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 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.
So welcome to the website. If you are a client, you can securely access your Account View above to review your LPL Financial accounts online and utilize a number of resources throughout these pages. If you are a guest, there are some great tools to educate and assist you. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at (636) 532-3551 or by email at DurrWealthPlanning@lpl.com.
