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.

Kingston Retirement Group has been named to the Forbes 2023 Best-In-State Wealth Management Teams list. "Congratulations to Kingston Retirement Group for receiving this prestigious recognition, which is a testament to their commitment to offer the highest standard of success in financial relationships. The Team represents the best of our industry." said Kevin Reed, Executive Vice President and President of Private Client Group. Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Management Teams ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual and telephone due diligence meetings and a ranking algorithm that includes: a measure of each team's best practices, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. SHOOK's research and rankings provide opinions intended to help investors choose the right financial advisor and team, and are not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client's experience. Past performance is not an indication of future results. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receive compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking. Our Financial Advisors Peter Shelp, Susan Whitesell and Adam Shelp focuses on helping clients develop individual retirement plans and in providing retirement plan solutions to businesses.
