"When it comes to my investments there are two differentiators that I have found with Larry. First he is someone that you can trust implicitly because he has such high integrity. Secondly, he is attentive to both the markets and his customers and keeps us informed. I have had my investments with him for more than 15 years. At different points I had the bulk of my investments with other advisors. They have all been moved over to Larry."
