Building Your Financial Portfolio

At Secrest Blakey & Associates, a financial plan is a combination of quantitative financial analysis and personal attention from experienced CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER's TM. Some clients choose comprehensive financial plans, in which we set financial goals that touch on all aspects of life. Others choose more concentrated plans that focus on one financial aspect, like retirement. Clients have the freedom to move between planning styles, choosing a plan that works best for them.
