Consumers have too few opportunities to get the independent, objective financial advice they need.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
Edelman Financial Services LLC, the nationally acclaimed investment management firm headed by renowned financial advisor, author and talk show host Ric Edelman, announced the opening of its Boca Raton office, located at 7900 Glades Road, Suite 310, Boca Raton, FL 33434.
“Consumers have too few opportunities to get the independent, objective financial advice they need,” said Ric Edelman, ranked the #1 independent financial advisor in the nation by Barron’s1. “We receive hundreds of phone calls and e-mails every week from people seeking financial advice and information, so we are opening more local offices to help them.”
With offices in Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts and Florida, Edelman Financial manages $6.5 billion for nearly 15,000 clients2 across the country. While most investment firms serve only the wealthy, Edelman Financial is known for also catering to those who are not yet millionaires. “Although many of our clients have a high net worth,” Edelman explained, “the vast majority of our clients are not in that exclusive realm. Our clients typically are middle class folks trying to pay for college for their kids while trying to secure their own retirement. It’s an honor to serve them.”
