Andrew appreciates that each client’s goals and aversion to risks are personal, unique and in progress. He is happy to spend the time that is necessary to get comfortable with the current investment environment, a financial plan, and/or a portfolio. When designing a financial plan, he takes the time to evaluate each clients’ unique situation, including their: operating budget, personal and business incomes, cash flow & liquidity needs, assets & liabilities, employee benefits, investments, insurance coverages, wills and trusts, as well as basic personal family data and health status.
Andrew’s proven solutions do not stop at plan design, because he knows that even the simplest financial planning and asset allocation strategies need rebalancing on occasion. He continues to harness the firm’s collective knowledge, tools and tax resources to creatively adapt, and to share new ideas and insights as clients’ needs evolve and change over time.
