What’s the most creative aspect of your job?

Finding the right questions to ask in order to figure out what truly matters to clients regarding their finances and what their goals are and then formulating a clear plan to achieve those goals.

How do you see the HM Payson approach differing from other institutions?

The approach at HM Payson is truly a collaborative team approach where clients have access to expertise across the firm whether it be research, wealth planning, trust services, etc. Also, I think the fact that clients, prospective clients and friends of the firm are invited to sit in on our Thursday morning firm-wide research meetings is very unique and says a lot about the pride we take in our research efforts.
