His investment philosophy corresponds with his excitement as a Financial Advisor. Jim’s number 1 focus is helping investors achieve their financial goals. He is a bit old-fashioned, in that he likes to meet face-to-face with his clients and identify their short- and long-term objectives, including risk tolerance. He then develops an investment program using investment vehicles appropriate for everyone involved.
Jim places special emphasis on educating his clients. He wants to make sure they are comfortable with the strategies presented. His main goal is to have every investor know what they own and why they own it!
