Experience

Makes all the difference

It’s as true as ever that the best approach is to start with individual investors’ goals irrespective of the market's movements. We believe in creating core investment strategies for clients that are driven first and foremost by their personal objectives, without getting sidetracked by current events. It is important to prioritize long-term goals over short-term gains. As we strive to individual investors in a changing landscape, we place a premium on the value of discipline and staying the course“.

As financial Advisors, our strongest assets are the relationships we have established with our clients. Our work is born out of the conviction that peace of mind is ultimately our clients' most precious commodity, and we work hard to deliver it to them. Education and communication is paramount to creating and fully integrating a plan for managing and protecting our clients' wealth.

We are well aware that seeking returns isn’t our only job. At the end of the day, for so many of our clients, it’s not really just about the money: It’s about how the money helps them accomplish the things in their lives from which they derive meaning. Our goal as advisors is to develop a robust understanding of those "other things“ that motivate our clients to invest - their children’s and grandchildren’s education and wellbeing, building a business or leaving a legacy.

Kelley Tatreau

Managing Director–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

During Kelley's professional career, she has witnessed three particularly difficult market periods during which clients’ emotions took center stage in their decision-making: The high-flying market of the late nineties, in which clients became over aggressive and abandoned a disciplined strategy, the dramatic market drop between 2000-2002 caused by the aftermath of 9/11 and the bursting of the tech bubble, in which clients' confidence was shaken; and the global financial crisis of 2008-2009.  As an advisor, Kelley recognizes it is the difficult times when she really earns her clients' respect. Her approach is balanced, her demeanor is calm and analytical and she believes firmly in the importance of knowing her investors as people and understanding their goals.

With Kelley's clients, she emphasizes asset allocation and total portfolio management. Kelley assesses strategies to help bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. This practice takes time, patience and great attention to detail. Over the last 31 years, Kelley has successfully helped her clients build, maintain and transition their wealth.

Currently Kelley is FINRA-registered and holds Series 7, 63 and 65 securities licenses as well as licenses for life and variable annuities. Kelley attended Bellevue University and has taken extensive courses on Estate Planning through Babson College, a private business school in Wellesley, MA. Kelley and her husband live in Springfield, NE., with their two children.
