But they don’t have the time or desire to manage their investment strategies or consistently monitor their progress toward their goals.Our clients come to us because they have realized that they need help to organize and simplify their financial lives. They want to stop worrying about whether they are on track to retire and seek the help of professionals who can give them that assurance.Our clients stay with us because we take the time to listen to them andunderstand them.
