Daryl Christensen

Financial Advisor

Daryl Christensen focuses on helping clients identify financial objectives and creating a personalized process regarding near term goals and long term vision of retirement.  Over time, we strive to turn these in to attainable solutions enabling our clients to take consistent action towards pursuing their goals.

The process begins with the creation of a comprehensive approach that builds upon a client's current financial position then guides them through the various lifecycle phases they will experience in their lifetime. Eventually, these phases involve planning for timing of Social Security benefits, selecting Medicare alternatives, and providing for potential Long Term Care insurance options supporting our clients' quality of life.

Or, the plan may be more targeted such as establishing investment goals and creating a portfolio that reflects a client's investment time horizon and tolerance of risk. This managed wealth accumulation process involves periodic review and re-assessment of risk tolerance.
