Common Sense in Financial Services

Welcome to R.S. Williams and Associates, Inc.! I am thrilled that you've stopped by for a chat! Our focus is one thing and one thing only....providing cutting edge financial planning and investment advice to our friends. While many advisors are focused on acquiring more clients, I am focused on deepening relationships with my clients and all the new clients that they refer to me. One of the things that is most rewarding about my career is the multitude of friendships I've made in the process of helping people with financial planning and providing investment advice. 

"Common Sense in Financial Services" is an answer to what I see on the financial news everyday and at financial industry meetings around the country......and that is that financial professionals tend to over complicate things and ultimately confuse their prospects and clients. I specialize in "straight talk" and candid conversations about what I can and can't do. 

I'm looking forward to finding out if we are right for each other! 

Scott E. Lake, CLU, CRPS, LUTCF, FSS President
