Salutations! It has been several months since my last correspondence, but it feels good to get back into the swing of things. It seems fortuitous that our transition to our new broker-dealer, Calton & Associates, is coming to conclusion at the same time that the seasons are changing.
As autumn is upon us and the leaves begin to change and fall, I cannot help but reminisce about what all has transpired this year regarding my business. The amount of change that has occurred is nothing short of remarkable. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to all of my clients who have demonstrated so much loyalty through this transitional phase for me and my business.
We expect that the majority of the physical transition will be complete by the end of this month. While admittedly we have not been perfect, we have done everything in our power to protect our clients’ financial interests and provide the best level of service possible, despite all of the change and challenges that we have been faced with.
Presently we are working to clean up any final paperwork that is pending. If you have paperwork that you have received from us that has not been turned in, please send it back to us as quickly as possible. In order for us to provide the highest level of service going forward, we need your help to finalize any remaining paperwork that is outstanding. Please sign and return the documents to us, along with any Summit statements that you may have received. Providing us with your Summit statements will expedite the transfer process and enhance our ability to serve you.
While we have been working on the transition, the stock market has provided investors with volatile, yet positive returns year-to-date. The table below illustrates the September month-end returns, as well as the year-to-date returns through the end of the 3rd Quarter:

While we always appreciate higher stock prices, our special children in Honduras certainly were thankful for the support demonstrated at the annual One-Club Golf Tournament held recently. As always, our prayers were answered as the weather cooperated and the event was successful another year. Our next event for the charity is the 5th Annual Trivia Night, which will be held on Saturday, November 5th. Contact Wendy Noble at email@example.com for more details. We certainly would love to see you, your family, and friends at the event!
As the morning temperatures become crisp, and my beloved football season begins to take shape, please remember to stay healthy, wealthy, and wise, and certainly . . . stay tuned.
