Randy Scritchfield, CFP®, LUTCF
Randy Scritchfield established his retirement planning firm to reflect his personal philosophies about the delivery of financial services to the public. The primary philosophy is that the client must be represented to the marketplace -- rather than a product or one company represented to the client. Randy’s team is able to pursue this goal because of their independence from any one company, product or discipline. This philosophy is the cornerstone to working with both businesses and individuals.
