“All firms say, ‘client first’. However, in recent times few have adhered to that mantra. We have, we do and we will. It is the cornerstone of our conservative approach and crucial to our forward-thinking decisions. We stand on principles and values, not emotions, something we think is important given market volatility today. Listening to you and understanding your needs so we can help you achieve your goals is the essence of the way we do business.”

“A client’s interests always come first… and each client is different from every other client. As such, I do not have an investment plan that fits every individual client or one capital structure for every banking client. My recommendations are specific to what fits the client’s need, risk tolerance, and financial profile. Maintaining a long-standing relationship is paramount and to do that I have to know and understand the client better than anyone else.”
