More Than a Financial Advisor

About William

I have been a financial advisor for over 35 years. My journey in financial planning began in 1985 when I graduated from college and became an Investment Consultant with a major national firm in Hartford, CT. After gaining invaluable experience in that role, I moved on to become an Investment Officer with a regional bank in New England, where I continued to learn and grow as a professional.

In 1995, I returned to a nationally recognized Wall Street branded firm where I honed my skills as a financial advisor for several years before deciding to start my own independent financial advisory practice in 2003. Since then, I have been dedicated to providing personalized retirement planning services to individuals and businesses alike.

My passion for financial planning is rooted in my experience studying finance in college. It was there that I first realized the power and potential of financial planning to help people pursue their goals and preserve their future. But what truly motivates me in this line of work is the deep and meaningful relationships that I have built with my clients over the years.

To me, financial planning is not just about numbers and investments. It’s about people, their goals, and their dreams for the future. That’s why I take the time to get to know my clients on a personal level, to understand their unique financial situations and aspirations. By doing so, I am able to provide personalized retirement planning services that truly make a difference in their lives.

I am proud of the work that I do as a financial advisor, and I am committed to providing the best possible service to each and every one of my clients. Whether you are just starting to plan for your retirement or you are looking for guidance on managing your finances in retirement, I am here to help.
