Fee-only financial planning is the heart of our business because in the more than 30 years since our founding we’ve learned that creating and sticking to a comprehensive financial plan is the key to reaching lifelong financial goals.
However, a financial plan must be designed only after understanding the many facets of a client’s financial life—goals and objectives, savings and assets, and unique life circumstances. We uncover these details during the financial planning process, which consists of a series of meetings where we learn all about you and design a plan that is unique to you and your family’s needs. Only after assessing a client’s entire financial situation do we recommend pertinent financial planning strategies that focus on creating and protecting wealth; managing risk, debt and taxation; and planning your estate after you pass on.
Every client is different and your plan should be too. Your unique risk appetite, savings needs, charitable goals, and life expectancies all influence your financial plan. By focusing on YOU and your unique needs, we can better help you reach your financial goals
