Our Clients Matter!

As mentioned in our previous Monthly Minute, the financial sector has changed considerably in the last 40 years. Today, we are always trying to ensure we provide what you need.  But today, we are asking! 

What do you want? How can we help to ensure your needs are being met, and focus on what is important to you? What can we do to set ourselves apart in an industry that is constantly changing? How can technology help us to deliver better service to you?

Things have changed a lot in the past 6 months and we may continue to see more shifts, it is time to find out how we are doing. We are working hard to provide you with the best level of customized service, but we always know there is room to improve. We also know that things change, and we must ensure we accommodate the changing needs of the industry as well.

Each client has received a survey to their email. Please take 5 minutes to answer the survey to help us to provide better service to you and our clients in the future.  In fact, answering the survey doesn't just help you, but $5 for every survey completed will be donated to Heart & Stroke.  So, help us help you!

The Yellow Brick House - Step in My Shoes

In October, The Yellow Brick House has been hosting a virtual walk to raise money to support their life-saving support services and prevention programs for women and children.  Donate $150 to help provide support for 1 family for 1 night!

My family and I are avid hikers and love the outdoors, but we are not walking for laughs – we are walking because 1 in 3 women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner. Violence does not discriminate. It lives here in our communities, behind closed doors, and each year thousands of women and children come to Yellow Brick House to escape domestic abuse and violence.  COVID-19 has seen an increase in domestic abuse and due to increased health and safety measures, their weekly costs have increased by $15,000!  Not everyone is safe at home, and every bit counts.

Click here to donate to our team and step up to end violence against women and children.

The event will close on November 1, 2020 so please submit your donations by that date. For more information the Yellow Brick House, please visit their website or email jtrollope@assante.com.

What legacy do you want to leave?

I am excited to be able to offer my clients, one more Unique Planning Experience, with the new Assante's Charitable Giving Program. This program allows you to incorporate philanthropic giving into your wealth plan with the use of donor-advised funds through Benefaction, a registered charitable public foundation.
