Broker Check

Your Financial Advocate oversees your Standard of Care checklist. Much like a physician who utilizes a checklist based on a patient’s age—the standard protocols to follow and particular tests to be run—we employ a Standard of Care checklist to help ensure that all aspects of your financial well-being are attended to. Through regular conversations about a variety of topics—from planning for a child’s education to making arrangements for aging loved ones—it is our goal for you to be prepared at any stage of life for whatever challenges or opportunities come your way.
