Hector begins all client meetings with the purpose of bringing value to a clients situation. He helps them crystallize what is most important to them and then together develop a practical plan. This personal connection is what he enjoys most about being a financial consultant. Hector's desire to help people brought him to a career in the financial services field in 1994 after twelve award-winning years with a multinational oil company. He became seriously interested when told that the best financial consultant has a mind of a capitalist and the heart of a social worker. While affiliated with American Express, he built his practice in areas of retirement, investment, and business planning winning numerous awards for his quality of work. In his management role he was instrumental in the development of new advisors and was designated a Rhode Island public speaker for American Express. In February of 2002, Hector joined LPL Financial. At times I act as a devils advocate, challenging clients beliefs or decisions, at other times I am a counselor and sometimes even an umpire, - Hector Rodriguez commenting about his client relationships.

About Polaris Advisors, LLC

Mission/Philosophy: Polaris Advisors, LLC is a fee only Registered Investment Advisor helping individuals and small institutions build, manage and grow investment portfolios to support their lives and charitable missions. We believe our clients should be treated as if they were valued customers in the trust department of a bank, rather than just accounts at a brokerage firm.

Services: Polaris Advisors' primary goal is to provide unbiased, honest and accurate financial advice. We provide investment management, tax planning, estate planning, and retirement planning. We meet our clients and prospective clients in our office and/or their home. Relationship: We look for long term relationships with each of our clients.

It's easier and more effective to service clients we know well, while clients gain the confidence of knowing we will take care of them.
