Patrick Dickson, CFP® has been in the financial planning field for over 20 years. He spent many years working directly with his own clients, and then moved into leadership positions where his passion was to make sure that other financial advisors were responsible stewards of their clients’ financial situation. Over the years he’s seen how a comprehensive financial relationship can make a positive difference in a person’s outlook and financial outcome. People who decide to work with a professional gain more understanding and ultimately can attain more control of their financial futures. They are generally more optimistic and keep market cycles in perspective. Our industry has evolved in our approach to serving clients. We’ve moved beyond a product-centric approach to a strategies-centric one – and it’s that approach that he wholeheartedly embraces because it increases your chances for achieving a wider range of financial outcomes. He finds that the key concerns that most people need to address are financial organization and efficiency. He believes that those are the key goals – and everything else like retirement, educating children, paying taxes and protecting assets are tasks we do on the way to achieving those goals.
