I have engaged Shankar for two different purposes. One as a financial advisor for me personally, and the other as a consultant for my startup financial services company. On both fronts, Shankar has excelled. As an advisor, he provided me with comprehensive service with a full understanding of what I need, what my goals are, and what my time horizon was. He understood and worked with some out-of-ordinary life situations that I had. As a consultant, his work was top-notch.
