Dave was recently quoted in the Chicago Tribune, where writer Janet Kidd Stewart tells readers how ‘Getting personal with your financial expert can pay off.’ Stewart suggests that clients get more for their money if their financial adviser has conversations with them and plans for those things that matter most to them, including the lifestyle they want now and in the future. Many financial service firms are increasing their efforts to address these important planning areas with clients. So how do you balance the values/lifestyle discussion with the numbers? Dave tells Stewart that it requires more than just a good relationship.
