This Week’s Craft Talk

Do you ever wonder how you choose a career? In Tony’s case, he got tired of his mother telling him to turn off the lights unless he owned the electric company. Well, Tony bought stock in Northern States Power to get her to stop telling him to turn out the lights. The rest is history.

Tony is married and has two young sons that keep him busy. His family resides in Edina.

Rudin and Rubin of Wells Fargo Advisors focuses on your financial world, so you don’t have to. They use the “Envision” process to uncover your goals and objectives.

Tony and his team provide comprehensive, consultative, investment planning and wealth management services to affluent individuals and families. Additionally, Tony assists public and private business executives and owners advising them through significant liquidity events including pre and post event advanced planning, hedging and diversifying concentrated holdings, and investment consulting.

Making sure your wealth continues to work in support of the goals you have established takes careful planning. Such planning is not a single event – it is a process. As your life circumstances change, so must the investment strategies we use to stay on course toward meeting your objectives. That is why we work with you, one on one, to design investment strategies targeted to your specific needs and goals.

Each member of The Rudin & Rubin Financial Group, and our support specialists, are committed to you. In order to make sure the investment consulting and advanced planning are tightly coordinated, our team works closely with all of your advisors. This often includes estate attorneys, accountants, bankers and insurance agents. Working as one team, we help optimize results across all the interrelated pieces of your financial life. The longevity of our team’s client relationships is a testament to the promise that your family will receive expert advice.
