Advisers hear Parr presentation

Christopher P. Parr, vice president and principal of Financial Advantage Inc., a Columbia firm, spoke last quarter about advising retired clients to the Washington study group of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors.

Parr, a certified financial planner, emphasized the need to focus on absolute returns for retired clients, rather than rate of return relative to the market.

A resident of River Hill village in Columbia, Parr has been listed five times by Worth Magazine as one of the nation's best financial advisers.
