About Reid Wealth Management
About Reid Wealth Management
Reid Wealth Management is based on the values of Trust and Adding Value to clients' lives. As a fiduciary, I must act in your best interest and if there is a conflict of interest I must disclose that conflict. I base all decisions on careful analysis of your personal and unique financial circumstance to deliver you a clear and concise vision for your future.
I started Reid Wealth Management after years of working at a bank owned wealth management firm where I felt the client was often left behind or forgotten as a stakeholder in the business. When the focus of the business is to consolidate customers assets and debts, a strategy called increasing their share of your wallet, conflicts between the interests of the clients and the firm's profits can exist.
Instead of spending the majority of my time trying to swoon your banking business, your mortgage, your credit cards, loans, your investment accounts, etc., etc. so that I can you sell you products, I want to be spending my time learning about you, your family, your desires and your reservations in order to build a long and fruitful relationship built on me providing advice based off of what is truly best for you.
Being an independent Advisor has allowed me relief from the pressure of sales targets, selling company specific products (instead of the best products available from any firm) and the perpetual push to add more clients hindering the ability to service your existing clients adequately. This also provides me with more time to spend on regular client contact to give you the reassurance and positive reinforcement that your efforts and hard work will pay off and that your plan is on track.
Trust is essential in any relationship, but even more so when one party in the relationship is providing financial guidance to the other. A lot of people do not have a close, confident relationship with their current financial and/or investment manager. I pride myself on honesty, competence and professionalism and I know that my services provide great economic and emotional value to my clients.
My experience and education in Wealth Management allow me to provide you with an in depth, fair and objective opinion of your financial position and offer solutions which are best suited to meet your goals. My success is measured in the ability to help you reach your financial goals and freedom while providing frequent coaching and commentary to keep you informed and feeling confident.
