One of the most significant lessons of the past year has been to expect the unexpected and to have a plan to weather any storm. Perspective is much easier in the rearview mirror but, as the world has reeled from encounters with crisis — the pandemic, political events, international conflicts — one reminder that may be helpful is that in roughly the past two decades we have survived and overcome the 2000 tech crash, the 2008-09 recession, and the 2020 COVID market. Time does indeed march on and the world continues to advance.
The experienced professionals at Anchor have helped clients navigate these events by reviewing their financial plans and making adjustments as needed. Decades of work in the industry and the depth of knowledge of the team allow for a comprehensive approach that has proven invaluable in providing peace of mind during these stressful times.
Since Anchor’s founding in 2000, the firm has been assisting affluent individuals, families, and corporations in Columbia and throughout the Southeast in charting a course to meet their present and future financial needs and goals. Anchor’s mission is to aid clients in the building and preservation of wealth by providing financial expertise and exemplary quality of service that has made the firm a valued partner across multiple generations of families. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, Anchor embraces the fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of clients at all times.
