Is There Really a Barry Fox?

Thank you for your interest in our services. Many clients ask, “Is there really a Barry Fox?” Of course there is. I know that most financial aid planners use generic corporate names, but for me it is a matter of pride that my name is on the door, on every piece of stationery; it’s the first thing you hear when you are on the phone.
