By: Janet Rhodes Friedman CFP® CDFA® Wealth Advisor – High student loan debt is a reality for many families. In fact, the majority of college students in the U.S. face debt when they graduate. According to Forbes, about 66% of borrowers who graduated from public colleges have student loan debt. This begs a few questions: “Is an expensive education really worth it?” and “How much student loan debt is reasonable?” Of course, the answers depend entirely on what you and your child value (and how much you’re willing to pay for the things you value).

Advice In Common Language
You Deserve To Understand What’s Happening With Your Money.
Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.
At Abaris Financial Group, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.
What are you going to do with my money?
First, we’re going to get to know you and discuss what’s most important to you. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve with this money. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to pursue those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.
Can you handle the complexity of my situation?
We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While each family gets a personalized allocation strategy, we’ve helped thousands of families navigate their complex financial needs and guided them through life’s major decisions.
How can you make my life easier?
As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your lives. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – as much or as little information as you’d like.
Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at Abaris Financial Group we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.

Change can be challenging even in the best of circumstances and having an experienced trusted advisor to help you navigate uncharted territory can reduce your stress and make for a smoother experience.
