Kent Financial Methodology

Life can become very complicated. Technology has, in many ways, made our lives easier, yet more complicated. We have more choices today than at any other time in history. We can buy almost anything from almost anywhere in the world 24 hours a day. The world of Financial Planning is no exception.

We have bears and bulls and even “spiders.” We have ETF’s, RMD’s and REIT’s. Currently there are over 7,000 Mutual Funds to choose from. Thousands of stocks are available from around the world.
