Ben Shrader is a financial Advisor based in Roanoke, VA.
What do you value? It’s an important question. Do you value retiring early, funding a college education, becoming debt free, or passing on an inheritance to your grandchildren? We all value different things and what we do, whether we realize it or not, is make decisions on a daily basis in pursuit of what we value. The financial markets bring us fear because they create uncertainty on each of us achieving what we value. This fear and uncertainty will always persist, but what do we do about it? We look for guidance.
We’ve all seen the list of services for financial advisors. Is there any difference? Here is what I do: I spend each day giving my best effort to influence the decisions my client’s make in a positive way that will not guarantee, but will put them in the best possible position to achieve what they truly value. Financial services fall within this larger purpose. This is what I value as an advisor, and my firm is a reflection of how I can best deliver that to you. I value lifelong friendships and relationships where I can truly get to know someone over the years and better understand their goals and dreams. I value independence and objectivity, which is why my firm is set up as a private company. I’ll meet you at my office, your office, your home, or the coffee shop. If we value the same things….let’s start a conversation. I’d love to get to know you.
