At J.M. Arbour, we believe there are three stages to a person’s financial life: accumulation, preservation, and distribution/transition. It is our job to make each of those stages as financially comfortable and understandable as possible. This is accomplished by establishing a relationship, defining the roles in the client-advisor relationship, gathering all data, analyzing the data, creating a plan, implementing the plan, and finally, monitoring the plan with precision.

As life changes, and God knows it will, so may your plans and goals. Having flexibility in your plan is essential; and so is having the right people on your team. That is why the advisors at J.M. Arbour will work with your attorneys, CPAs, insurance agents, and other professionals to ensure your goals are first understood, and then met. It is possible we even exceed your expectations.
