“I needed a package of mutual funds for my RRIF that would provide some capacity for investment growth while at the same time providing only a moderate level of risk. Jan put together an asset allocation that has worked very well over the last 5 or 6 years. I have received my annual RRIF payment as required by federal regulations and the principal has been retained at the same time. I am very pleased with the investment advice that I have received.”

“I have talked to Jan on a number of occasions about making changes in my investments. Each time Jan provided a range of possible products with differing characteristics and this was a big help in making decisions about where to invest. Sometimes the review would result in a decision to stand pat and other times it resulted in a sell and buy decision. Regardless of the final outcome, Jan was unstinting in searching for viable options.”

“Jan Russel of Russel Financial Services has handled my personal and professional insurance needs for the past 15 years. Five years ago, my company decided that it was time to develop a benefits program for the staff. Jan helped to develop a customized program that has been managed effectively since that time. There is no question that he is a very trustworthy and knowledgeable. His work is always detailed and done in a timely manner. He has taken time to understand my personal needs and the needs of the company. Over the years, he has presented and educated me, my husband and business partners about a variety of options and products that are suited to our needs. He does not push any particular product for his own benefit. The result is that I feel very well protected within my personal and professional life and know that he will continue to guide us toward products that make sense for us.”

“I have been dealing with Jan Russel of Russel Financial Services for 3 years and have been very satisfied with the services I have received.

We have a strong relationship with Jan; he cares about us more than my investments. I find Jan’s personal staff very professional, efficient and trustworthy.

“For the past 30 years I have had the good fortune to deal with the Russel family as my financial advisors, Initially with James Russel and subsequently the seamless transition to his son Jan.

Jan instinctively understands my position with regards to investing. He has proven over the years to be trustworthy, caring and most competent in this advisory capacity. Most important is his demonstrated listening skills, whereby he will offer suggestions while respecting my risk tolerance at all times.

My respect and comfort level extends to Jan’s assistant Margaret Waller who consistently provides the high level of service initiated by Jan.

Given my long term positive experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Russel Financial; a familial based firm that genuinely cares.”
