Early in Ray's 25-year financial planning career, he recognized that a farmer's needs in terms of planning were far more complex than the average persons. Ray's previous farming experience having been part of a family farm unit, made him especially sensitive to the notion that helping a farm family prepare for an exit into retirement or succession was a bigger challenge than simply positioning an investment portfolio, life insurance policy or modifying a business structure. Successful transitions required a combination of a healthy family dynamics, financial literacy, business acumen and the respect for and adoption of professional advice.
