If you are a Hill Investment Group client, you’re used to our team managing and reviewing your investments and allocation regularly. If you don’t work with us yet, let me ask you when the last time you had a fresh set of eyes review your investment portfolio was? If it’s been more than 5 years, then it’s time for an objective check-up.
