Be aware that many corporate franchise brokers select the products of their company’s inventory before considering their client’s needs and they may sell products that benefit the broker and the company they work for more than their customers.

He conducts presentations to small businesses and individuals on effective leadership and the essentials of maximizing retirement income, managing risk, accumulating and safeguarding assets, and transferring wealth tax efficiently to loved ones.

COMPLIMENTARY FINANCIAL ANALYSIS:We will provide you with a complimentary third party analysis or “report card” of your investments to ensure you have the highest quality investments available and help identify your strengths and weaknesses. The analysis addresses 5 key areas you should know which are: Ratings (1-5 stars), Fees/Expenses (commissions, loads, internal fees, expense ratios, etc.), Performance (compared to benchmarks), Risk Exposure (Risk vs. Reward- Are you receiving the reward for the level of risk you are taking?), and Allocation (Do your funds have the same holdings?). The results often indicate investors have hidden fees and expenses, as well as, greater risk with lower average returns compared to comparable benchmarks. We will show you ways to improve the quality of your investments by reducing risk and expenses and create an opportunity to improve your returns.

TAX AND LEGAL DOCUMENTS:We will provide you with a complimentary analysis of your tax returns and legal documents including wills, trusts, health care directives, power of attorneys, and life insurance policies and help you determine if your documents are outdated and if there is any room for improvements.
