The old mindset is a “retirement plan.” The new mindset is a living plan. No matter where you are on the journey, there’s hope for a bright future. Purpose and vision for retirement matter just as much as money. You have an opportunity to pursue your passion, explore new interests, and offer your wisdom to younger generations.
Stan has worked to provide sound and objective financial advice, in accordance with the client's stated goals and objectives, for nearly a quarter century. Stan listens to each client, their goals and their dreams. The Seasons team then develops an investment plan uniquely designed for each client. Over the course of a year, the plan is monitored and modified as market conditions dictate. Stan meets with clients periodically to review progress and any changes to their stated goals and objectives. It is imperative the client understand how their investment plan works.
In an industry where advisors come and go every day, Stan solidified his commitment to his clients and his chosen profession by moving his business to become independent of the big Wall Street firms in January of 2000. The move has been jointly beneficial for both Stan and his clients as he is able to offer an expanded slate of products and services to help meet clients’ needs while managing his business in a manner that is both morally and ethically sound.
