A Virtuous Circle

According to the Oxford Dictionary, a virtuous circle is a “recurring cycle of events, the result of each one being to increase the beneficial effect of the next.” In a nutshell, that’s how Joss Financial Group approaches creating a holistic wealth management and financial life plans. We employ a series of steps, with each one building on the foundation of the previous step, until we have a comprehensive financial plan that’s proactive, objective and organized. If you choose to execute your plan with us, we work with you to delineate our respective roles and take action. The process comes full circle when we monitor our success, adjust as necessary, and renew your commitment to your life and financial goals.

Our Commitment
to You

Also, as a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), Dan must adhere to NAPFA’s Fiduciary Oath and Code of Ethics.

Is Joss Financial Group Right for You?

Choosing a competent, ethical financial advisor who will place your interests first can seem like daunting task. Because the title “financial advisor” is not protected in the United States, virtually anyone can use it. So how do you know what you’re getting? We recommend asking the following questions:

  • What are your qualifications?
  • What is your experience working with people like me?
  • Have you ever been sanctioned or have you been the subject of disciplinary action?
  • Will you act as a fiduciary when handling my account? (And will you commit to it in writing?)
  • What are your services? Your approach?
  • How are you compensated?
  • Will you be the only person working with me?

Joss Financial Group is committed to providing you with forthright answers to these questions and more. View our ADV Brochure, or schedule a free consultation.
