Josh R. Carter
Throughout his career, Josh Carter has demonstrated his commitment to and firm belief in goals-based financial planning and wealth management, which is needed for representatives who work for DECU Investment & Retirement Services. This means that they do not take a product-centric approach when they give advice. Rather, they strive to uphold a fiduciary standard, which means they make recommendations only when they are confident that they understand your current situation, goals, aspirations and values; and when they are equally confident that their recommendations are in your best interests. Josh is committed to putting DECU members’ interests ahead of his own, which is the definition of a fiduciary.
