Rod Gibbings has been my financial planner for over 20 years. We have traveled this path together and as time has gone by, I love how he has constantly reassessed my needs and goals.
His attention to detail is so very apparent as he (we) question my comfort levels as my life style and position changes. I can say with certainty that I would not have been able to retire at 56 if Rod had not been navigating through the economics of life with me. I credit myself with acknowledging there is a lot I just don’t know: what questions to ask, are there new rules that apply to me or what details should I pay attention to: retirement planning, estate planning with my daughter and grandchildren in mind, Tax planning and implications as my income and age changes, preparing for aging parents – it can make you crazy. My visible confidence in Rod shows. That has allowed me to refer colleagues, friends and family to Rod and his team. I look like a hero as every one of them has come back to me within days, weeks, years of beginning their relationship with Rod and thanked me. It’s more than investing, and it’s more than dollars and cents. The clarity and reliable guidance Rod brings to the table instils trust. None of this would succeed if his character was lacking. I like knowing Rod and his team are in my corner and I know I can count on them as my needs and circumstances in life continue to change. He pays attention.
