“I take the time to get to know my clients. 90% of the time we may be talking about things that aren’t even investment related, but because I know the details of their lives, I can help them make decisions that are right for them.”

Richard got his start in the financial services industry 21 years ago, when he took a summer job with a stockbroker. Over time, he became a fixed income specialist, because he saw that investors who bought good quality tax-exempt bonds could usually count on a good, stable return. As Richard says, “Unlike stocks, fixed-income investments enable my clients to better prepare for the future, because they know what they’re going to earn.”

Prior to coming to HJ Sims, Richard worked at PaineWebber, Inc., Ramirez & Co., BBVA Securities and OFS Securities. His investment philosophy is straightforward: “Start as soon as you can. Stay diversified. Choose investments that can withstand bad times.” He also takes pride in the fact that many of his clients have grown with him and that most of his new clients come from referrals. “Treat clients the way that you would want to be treated,” says Richard. “Listen to what they have to say. Take the time to explain your thoughts and recommendations in ways they can understand.”
