Independent Financial Advisor Salem & North Shore

When you need an independent financial advisor in Salem, Beverly, Marblehead, Swampscott, Hamilton, Wenham, Manchester-by-the-Sea

Life isn’t all about money, but it is an important tool for building the life you want. Like with any tool, the best results are achieved when skilled, experienced hands are in control. I have studied the financial markets for over 30 years, and as the new financial ‘normal’ is continually redefined, I am always striving to learn more about it and adapt my knowledge to it.

The result: I can help you make smart investment decisions for every stage of your life, under all market conditions.

Every smart investment decision starts with me listening to you and asking you the right questions, including:

  • What are your short-term and long-term financial goals?
  • What kinds of financial assets are you working toward?

Over the years, you’ll likely change jobs a few times. Your goals and risk tolerance will change too.

My investment ideas are only as good as their ability to keep up with you, so it all starts with getting to know you and your current investing situation. You may need your portfolio fine-tuned, or perhaps major changes are in order. Whatever the case, I’ll recommend a customized portfolio that addresses your needs and goals. And, as your financial advisor, I’ll commit to reviewing your portfolio at least once a year.

Whether you’re changing jobs, shifting gears into retirement, or already participating in an investment plan at work (401(k), 403(b), etc.), you owe it to yourself and your family to make sure you’re doing the right things at the right time.

Most clients pay fee-only or an hourly rate. The size and complexity of the client's wealth management and financial and retirement planning determine that fee.

Some clients pay a commission, mainly those with smaller accounts, i.e., Roth IRAs, some public-school teachers with 403b retirement accounts, or parents or grandparents who set up a 529 college savings plan.

The first introductory and fact-finding appointment can be in-person or by phone. The next meeting where I provide my recommendations should be in-person. (For the time being, telephone, Zoom, and email are replacing in-person meetings.)

Subsequent meetings during which we monitor your progress and investments can be done in-person or by phone, email, Zoom, or Skype - or, more likely, a combination of these meeting types.
