One thing is for sure; these are changing times, and it can be hard to make sense of it all.  However, some things are certain. The direction you turn, the advice you receive and the financial decisions you make today will have a dramatic impact on the rest of your life.  These are significant decisions worthy of a second opinion.

Russ and Andy’s proven and successful strategies, coupled with their common values and distinct perspective produced by their breadth of experience, awards you a distinct advantage in these turbulent times.  With the advantage of two sets of eyes on your accounts and a combined experience of over 48 years in the financial services industry, Andrew Beshuk and Russell Daniel and the rest of the Providence team are here to serve you.

Join us.  Together we can find direction for you… the right direction.


R. Russell Daniel is a Financial Advisor with 29 years of experience in the financial services industry and enjoys reading about economics, politics and behavioral finance.  He is honored to be Jade and Dakota’s dad and likes singing in the church choir. He dabbles in photography, and loves to hunt, fish, canoe, or do anything outdoors. He is blessed to be married to his wife, best friend and health coach, Rachael with whom he shares a passion for health and nutrition.  They all live on a farm outside of Jefferson City, Missouri that they share with 5 dogs, a cat, and their heritage breed collection of cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, geese, and guineas.
