Craig Martin began his career in the financial planning industry in 1976 at the New York Life Insurance Company. In response to client demands, Craig moved into the security sales business five years later. By 1990 Craig gave up his license to sell securities because he preferred to work in the best interest of the client, not investment product companies. Because Craig agreed to a fiduciary contract with his clients, he was now free to utilize what he truly felt were the best, most academically evidenced investment solutions for his client. Craig has served as a board member for the National Association of Insurance and Financial Planners, and he is a member of the Financial Planning Association.
