Senior Financial Advisor, Manulife Securities Incorporated
Insurance Representative, Manulife Securities Insurance Agency

Dave offers securities through Manulife Securities Incorporated, and offers life, disability, and critical illness through Manulife Securities Insurance Agency.

Philosophy

Even more important than the selection of investment choices, a financial guide will provide you with a roadmap that will help you to determine where you are, where you want to be and how you can get there.

Given the uncertainty in financial markets, a financial guide can provide peace of mind and confidence in the knowledge that you can achieve your financial goals and objectives.

The guide will be provided to you with no obligation. An initial meeting of one hour is required to gather the necessary information, and a follow up meeting to present the plan will be required two weeks later.
