Jim joined the company in 1986 and began a practice in retirement planning. Recognizing early the need for stability and security in his retired clients’ lives, he has been a long-time advocate of income and insurance planning. Using a combination of fixed and variable annuities with living benefit guarantees and long-term care insurance programs, he has helped his clients plan for their retirements through difficult times for over 25 years!
