It is very important to find an expert in the field; someone whose experience you can lean on. A professional will rely on knowledge gained through education, through personal experience, and vicariously through situations they have worked through with their clients. This level of experience allows them to steer you in the right direction.
People often talk to their accountant or lawyer regarding financial matters. These professionals can frequently provide a good second opinion. For specific financial matters however, not all accountants or lawyers have the expertise necessary to deal with the questions asked. When you work with someone who truly specializes in financial planning, you ensure that dealing with this type of questions is their primary focus.
3 Things to Keep in Mind with Our Approach
- Our discussions are always focused on your needs and goals above any product. Your financial plan becomes the platform to which all advise stems from.
- Discussions include identification of the things that can go wrong with the strategy being recommended. Many situations are not straightforward and a number of alternatives need to be laid out with all information disclosed in a relatively easy to understand manner.
- We are always a full disclosure environment. You will know how we get paid as it relates to your plan before any of the items are implemented. This way your decision comes first!
From scene to scene, we find that the markets shift violently, tax laws change and become more complex, insurance needs change, and your personal circumstances change. You need to know how to react.
