NHCIBOR, New Hampshire Commercial Investment Board of Realtors
Minutes of Seacoast Marketing Session
Third Floor Conference Room
One New Hampshire Avenue
Pease International Tradeport
Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Thank you to Two International Group for providing this meeting space!
Mark Sullivan with Seacoast Asset Management was the breakfast sponsor. Mark shared that the USA Department of Labor recently passed a bill that will help all of those with investments. This bill requires that everyone with a securities license take care of the interests of their clients first along the lines of a fiduciary which is the way in which Mark’s business has always operated. Mark welcomes the additional protection for investors and opines that financial statements should all start to grow more quickly. Mark is happy to help but also recommends that bankers refer clients to their in house trust departments as they are also fiduciaries and have a long history of optimizing things for clients first. Mark was on the other side early in his career where sales goals of the advising company took priority and has enjoyed these many years running an independent fiduciary company focused on client gains. A valuable service that Mark provides for clients is a keyring that can be plugged into a computer that contains one’s allergies, power of attorney document, emergency contacts, and health care directives for immediate availability during an incident.
