“There were a lot of reasons why we chose to partner with Carson,” explains Robert Karn. “But one of the biggest reasons was the industry-leading technology available to us as Carson Wealth and what that will enable us to do for our clients. These tools will help streamline our clients’ digital experience, making it easier for them to visualize their financial plan, access their investments and communicate with our team.”

Robert Karn has been helping high-net-worth families and businesses discover and plan for their financial goals for nearly 40 years. Karn began his career in financial services when he and wealth advisor, Jim Couzens opened Karn Couzens & Associates in 1987.

“Bob and Jeffrey have built a tremendous multigenerational family business, dedicated to serving the greater Hartford area,” said Ron Carson, founder and CEO of Carson Group. “As part of the Carson Wealth team, they have access to resources to secure their firm’s legacy and provide so much more for their clients – comprehensive financial planning, trust services, insurance solutions, tax strategy and a dedicated investment management team.”

“Carson’s extensive network gives us a succession plan that supports our existing team and reinforces the work we’re committed to doing for our clients,” added Karn. “We believe we are now even better positioned to look toward the future with renewed confidence.”
