As an Investment Adviser Representative with LPL Financial, a registered investment adviser, I can help you define your long-term investment objectives and build a personalized investment portfolio designed to pursue them. I recognize the importance of getting to know you, your financial needs, your financial goals and your lifestyle.

My office was established to provide ongoing professional advice to investors while helping them address their individual investment objectives. I am able to do this by offering objective financial advice on a fee basis, as well as brokerage accounts. This method of compensation allows me to adjust your investment portfolio without requiring you to pay commissions.*

Working on a fee basis allows me to:

  • Provide simplified performance reporting, making it easy for you to monitor your account.
  • Support you with ongoing professional advice, timely information about your account and updates on the world’s financial markets.
  • Manage your portfolio and make investment changes without commissions* as your objectives or the economic climate changes.

If you would like any further information about fee-based asset management or other areas of investing, please don't hesitate to contact me.
