He also watched both of his grandfathers build successful, family-owned companies and saw first-hand the impact of a sound financial plan. Wanting to help others prepare for their future, Scott launched his financial advising practice in 1992. He believes each client should have a comprehensive plan that allows them to achieve their goals and provides financial security.

“Planning for your future properly - it doesn’t just affect you, or your retirement.  I want  help each client secure the financial plan that best suits their goals, ensuring they are able to benefit from their hard work and dedication throughout their career.”

While retirement is synonymous with freedom, it can often bring stress and uncertainty.

When much of your income is dependent on your performance and, even then, much of that compensation is received through restricted stock, stock options, cash bonuses or when companies exit from the portfolio,, you often don’t have the time to create strategies that will be both tax-efficient and planning centric. Scott and his team know their clients in the banking world are deeply educated and can strategically partner with their clients to help point them in the right direction.
