“Before starting in wealth management, I spent most of my time solely as an estate planning attorney and was called upon by countless financial ‘advisors’ to prepare wills, trusts and estate plans for their clients. Doing so, I was able to have honest conversations with who they trusted for advice.”
“And what did I learn? The individuals in the families who entrusted these ‘advisors’ were working under the assumption that the advisor was acting solely in their best interests. What they expected was fantastic communication, relevant advice, and quality implementation. They want a relationship of trust, sincerity, and honesty. A relationship where the advisor puts us first.”
“I became frustrated with the lack of honesty and transparency that I saw in the financial services industry. And so I took matters into my own hands and have built the team to provide the level of service that I feel the community deserves.”
When not working, Neel can be found playing just about any sport or activity with his Pinky, wife of 22 years, and his two teenaged children (Anya & Jaiden.) He has a passion for traveling, as well as picking up new ‘learning’ projects ranging from golf and biking to acoustic guitar. Unless of course his Chicago Bears are playing.
