Understanding your life priorities is an important part of the relationship with you. It’s not just about markets and returns, it’s about what matters most to you.  I can collaborate to help create a personalized plan designed around you, your family, your goals and your aspirations.

With over 40 years experience in the financial industry, Larry focuses on assisting clients who are in or nearing retirement, and business owners throughout all stages of the business cycle. Larry understands the unique challenges facing retirees in the current economic environment, and knows how to craft strategies tailored to meet your specific needs. This includes portfolio development, liability management, tax minimization, asset preservation, developing an income stream, and ultimately helping you to establish a wealth transfer strategy.

Larry works with business owners through all stages of the business cycle, from start-up to maturity, by providing strategies for cash management, group benefit plans, short and long term financing (for the business itself and commercial real estate if needed) and ultimately business succession planning. Business owners have unique needs to defer income for themselves and their employees, and our offerings enable them to select the best combination of plans.

*Financing Services are through Bank of America, N.A.

About Me

My mission, first and foremost, is to understand you and what matters most to you. Armed with that information I can ask thoughtful questions -- listening carefully, then understanding in detail where your wealth stands today and where you'd like it to be tomorrow. I help you design and implement a personalized plan intended to help you and your family pursue financial goals while helping manage investment risk. My approach is to focus on potential solutions that can help turn goals into reality.
