My Services

Financial Planning for Individuals

I offer Financial Plans to my fee based clients at a reduced rate and to others at a rate of $175.00 per hour. This includes a report that shows weather retirement is within your reach now or how much longer you'll have to work and how much additional you will have to save on a monthly basis to reach your retirement goal. We don't simply help you establish your goals, we see to it that risk is properly defined and discussed with you. we listen because we know that it is important for you to be heard and in doing so we can help you understand the many options available to you.

Financial Advice & Consulting

I work closely with my clients to assess your financial goals and discuss how I can help you reach those goals. Then we implement a disciplined investment strategy to reach those goals and monitor the progress. I provide quarterly performance reports and year-end report for tax filing. I offer an open door policy and meet with my clients on a quarterly basis if necessary but annually is required. I recognize that some people want to go fast to meet their goals so they might want to do it themselves. if you want to go far and steady we should work together!

Portfolio Management

Everyone is different, therefore construction of a person portfolio is different then someone else's portfolio. We construct each persons portfolio to meet their needs and goals. We ask a lot of questions. or many clients, aligning their investment with their values is important to the portfolio construction.
