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy? Yes. My client portfolios do not include proprietary products and I do not bill in advance. My clients "rent" me. So, they can leave at anytime without having paid for services not delivered. I feel strongly that I must work consistently to earn clients trust and business by delivering prudent guidance and added value.
  • Why should I choose you as my financial advisor? I am passionate about Economics. My investing experience began in 1986 managing part of my College's Endowment Fund. In 1987 I graduated with Honors in Economics from the College of Wooster. I have a strong background in both Math & Statistics. I earned the designation of CFM (Certified Financial Manager) in 1996. I continue to add to my base of knowledge each year.
  • What are your qualifications? What is your education background? Very pragmatic. I believe no one can predict consistently the future performance of anything in the future. A good plan builds in a sizable margin to handle the variances which will inevitably occur.
  • How do you charge for your services? Investment management, Financial Planning and Estate planning.
  • How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services? 120 Families, 10 Business Retirement Plans.
