My first job in the financial services industry was in the shareholder services department of Eaton Vance in Boston. I acted as the last line of defense for clients desperate for advice during the 2008 financial crisis. I could not believe there were so many people who could not get in contact with the advisor that sold them the mutual fund they were calling about, and I knew I wanted to change that. I thrived in that calamitous stock environment and enjoyed educating shareholders while talking them off the edge. That was when my true passion for the financial advisory world was born. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER" professional with our 67 year old family business at Bryant Asset Management, I personally advise about 150 local families and individuals. I am a member of the Capital District Financial Planning Association, a member of the Nex Gen Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy Board and a former treasurer of the board of directors of the Capital Alliance of Young Professionals. I graduated from Voorheesville HS and received a BA cum laude from Gettysburg College. My wife, Katie, and I live in Delmar. My big passions are golf, traveling and skiing. I share my passion for skiing by volunteering as a ski instructor at Double H Ranch. I believe it is almost impossible to have a completely objective view of your money, so I act as a 3rd party objective view for my clients.

About Bryant Asset Mgt

We provide great service: Our entire team of financial advisors and staff are dedicated to our clients success and wellbeing. Leveraging the latest technology coupled with old-fashioned personal service, we do our very best to exceed our clients expectations every single day.

We give back: We are a locally-owned firm dedicated to giving back to our community through our Bryant Asset Generations Grant program, sponsorship of the annual Delmar Dash, and ongoing support of numerous charities and community organizations.

Kelly's path to establishing an entirely different type of firm began in 2005, when she became a financial advisor out of her desire to help people feel empowered to achieve good things in their lives. In 2009, she received her CFP® certification. She worked for a number of years at a large, name-brand investment firm where her work ethic coupled with her genuine desire to connect with people and build authentic, caring relationships resulted in Kelly growing significant accounts and being promoted through the ranks. By 2016, Kelly recognized the time was ripe for her to set out on her own. She started LL&C because her due diligence revealed that the firm's principles were deliberately created in the client's best interest. These principles supported her goals of helping clients feel comfortable asking questions about investments and financial planning while delivering full transparency on financial advisor compensation. Caring about people is a common thread in Kelly's work. She has been an active member of the Rochester Women's Giving Circle since 2012 and was the Committee Chair for The Derby at the Country Village and Museum, an equine event designed to raise charitable funding. She is also a member of the Estate Planning Council and supports the MCC Foundation through Star Power and The Humans Rights Campaign Rochester Chapter.

About LynnLeigh & Company

BOLDLY TRANSPARENT We will tell you up-front, exactly how much our services cost. Compensation is neither hidden nor incentivized by emphasizing products for kickback payments. It's called fee-based compensation and you'll start hearing more about it from more firms because they are being required to do so. But know this: we embraced this transparent, fee-based approach before it was mandated by the Department of Labor. APPROACHABLE Our office environment, financial tools, and client conversations are designed to respect and help you, not overwhelm or impress you to the point of intimidation. We want you to ask questions but more than that, we’ll help you understand what you don’t know to ask. MORAL INTEGRITY We have a moral obligation to do the very best we can to add tangible value, maximized benefits, and true wealth to your portfolio and future. HARDWORKING We are advocates for full-disclosure of advisor compensation and client respect. Anything less is a breech of honesty. These efforts are driven by a genuine act of caring and a belief that this is how the financial advisor industry should be run. That takes real effort but for us, it comes naturally.

In 1977, we were founded on a simple idea: Just do what's right. That concept remains at the heart of everything we do for Main Street families every day. We teach people how money works, because we believe a solid financial knowledge foundation is the key to making healthy money choices. We pioneered the "Buy Term and Invest the Difference" philosophy - a crusade which revolutionized the life insurance industry and the investment business. And from the beginning, we have only offered term life insurance as part of our commitment to only market products that are right for the consumer, a philosophy we still apply to our solutions today. HOW MONEY WORKS When it comes to finances, how much do you know? If you're like most people, you probably know little about personal finance. Perhaps you think long-term security is impossible on your income. But, the truth is, no matter what your income level, you can achieve financial security. You just have to take the time to learn a few simple principles.

About PFS Investments

We help Main Street families get the protection they need at a price they can afford, invest for the future and get out of debt. We teach families fundamental financial principles that aren't taught in school and we give them an opportunity to build a business and transform their life. Primerica (NYSE: PRI) is the largest independent financial services organization in North America, serving middle-income households in the U.S., Canada and the territories of Puerto Rico and Guam. Its International Headquarters is located in Duluth, GA. Our distribution model uniquely positions us to reach underserved middle-income consumers in a cost-effective manner and has proven itself in both favorable and challenging economic environments. Pioneering the concept of "Buy Term (Life Insurance) and Invest the Difference." This core philosophy illustrated the idea that its mostly middle-income client base could purchase sufficient protection with term life insurance and also systematically save for the future in a separate investment vehicle such as mutual fund Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
