"After all," he says, "each of us has a unique personal perspective on money." He spends a great deal of time working with clients to determine their financial goals and implementing strategies using the latest financial, tax and estate management techniques.

She is responsible for client communication and business processing and is diligent in maintaining an accurate and complete record of client transactions. Paula continually attends industry workshops and seminars to keep her skills up-to-date so she is prepared to knowledgeably respond to client queries. Keeping informed also allows her to work closely with Zul to prepare materials and gather data for client meetings.
