Professional Money Management

Let our team help manage your money, so you can manage your life.

In today’s complex financial world, investing often requires fulltime attention. Since you may have many other responsibilities, a solution may be to team up with a professional advisor. This decision may alleviate concerns about handling complex financial matters in today’s rapidly changing economic environment. An ancient proverb tells us, "Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed".

Jeff Robinson, owner of Family Financial Services (FFS), in conjunction with H.D. Vest Advisory ServicesSM (HDVAS) serves the investment management needs of middle to upper income individuals throughout the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Through the objective selection of securities and oversight of HDVAS, Jeff is empowered to offer a broad range of client-centered investment portfolios.
