I graduated from Clemson University in 1995 and quickly attained my Series 6 and Series 63 Securities License as well as attended The American College to become certified by the LUTC in “Advanced Estate Planning”. I am currently obtaining my CFP(Certified Financial Planner) designation at Duke University.
You see, many advisers are compensated by commissions. This could possibly influence the advice that they provide. I wanted to eliminate this influence and conflict of interest. If you hold a Series 65 Securities License, then you are bound by law to a “Fiduciary” duty as opposed to a “Suitability” duty. This is a very important distinction.
I believe that personalized service is essential when matching clients with the right plan. Everyone’s situation is unique, and I keep that in mind when helping clients accomplish their goals.
I understand that my clients are in different stages of their life and may be purchasing their first home, financing a child’s college, planning for retirement, or protecting their savings while trying to grow there savings while in retirement. I believe that a financial plan must reflect their personal situation.
