Calling All Veterans Interested in Finance: How Can we Help?

By | 2017-08-18T17:08:33+00:00 November 10th, 2016|Research Insights, Business Updates|2 Comments

Today is the 241st birthday of the Marines, which is celebrated by all Marines around the world. Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day.

A great time of year to reflect and thank all veterans for keeping America awesome.

As former Marines, we wanted to do a small part in giving back to the veteran community by reiterating that our doors are open to all vets out there.

Basically, if ever have any investing/finance/life questions, you’ve got free life-time consulting from a PhD in finance — so reach out!!!

We will always make time to help: no question is too small or too dumb. We may not have the answer, but we can connect you with folks who do.

Semper Fidelis,

Wes & Pat
