Throughout his years of service, Evan has identified two primary needs facing his clients today, retirement planning and education planning.  Quite often, these issues are intertwined.  Evan is able to see “the big picture” and understands that decisions involving both areas cannot be made in a vacuum. He is known for his ability to ask the right questions and assist his clients in developing a plan to achieve their goals.

    Choosing an Advisor
How do you advise I research a new financial advisory firm?

You should talk to friends and relatives for a referral of someone with whom they have had a positive experience. Make sure the new advisor understands what you are looking for and will work for your best interests. I also suggest you look at any individual broker or any firm using the FINRA search tool (www.finra.org).  It is not definitive, but you will get a picture of the current licensing of any representative, the length of time they have been in the business, their work history and if there have been complaints filed against them.
