Rod has over 20 years of experience as a licensed Financial Advisor, providing clients with dynamic solutions to protect and enhance their lifestyles and financial security. He strongly feels that Main Street America should have the same investment opportunities as Wall Street, leaving the large wirehouse brokerage system to be independent and provide products and services from a wide variety of institutions. This enables him to find solutions that are in the best interest of the client, rather than an investment firm, and to keep fees low.
The in-depth planning process involves a complete review of a client's portfolio, financial situation and objectives. This includes their assets, liabilities, expenses, cash flow, retirement plans, asset allocation, insurance coverage, tax status, risk tolerance and time horizon. Rod specializes in investing and retirement planning and is knowledgeable in all types of investment products such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds, alternatives and annuities. He also coordinates with accountants and attorneys to assist with tax and estate planning and risk management. Having extensive experience working with tax professionals in the NYC/NJ area he truly appreciates the important role they play in the financial planning process.
Clients can expect regular contact, active monitoring of their accounts and ongoing reviews to ensure their plans are adjusted as life situations change and that rebalancing, tax loss harvesting, etc. are performed as needed. As a licensed insurance agent Rod can also provide assistance with Medicare and help individuals select a plan best suited to meet their particular needs.
Additionally Rod also develops, designs and hosts educational seminars and presentations. Prior to becoming an Investment Adviser, he worked as an Investments Instructor and as a Research Assistant with Louis Rukeysers' Wall St.
In his spare time Rodger enjoys spending time with his 3 beautiful children and is very active in his community. He volunteers his time as Treasurer of Roselle Park Youth Football, Treasurer of the Roselle Park Cub Scouts and is a Trustee of the Community United Methodist Church. He is also a member of the CPA Plus Network.
