- Why Summit?
We adopt a consultative approach at the earliest stage of every client engagement. Even when an initial conversation doesn’t translate into a working relationship, the people we connect with feel their interaction with us is worthwhile, enlightening, and represents time well spent.
Both across our divisions and in our client relationships, we promote a culture of collaboration based on high professional standards and consistent service delivery. The daily interactions that take place among our experts and with our clients’ advisors create benefits for clients who work with an individual division or entrust us with multiple lines of business.
In a world where markets fluctuate and certainty is elusive, we maintain that emphasizing the long view over short-term gain improves the quality and performance of our plans, investments, and client relationships.
