Steve joined the Dold Financial Group team in 2012 as a Paraplanner. At that time, the focus was incorporating a holistic approach to better serve our clients in meeting their financial goals. In 2014, Steve transitioned to become a financial professional. Steve enjoys engaging with our clients to find out more about them personally, their lives, priorities and objectives.
DFG team’s unique, in-depth process includes assistance with estate planning, retirement income analysis, investment planning and risk management/insurance reviews. These different areas are like pieces of a puzzle. They are all different types and sizes, but they fit together to form your unique financial picture. Life is ever-changing. So is the picture on the front of that puzzle box. We help through all the different phases of your financial life from getting started, getting married, raising a family, empty nesting, to retirement and through retirement that picture changes.
The same is true with our industry. What worked in the past may not be the best piece to fit into your picture today. Changes in regulations, laws, the market and the world around us, always present new opportunities to review, align objectives and if possible, improve our situation. Steve is passionate and committed to constantly learning and growing. He is proud to provide quality service and a consistent unique experience to our clients.
Outside of the office, Steve loves to coach youth sports. He is humbled to lead young men and to help them grow and learn life lessons through youth athletics that hopefully impact their lives. Steve and his wife, Angela, have two sons and live in Monticello.
