Frequently Asked Questions

We didn't plan very much for our retirement and now it is looming. What should we do?

Call me right away. 207.282.4500. It's never too late to get started on a retirement income plan. You're not alone. Although you may not have the savings you would have liked, you could have other assets that can support you in the coming years. Also, I can offer advice regarding certain government benefits, such as Social Security, that might be available to you.

My parents haven't even retired yet. Should I be planning for mine?

Now is a wonderful time to start planning for your retirement. It's also a wonderful time to talk to your parents about theirs. It's a good idea for you to all sit down together and discuss what plans they have for their future, and how their plans might affect you. These can be difficult conversations to have, but I can help facilitate. Also, it's never too early to start socking money away into a retirement account. If you have children of your own, adequate life insurance is certainly in order. I'm more than happy to review all of this with you.

What is your investment philosophy?

I use a Goals-Based Investing strategy (read more about it by clicking here).

Where are you licensed to practice?

I'm currently licensed to practice in California, Georgia, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New York. However, it's a fairly simple matter for me to obtain licenses in other states, as well. The jurisdiction of the license depends on where my client is domiciled in a primary residence.

What licenses do you hold?

I hold the following licenses from FINRA:

  • Series 6
  • Series 7
  • Series 63
  • Series 65
