What makes a good wealth advisor?
"An advisor must have the ability to listen to client concerns and address them in the most effective and efficient way possible. It’s also essential to look out over the next 5, 10, 20+ years and advise clients about upcoming events they haven’t yet imagined. Finally, both financial and emotional needs of the client must be taken into account when designing and implementing a financial plan and portfolio strategy."
What hobbies do I enjoy?
"Cooking and reading mystery novels."
