Ask Jordan what is important and he will say, "Having a relationship with my clients that goes beyond investments. In order to do the very best for my clients, I need to gain their trust. I need to know what is going on in their lives. They need to trust me with this information so I can help to make the most appropriate decisions, not only with regards to investments but tax and financial planning. Raymond James has world-class resources that help my clients with their big picture; it's my job to help clients navigate through these offerings to make sure the small picture is taken care of as well."
