“For many businesses and for the entire country, 2008 was fraught with adversity. With the financial markets in chaos, advisors have lost 20 percent or more of their revenue. We, however, have had a 10 percent increase and are working hard to maintain if not increase our success in 2009,” said Keats. “We continue to excel and grow by maintaining a strong focus on servicing our clients and spending more time and money on marketing and employee growth.”
KeatsConnelly originally opened its Florida location in Boca Raton in 2005. Quickly outgrowingd the space, KeatsConnelly expanded in 2006 and moved the office to West Palm Beach. Now in an office with more than 3,000 square feet in Boynton Beach, the team is ready to expand further while offering its clients a more central location. KeatsConnelly also has an executive suite in Naples to meet with clients, which is located at 5100 Tamiami Trail North, Suite 106. The firm is also looking to expand internationally by opening a Canadian office. KeatsConnelly sees opportunity in duplicating its formula for cross-border planning and starting a branch of the firm for clients who travel between the US and U.K. borders too.
KeatsConnelly is an award-winning wealth management firm with offices in Arizona, Florida and Michigan that assists Canadians and Americans in realizing their dreams of a cross-border lifestyle. The firm’s fee-only compensation model enables the company to maintain its philosophy of promoting clients’ best interests, at all times, while avoiding any potential conflict of interest with commissions.

About The Border Guide
The Border Guide is written for both Canadians and Americans, regardless of which direction they may be moving or investing across the 49th parallel, and is a particularly great resource for: Canadians who are considering some form of permanent or seasonal residency in the United States; Canadians who have resided in the United States for employment and are contemplating returning to Canada; US citizens living in, investing in or moving to Canada; US citizens married to Canadians and vice versa. The book is written to help its readers:
- Avoid getting caught by fluctuations in Canadian currency;
- Qualify for old-age and social security benefits on both sides of the border;
- Get the best from both the Canadian and US medical systems — without the disadvantages of either;
- Buy a retirement home and deduct the mortgage interest from your Canadian tax return;
- Receive your Canadian pensions in the US — almost tax-free;
- Make US-based investments that are exempt from US income tax and filing requirements;
- Use the new US–Canada Tax Treaty to receive the equivalent of an unlimited capital gains exemption; and
- Alleviate your tax burden when you return to Canada after an extended stay in the United States.
