Philosophy & Approach

Mark believes a straight forward approach to investing helps clients be better prepared for the market movements that invariably occur. Says Mark, “Our belief is money is about giving you options. With over 30 years of industry experience, we understand that each client’s priorities are different, and our responsibility is to help them be in a position to exercise the options that are most important to them and their family. We always say that clients are trusting us with their most valuable asset -- their future -- and we take that responsibility very seriously.”

Cindy Raymond and Sam Maddox, registered sales assistants, support Mark. Drawing from more than  45 years of combined administrative experience, they seek to deliver optimum client service.
