Giving Client’s a Unique Experience

Working with Brian is distinct from most other advisors.  Investment strategies and products are the last thing to be discussed.  The first few meetings are devoted to financial life planning and getting to know what is most important to you and your family.  Brian has developed a questionnaire to help you frame how you want to live the rest of your life.  From there a working financial plan is developed which can be quickly updated and stress tested at future meetings.  The last thing Brian will do is develop appropriate investment, tax, insurance and estate strategies to meet all your goals and help you sleep better at night. 

To ensure you stay on track with your financial life plan and make adjustments as time passes, Brian will meet with you on a regular basis throughout the year.  In addition, you will receive easy to read and transparent investment performance reports on a monthly basis.  Your fees are collected on a quarterly basis.  This gives Brian incentive to service you at a high level throughout your life and it allows you an opportunity to evaluate your relationship to ensure you are getting the proper value in return for your fees.
