Daily Investment Monitoring

From market open to market close, your team at CFS carefully monitors the markets on a daily basis, and adjusts your investment as needed.
Investments in securities do not offer a fixed rate of return. Principle, yield and/or share price will fluctuate with changes in market conditions and, when sold or redeemed, you may receive more or less than originally invested. No system or financial planning strategy can guarantee future results.

Periodic Reviews

At CFS, we never leave you in the dark. The client always comes first, and that means being transparent and communicative with you. This includes periodic reviews of your financial plan, keeping you informed and educated about where your money is going.
