Day to day, Kurt monitors client accounts and assists his team with implementing comprehensive plans for clients, which take into account investment management as well as tax and estate-planning considerations. It’s important to Kurt to work for a firm whose driving principle is doing what is in the clients’ best interests through an evidence-driven approach.
