The Cohen, Cohen and Rogers Team strives to help clients lead the lives they choose.In order to help clients achieve their goals, we begin by listening. Once we see the whole picture of what each client wants to accomplish, we work to provide a thorough roadmap to help them achieve their goals. We continue with regular meetings to review the progress. Goals can change, and so can the best road to get there.Whether clients are looking to purchase a new home, fund a college tuition, or provide a sustained income in their second act (formerly known as retirement), our disciplined approach to maintaining frequent conversations is used to ensure that those goals drive every investment decision we make.Goal-oriented investing differs from market driven investing in the way that it remains focused on the hopes, dreams and desires of clients and their ability to enjoy life, and allows our team to provide strategies. Regardless of the market conditions, clients’ needs and desires remain constant.Our team commits over 80 years of combined experience to understanding clients’ dreams and developing the plans to fulfill them.The team is made up of the Financial Advisor Randall Cohen, Senior Consultant, Francis D. Rogers, Jr., Analyst - Business Management, David Cohen and Client Associate, Dejan (Dan) Acimovic.
