“ I met and sat with Dave for the first time in 1987, and since that first meeting Dave has managed my family finances. Dave has instilled confidence in my investing choices always reviewing fund pros and cons. The diversity in our portfolio has proven invaluable especially in times of market corrections. Dave has watched my kids grow into young adults and now provides guidance in their investment choices. As a business owner the value of using an Independent Broker to build an employee benefits package with Dave has helped us mitigate costs while still providing coverage for our employees and their loved ones.”
