Blog

As a newer financial professional to Kaufman Financial Services, I have done a lot of research for our firm during my employment. Personally, I like to research financial/ personal finance topics and share my findings with others. The point of this blog is to educate both our client base and the general public with little bits of possibly useful information. If I can educate you on a financial topic that is top of mind, I will have considered my goal achieved. So read on and hopefully I can provide information/ answers to some common financial quandaries.

 

P.S. If you have any topics you would like to have researched, send me a message!
