Proven Success

Jim excels at guiding investors to grow and protect their wealth so they can enjoy a worry free retirement. He manages over $90 Million of retirement savings for a select group of only 76 clients*.  Many clients started with less than $500,000. The average retired client has in excess of $1.3 million.  Having a relatively small client base allows him to give each client the personal attention necessary to achieve their goals.
