Daintree Advisors is pleased to announce that Barbara Attardo, Darlene Dahl, Lauren Desforge, Alex Gross, Mary Shahian and William Speciale have been named recipients of the 2019 Five Star Wealth Manager award as featured in Boston Magazine.

Five Star Professional, which sponsors the nationwide award program, publishes its list in the February 2019 edition of Boston Magazine. Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of the 2019 Five Star Wealth Managers. The Five Star award is not indicative of the wealth manager’s future performance.

On November 2, 2017, Daintree’s President and COO, Eric Godes, along with Partner and Senior Client Advisor, Barbara C. Attardo, were featured speakers at the New England Wealth & Retirement Conference held at Gillette Stadium. Barbara spoke on a panel entitled “Well-thy” women addressing the industry’s need for more qualified women advisors and how crucial it is for all advisors to understand the female investor and how best to help them navigate the wealth management and financial planning landscape. Eric spoke on a panel to educate advisors on how to build a thriving practice. Clearly not all firms are created equal, and by following best practices and always keeping the client’s best interests first and foremost, you can both build a thriving practice and ensure clients are well served while receiving prudent and personalized advice.
