Daven believes in the concept of lifetime financial planning, as opposed to taking a random approach to financial matters. This is accomplished by first creating a financial plan that identifies areas of strength, weakness, risk and opportunities. Product and portfolio recommendations are made in line with the intent to help the client achieve their lifetime financial goal. The plan is reviewed and adjusted, at least annually, or whenever there is a significant change in Client’s situation.
