What do you value most in your client relationships?

Getting to know our clients and their families as not just clients, but as friends. Knowing that they trust me, and us, with very important and personal aspects of their lives is a humbling experience and something that I do not take for granted.

What’s the one thing people say you’re best at?

I would hope that colleagues and clients would say that I am clear, educational and understandable in my work and my approach.  I would hope that friends and family will say that I can be counted on, that I will be there to lend a hand, be supportive or be a listener whenever, wherever with no hesitation.

When you retire you’re going to…?

Ski or play professional hockey.

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

Although I grew up in Milton, MA and live currently in Westwood, MA, I don’t have much of a BAWSTON accent, but can conjure one up if needed.

2020 Q1 Investment Perspectives

Andrà tutto bene. It is an expression being used increasingly across Italian social media amidst the severe COVID-19 breakout in that country. Translated, it means “everything is going to be all right.”  It’s a message of hope, a message of strength, and a message of looking ahead to better days.

2019 Q4 Investment Perspectives

In 2018 everything seemed to decline while 2019 was a year in which most investments gained significantly. It’s times like these that drive home how and why we emphasize and stress having a consistent and intentional strategy.

2019 Q3 Investment Perspectives

What a difference a year makes. A year ago, we were in the midst of a stock market rout. Recall that the S&P 500 fell 13.5% in the fourth quarter of 2018, as the Fed was still considering rate increases and the trade war with China was just beginning.

The Grand Canyon and Investing for the Long Term

A month, a year, even 10 or 20 years are short periods of time in the entire scheme of things. Just as the Grand Canyon wasn’t created in a day, neither can a successful investment strategy be measured in the returns of one week, six months or even three years.
