Rick Disharoon

Rick Disharoon, CFP®, AIF®

Rick specializes in helping clients with their overall investment management.  This involves a deep understanding of a client’s goals, objectives, and tolerances.  Investment management encompasses all assets in a client’s net worth, not just those exposed to the stock market.  Rick diligently focuses on diversification, liquidity, and the tax consequences of investing.  Diversification and asset allocation strategies do not assure profit or protect against loss
