You may think it's unusual to transition from health care to financial planning, but we see it as just another way to help you. So, we're still aligning people, just by focusing on your financial and overall health and to helping you make a difference with your money.
Our interest in sustainable responsible impact investing (SRI) started in the 60's realizing the power our investments can have to change the world. Ending Apartheid in South Africa was aided in large part by the SRI community and combined social justice divestment movement. September 2013 US-SIF The Impact of Sustainable and Responsible Investment report. So again pioneering in SRI before sustainability and green investing became buzzwords.
Allan was recipient of the "Keeper of the Flame" award from First Affirmative Financial Network in 2008-2009.
Starting to invest for my own retirement, friends started asking me for advice; plus health care changed significantly. Realizing how complex investing has become, and how critical the need for sound independent, and objective financial advice is, helped motivate me to study to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ in 1992 and start helping others realize their financial goals and dreams while in alignment with their values.
