Beth Beebe began working part-time with her father, David Craig, in the financial services industry in 2006 while completing her Masters in Education at Xavier University. Following 10 years of teaching in a local public school, her father offered her the opportunity to partner with him at Craig Capital Wealth Management as a Financial Advisor.
The decision to move her passion for teaching from the classroom to finance wasn't difficult to make. “I still feel like I am teaching, just different content, to a different clientele,” Beth explains.
Her love of teaching and her interest in helping others makes her a great client resource. “We see our clients through different phases of life and with each phase, there is a different need,” Beth tells us. “I enjoy working with clients to figure out how to address those needs.”
1. What do you think sets Craig Capital apart from other wealth management resources?
We focus on education, planning and portfolio management – not sales. We want our clients to understand what is happening in the financial world, and how we adjust to meet their needs in that world. While it's important to stay invested, it's not always ideal to “stay the course” – sometimes events dictate a change!
2. What are some of the benefits of receiving professional financial advice?
We are backed by Raymond James, who manages 1.09 trillion dollars in assets and provides a team of professionals who work diligently to offer our clients the best advice for their needs. There is more to financial advice than buying stocks or mutual funds. We share a client-first mentality.
3. When are the essential times for people to seek out professional financial advice?
There are moments in clients’ lives that we call "pain points." These are major life changes like divorce, receiving an inheritance, getting close to retirement and career changes, to name a few.
