New business spotlight on Pick Fought Wealth Advisors

Pick Fought Wealth Advisors of Raymond James manages assets for individual clients, including business owners, retirees and professionals.

“Seventy percent of our clients are within a one-hour radius of Williamsport,” Brian Pick, vice president and branch manager, said. “Business owners are the biggest segment of our client base.”

Pick and his colleagues working out of the office at 1000 Commerce Drive, Williamsport collectively bring more than 80 years of industry experience to the table.

They opened Pick Fought Wealth Advisors in March after having worked for Merrill Lynch in Williamsport.

“We are very knowledgeable about what we do,” he said.

People are initially intimidated, Fought noted, about undergoing financial management.

He and his staff work to educate their clients.

“At the end of the day, it’s the connection we make with clients,” he said.

It includes learning precisely about plans for their assets, be it financing for a child’s education or saving for retirement.

Each of the Pick Fought team members bring unique specialties and personalities to the job.

With the opening of Pick Fought, the Florida-based Raymond James for the first time has a presence in this region.

“Raymond James has made a commitment that we will expand our presence in central Pennsylvania,” Pick said.
