This is usually done in person at my office and only takes a few minutes. In the meantime, feel free to visit www.langefinancialadvisors.com. If you cannot make it by the office, please request an email version of the Risk Number questionaire. Plan For Your Future There is no one “best place” to put your retirement money because each individual and couple has unique requirements, different tolerances for risk, and need their money at different times. Likewise, there is no one place to keep your money that fits everyone for exactly the same reasons. Your unique circumstances must be taken into consideration if you seek to find the “most favorable place” for your retirement money. This is where we can be of service.
