Founded in 2005, Dan started Winslow Financial equipped with extensive investment expertise as Vice President and Actuary at Trust-mark Insurance Company. His unique trifecta of Certified Public Accountant (CPA), licensed Investment Adviser Representative (IAR), and previous Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA), makes him uniquely qualified to serve as a trusted adviser for business owners and individuals. Rafi joined Dan in 2008 after completing the Series 65 requirements to become an IAR. He brings a rich Actuarial acumen from over 20 years as a health care actuary involved with pricing, reserving, predictive modelling and data mining.
Our founding philosophy with its guiding principles remains extremely relevant in today’s ever challenging environment: First and foremost, we excel at listening and understanding our client’s needs. Then, once underlying issues are crystal clear, we work together on solutions. Our strictly fee-based compensation ensures we only have our client’s best interest in mind. No commissions; No biases. We excel at foreseeing, avoiding, and protecting clients from problems before they arise. Our extensive Actuarial training and expertise is all about risk – avoid, reduce, and/or get paid accordingly. While the ‘science’ behind financial planning involves selecting higher performing, better value investments, the ‘art’ behind financial planning aligns those solid investments with clients’ risk tolerance. The ‘best’ investments are useless if they are not an appropriate fit. And we outperform our competitors by minimizing expenses. Our fees and investment selection are designed to avoid necessary drag on our client’s returns. Our 99% client retention rate validates our success.
