Having a respected partner such as Cetera Financial Specialists provides access to the tools and resources needed to provide a first class experience while simultaneously maintaining advisor independence to select and offer the most appropriate financial strategies for each client. This allows every client to receive white glove service without being obligated to use any particular product, name, brand or strategy.
While access to the proper tools is important, the foundation for sound financial advice is a thorough understanding of the tax laws and how these laws relate to each client's individual situation. This is yet another feature that distinguishes our firm from the many other financial advisors who offer their services in this market. Unless you effectively manage the client tax situation, you cannot possibly manage the investments designed to meet client goals.
Milton is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with all his clients by earning the trust that his role requires. His goal is to provide such a wonderfully profound and comfortable experience that each client is absolutely determined to have their friends and family receive a similar experience with their finances when they are referred to the firm.
Most importantly, Milton has a deep and abiding commitment to operating with the highest level of honesty, integrity and dedication to client needs. We believe in helping clients assess their financial goals and we strive to give each client the tools to manage their finances effectively in order to meet those goals. We are committed to helping clients achieve their financial goals for themselves, their families and their businesses and fulfill this commitment by providing each client with appropriate strategies for asset accumulation, preservation and transfer.
Ultimately, our secret sauce is the capacity to provide clear, easy to understand explanations of complex financial concepts so our clients can move forward confidently. Empowering each client to be able to select and understand appropriate investments to meet their own needs is what provides each client with the keys to their own financial kingdom.
