Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 4, 2009
Quartz Financial, an investment planning and wealth management firm celebrates its two year anniversary on September 4, 2009. Founded by long-time Austin wealth advisors, Shane Moore and David Rust, Quartz Financial has thrived in the most challenging economic environment in decades.
"We continue to focus on the holistic approach to managing wealth. Comprehensive financial planning, cost effective and tactical investment strategies, utilizing insurance solutions at appropriate levels, along with a conservative overall approach has been the key to our success and our clients' success over the past two years", said Moore. "Many of our newest clients left their last advisor because the advisor offered no plan and executed accordingly", added Moore. "Accessibility and consistent communication have also played an important role in our success" added Quartz Operations Manager, Lori Dumas. "We earn big points from our clients when they find out we each carry a blackberry and are reachable 7 days a week".
"While our anniversary is newsworthy, the most intriguing part of the story is the "timing" of our firm's birth. We certainly wouldn't have predicted some of the economic challenges that transpired over the past 24 months, but it proves that a commitment to a conservative philosophy, executed by experienced and dedicated advisors can prevail in any environment. Vince Lombardi as a first year coach once told his new Packers team that they would relentlessly chase perfection knowing that they wouldn't catch it, but in the process they would "catch excellence". That's exactly our philosophy, and we are very much enjoying the process", said Rust.
