Independence Powered by LPL Financial
We live in challenging times. The headlines often lead the investor to wonder if financial peace is possible. I believe that is where a highly trained and concerned financial advisor can make a difference. My name is Christopher Durr, JD, MBA, CRPC® and I am an independent financial advisor located in Chesterfield, Missouri.
Our Show-Me State President Harry Truman once said "You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one. I don't believe in little plans. I believe in plans big enough to meet a situation which we can't possibly foresee now." At Durr Wealth Planning, we believe in taking just such an approach to your financial needs.
