OUR PURPOSE

From Alfred J Harris, Founder:

Picron is currently in the early startup phase, though I have great ambitions for this company. I started Picron because I’ve repeatedly noticed a void in affordable financial services for those who do not have a high net worth
If you have a high net worth, you have access to every type of professional imaginable: financial advisers, CPAs, lawyers. Yet individuals with a more modest net worth will find their options fairly limited. 
The vision I have for Picron is to fill that market need in the long term. Through utilizing technology, keeping operating costs low, and working with third party service providers, Picron can provide those services online at a price point the working person can afford.  
I would like to see Picron become our client’s most trusted advisor. Clients can come to rely on Picron for their various financial needs from tax preparation and planning to personal financial planning.
