As a financial advisor, I believe in preservation of capital. I look for strategies and time-proven methods to help minimize risk while still allowing for upside growth opportunity.

I believe in managed account strategies to help limit downside, living benefits annuities to help build personal pensions along with dividend-paying stocks as part of a total return strategy.
