Welcome to our new firm, but it is a firm with experience, huge resources, and supporting institutions that are leading service providers to our clients. By being independent, we choose who are our service providers, who our money managers are, even what phone company we use. If they don't serve our clients well, we can change them. We are not stuck with one huge bureaucratic financial supermarket ("too big to fail" bank) who wants to sell/tie you to everything in your financial life. And by having many service providers to use, and choose from, we gain added checks and balance to protect your interests.
