The financial professionals at SJF Investment Management concentrate on offering affluent families, businesses and medical professionals with access to a comprehensive range of wealth management services and solutions including: financial planning, investment management, stock option analysis, hedging and monetization of concentrated equity positions, and retirement plans for small to mid-sized corporations.
