ORANGE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 17, 2020 / Planning and investing is a process that takes time. To quote Warren Buffett, “No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things just take time. You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant”.
COVID-19 has shown a lot of people just how important and necessary it may be to have a trusted financial advisor.

It was up nearly five times what it had plummeted to during the Great Recession, and investors had grown confident in year over year portfolio growth. That confidence soured within only five days when the market dropped nearly 17%. In unprecedented times like these, it may be wise to have an expert like Martin Shapiro, who has spent nearly four decades as a financial advisor, on your side.
