In this episode, Steve talks with Stan Royer of Claris Advisors in St. Louis, Missouri.
After retiring from life as a professional baseball player, Stan needed a post-MLB game plan. With a background in economics, Stan got his feet wet in the insurance industry before realizing investment management was where he wanted to be. After meeting his co-founder and building his firm from scratch, Claris Advisors now serves 280 clients and manages over $600 million in assets.
Stan’s life in the major leagues helped him develop a competitive and goal-oriented mindset. Today, this mindset motivates Stan to help clients win and achieve their financial objectives. The more time he spends focusing on client goals, the more likely his clients will win and stay with him for the long haul.
Stan talks with Steve about helping clients win, planning for the unexpected, the importance of intentionality, and values to look for when bringing on employees and clients.
“When I’m advising, I’m really wanting to win and I’m wanting to win with our clients. And that means that we go through this whole journey together and at the end of the day, we win. And winning means fulfilling those goals and objectives that they have.” ~ Stan Royer
