About Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

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.
