Kevin’s Comments on Hemenway & Barnes’ Client-Focused Approach

"Spend just a few moments with an advisor from Hemenway & Barnes and you will notice the marked difference in the way he or she functions. The commitment to service underlies every action and interaction. The firm is interested in people and the complexities of their lives, and excels because it understands that people’s problems are rarely one dimensional or easily categorized. It’s amazing how much you can help someone when you’re willing to take the time to listen to them. This sounds so simple, but too often this first step is skipped over by a firm wanting to solve a problem before understanding it.

Hemenway & Barnes keeps its focus where it should be, on serving the client."
