We have known Leo for a long time, even before he started Security Financial. Leo has always been a knowledgeable advisor. However what sets him apart is his true caring for his clients. He is always there to give advice and teach you about you the best way to invest and takes the time to explain the options and his reasoning. There are a lot of financial companies and advisors but few with the concern and integrity of Leo.
