At Simard and Associates we believe that your financial and insurance journey is a joint relationship between yourself and your advisor(s). We look for three key things in clients:

  1. Honesty and transparency – in order for us to best service you, we need clients to be honest and transparent about all facets of their financial picture.
  2. Openness – We want to know exactly how you felt when you opened your account to check your balance after the last big stock market dip- did it keep you up at night? Did you choose to invest additional funds you had? By being open with us about your feelings and thoughts we can ensure we have your investments properly allocated to be aligned with your risk profile.
  3. Regular contact – We are looking to work with clients who want to actively participate in a meeting to review their existing plan. We are on YOUR team, and by keeping us informed of life updates and changes we can help adjust your investments to meet and unexpected bumps along the road.
