At our firm our advisors hold several designations and licenses including the Certified Financial Planner™(CFP®), Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®), Behavioral Finance Advisor (BFA™), Certification in Long-Term Care (CLTC®) , and the Series 6, 7, 26 63 & 65 licenses.

We build portfolios by selecting investments that have historically outperformed in down markets while still delivering favorable returns in positive years.
