Our story began after our founders witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of the market turmoil that followed 9/11. The tragedy of that day in and of itself was more than most could bear, but the affects were far-reaching and would be felt for many years to come. The market collapse that followed had a profound impact on so many people, but perhaps most significantly on those who were already in retirement or just approaching their retirement years. For far too many, their retirement dreams and what they had worked a lifetime for had been taken from them or altered forever by unimaginable events out of their control.
Recognizing a need for a fresh approach to retirement planning, our founders set out with a vision of helping others make their retirement dreams a reality in this "new" economy. Traditionally, retirement planning has been focused on rate of return, risk and reward, and ultimately the creation of a suitable plan geared toward accomplishing a client's goals. Our approach certainly incorporates those important aspects of planning, and while our strategies are comprehensive and our solutions cutting-edge, our focus is on taking the time to help you understand your options and on working together with you to address your concerns.
With so much information available at our fingertips today, we realize it can be confusing to know what advice to follow and where to turn, often leaving you with more questions than answers. Knowing which questions to ask and the specific steps to take can be the difference between clarity and confusion. That's why our process begins with clarifying your values. We seek first to understand your individual situation and what's important to you by asking insightful and profound questions that the typical advisor may not even risk asking.
You won't find any cookie-cutter strategies or one-size-fits-all solutions here. Our clients bring in financial problems as different and unique as each of their own fingerprints. That's why at JC Grason, the idea of bringing together experienced Financial Advisors, Tax Professionals and Estate Planners was not a clever accident -- it is our belief that the best advice and planning comes from the synergy of having all these professionals working together for you in perfect harmony. Guided by your goals and objectives, our team of professionals will tailor a plan to meet your specific needs.
But it doesn't end there. We believe that greatness lies not only in the fundamentals, but in the details. We understand that our reputation is built through the individual experiences of each of our clients. Our roots are anchored in a solid foundation of old-fashioned values and a dedication to treating each and every person with the respect and dignity they deserve. Our commitment to you is that you will never be pressured to make a decision. Put simply, we treat others the way we would want to be treated. We invite you to take the opportunity to see the JC Grason difference -- it may just be the type of consultative, no-nonsense approach you've been looking for.
