What makes Faith Investment Services different?
Gary Reese's passion for Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) led him to start his own firm in 2003, after being a leader in the financial industry since 1987. BRI is the purposeful accumulation of resources in a way that honors God, respects His priorities, and is obedient to scripture. Gary believes that every Christian should understand the influence of BRI and that every Christian should consider having their current investments screened to see what values they are supporting.
Faith Investment Services is located in Bluffton, Ohio—a small community in Northwest Ohio. Gary currently serves clients in over 10 states. Gary is a trained researcher and has a host of credentials garnered from years of study. He has international teaching experience and has been a mentor and trainer for other registered representatives.
As a former pastor and missionary, he is sensitive to the needs and unspoken concerns of people around him. He is committed to active listening. This creates an environment where he can explain options and teach financial principles without creating pressure. His clients appreciate being able to ask any question and receiving his advice free of obligation.
In the financial services industry, registered representatives are often called ‘independent’ or ‘captive.’ An independent registered representative is free to research a variety of products or plans that might meet your specific needs and implement what he perceives to be appropriate from a very broad field of choices. A captive agent is either employed by or committed to a specific company or family of products. When a captive registered representative looks for a solution, their field of choices is limited by what their company offers. Gary is committed to offering a broad range of solutions for YOUR unique financial needs.
