From his beginnings working for a 4.5 million dollar private company in the area of mergers and acquisitions, and being part of their transition to a public company of approximately 1⁄2 billion in revenue, to his experience as a top account executive for a division of AIG, Tony knew that he had a knack for understanding the core principles involved in creating successful financial outcomes.

We provide complimentary consultations to learn about what is important to you, determine how you are currently positioned, and identify if there are any gaps. You also will learn how we work with our clients. After our consultative meetings, one of three things will happen:
1. We may determine that you are in good shape, that no changes are needed and advise you to maintain your existing plan.
2. We may determine that although some changes could improve your situation, we are not the right fit for you. If this occurs, we would offer to introduce you to the services of another fiduciary financial planning firm that is more aligned to your needs.
3. Lastly, we both may determine that working together will be a mutually rewarding relationship, and we will invite to you to be part of our family of clients.
Either way, we aim to provide a valuable consultative experience!
