Why I decided to become a financial advisor: Today's world of investing is complex and takes time to do research to make appropriate decisions in a timely manner. All to often families fall prey to financial predators that attempt to sell high cost products and lock up their hard earned money. Even though the world of investing is changing many financial companies apply unrealistic goals. Employees of these financial firms are put under career and goal stress to achieve them despite often knowing those products are of poor choice. I became a financial advisor to provide the greatest quality of products and service i know this industry can provide and that you deserve. Caring means putting our clients first among all else which is why I have taken the oath of a fiduciary advisor. I began my career at Meridian Asset Management and have held many bank management positions over the years. I have extensive experience working with upper level managers and their families. I hold a Bachelors degree in Accounting from PennState, a masters degree, and am a Certified Financial Planner. I take part in many volunteer functions such as scouting, coaching, and community projects.

After graduating from Penn State University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, I was lucky enough to meet with an advisor who helped me to start saving and investing. Unfortunately, I soon realized that the financial services industry is full of advisors working for themselves, instead of their clients. Years of underperforming investments, along with a general lack of concern for my goals from several advisors, led me to manage my own investments. And later, while working for Lucent Technologies during the Dot-com years, I had the opportunity to attend Lehigh University and graduate with an MBA in Finance. MBA fresh in-hand, I decided to pursue a career in finance. I worked in NYC for Barclays Capital where I soon learned that I preferred working with individuals as opposed to large institutions. I co-founded Schuylkill Financial in order to help everyday people plan for their future. Our business is centered around developing and setting realistic goals with our clients. To do that we need to be passionate about our clients and responsive to their needs as we help them clarify their financial picture. When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my wife and children, doing just about anything outdoors. Hiking and mountain biking are at the top of my list and I can usually be identified as the guy toting one of my 2 little ones on my back and dog by my side on many of Downingtown's trails.

He mainly works with seniors ages 55- 75 in Northampton County, Lehigh County, Bucks County, and Monroe County PA, as well as Warren County and Hunterdon County in NJ. His clients' retirement years are secured by addressing and fixing overlooked financial and non-financial "snags" before they happen. Three of these overlooked "snags" include: 1) A program to make sure a wife doesn't lose 1/2 their Social Security income when their husband passes away. 2) A program to cover two years worth of long-term care costs without paying a cent in annual premiums. 3) Making sure that your Power of Attorney document has the correct language to work with Social Security, Medicare, IRS, Veterans Administration, and your banks and brokerages. "As a fee based investment adviser, I have a fiduciary duty to put my client's best interest first. I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and to show you how I do things differently."

About Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

How I Work With Clients Long-term focus and discipline start with a sound investment strategy. The first meeting is a complimentary consultation. I like to get acquainted with you and your family to discuss your current financial condition and determine your invetment objectives. Once we begin a business relationship, we proceed to gather all of your financial data, which includes current investments, income, assets, insurances and any debts or loans. Upon determining your goals and objectives, we then analyze the information and agree upon a financial plan. Once an investment plan is agreed upon, our team of specialists will work with your own independent tax and legal advisors. Our goal is to add value through a comprehensive planning approach. Regular portfolio reviews will then be scheduled to monitor your investments and rebalance as necessary. We will also discuss any life changes that may have occurred and the opportunities and challenges that they may present. This is what all present and future clients can expect. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your investment partner.

About Financial Freedom LLC

Financial Freedom provides Fee-Only Wealth Management Services which includes comprehensive financial planning and investment management services. OUR PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO HELP OUR CLIENTS ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. Unlike many planners, we are Fee-Only Financial Planners. Fee-only planners are compensated solely on the basis of fees paid by their clients and do not accept any commissions or compensation from any other sources. This form of compensation should provide you with a high-level of confidence that you are receiving objective recommendations. Additionally, when working with clients on an on-going basis, we do so utilizing a flat retainer arrangement versus any percentage of assets under management formula. Each year we provide our clients with a Wealth Management Services performance evaluation review. We think that it is important that each client is able to evaluate the overall value that our retainer relationship adds to the achievement of their life goals and objectives. Our business strategy is to maintain a small firm focused on developing in-depth personal relationships with a small number of client families versus a cursory relationship with hundreds of clients. The Osgoods are the firm; they do the analysis and investing; they meet with you wherever you live; you won't be turned over to someone else once you become a client. We are seeking prospective new clients with a minimum of $1 million of investable assets. Check out our website at www.finfree.com for more information. Call us at 610-296-9500 for an initial no-obligation consultation.

Tower Bridge Advisors was founded in 2001 with a mission to provide high quality investment advice alongside outstanding client service. We manage equity and fixed income portfolios comprised of individual stocks and bonds. Our clients choose us because of our commitment to investment research, our experience in managing client portfolios and our laser like focus on our clients' needs. Our nine investment professionals each have, on average, more than 25 years' experience researching investment opportunities, and managing portfolios through up as well as down markets. Our investment process starts with a clear understanding of each client?s unique financial situation, and takes into account their tax status and tolerance for risk. Only by understanding these factors can we develop an appropriate investment solution. Our rigorous investment process results in a customized asset allocation for each client. Each client's portfolio is constructed of 35-40 stocks which represent the best ideas of our investment team, and an appropriate allocation to bonds to achieve the client's requirement for income and stability. From a client service standpoint, we make ourselves available for phone calls and in person meetings as frequently as desired. Our clients appreciate talking directly to the person who manages their account, not a marketing person or an intermediary. Our team of experienced administrators also reach out to our clients to ensure proper management of all administrative details of their accounts.
