TESTIMONIALS

James Rodney Charles, CFP®
The Financial Freedom Group

Making the move to transition out of our industry is challenging. For me, the first decision was to make the decision. Then it became finding the right people and process for carrying that our effectively.

My initial criteria were to find an independent, trustworthy, and educated partner who practiced the art of financial planning. From there, it migrated to the ease to making the move and who had the financial wherewithal to carry out the terms of a agreement. There are many quality people and organizations within the financial services industry.

Fortunately for my clients, my family and myself, I found a partner in AQuest Weaith and Jason Van Duyn.

I'm so happy that I decided to work with Jason and the AQuest Wealth team to help me transition to retirement. They provide the customer-centered focus that my client base deserves, while also enabling me to develop a customized strategy for my transition out of the industry.

The amazing staff at AQuest was able to transition almost 90% of my clients to LPL in 5 weeks. With Jason and AQuest, I found a partner that I could trust to work with me. Transitioning a business has many facets to consider.

The team at AQuest helped me transition my business so I could focus on my own personal retirement.
