What our customers say
“I have spent 45 years dealing with people and their money. I have come to realize how extremely important “Peace of Mind” is in dealing with one of the most emotional pieces of their life, which is their money and financial security. I have always felt my style of wealth management is more conservative and income-focused. When I see growth and momentum styles running strong, I have many times began to doubt my value. It does take an effort to review my “Confidence Boosters” and focus even more on what I know, and to remember, “It’s not different this time.” Your comments and the coverage that Veritas provides has increasingly been one of my “Mental Health Checks” to stay inside my style and risk management guidelines.”
“It’s very important that analysts and investors have a voice, and to know that when good work is done to help disclosure, that has a positive impact on the quality of the capital markets. Thank you for spending the time to do the analysis that you do.”
