Typical Needs of People Who Use This Service
INDIVIDUALS / Professionals / Retirees:
“I have a number of fundamental questions about whether I am financially ‘on track’ to meet my short, intermediate, and long-term financial and life goals. Given the complexities of my life and the sheer number of potential saving and investing paths, I am looking for a roadmap to help me reach my goals.”
“I want to work with informed experts who really know their business. I am willing to work with specialized tax, legal, or trust experts, as required. However, I want to establish a relationship with a single individual who has a holistic view into all components of our financial relationship, who knows when to access specialized resources, and who can recommend trusted best-of-breed support.”
“I may need to save for the purchase of a home, fund my children’s education, determine when I can retire or change careers, secure my legacy to future generations, or figure out how much my current savings and benefit plans will provide me at retirement. In any case, I need a personalized blueprint that provides guidance on getting and staying on track.”
“Most importantly, guide me on what I can do to reduce these risks and protect myself / family, income/assets from an uncertain and increasingly volatile world, where I (and not my employer or the government) am responsible for my financial future.”
“This process can be a confusing and daunting task. Investing, tax, estate, and legal questions all play a factor in the decisions I make and the actions I take. Provide me with a coordinated plan that offers a broad scope of advice across these areas and insight on how these factors affect each other. Bring it all together to make sure every plan component is coordinated to ensure I am staying on track to achieve my future financial goals.”
TRANSITIONING BUSINESS OWNERS:
“I have invested a tremendous amount of time and resources into building my business. As I prepare for a transition to the next phase of my life, I need a personalized plan that identifies the optimal approaches to help me turn the value of my business into the necessary assets and cash flows to fund my retirement.”
“I realize that there are many variables that need to be considered in making this once-in-a-lifetime decision. Given the complexities and number of options I should consider, I am not only looking for the financial guidance to help me create and execute a plan, but expertise on the transaction itself. Help me determine the optimal buyer and how the ownership should be structured to create the most efficient transition. Given the investing, tax, legal, and estate planning components of this transition, I need a coordinated effort that offers a broad scope of advice across all of these areas. In the end, I need to be assured that my decisions will be in my best interests, as well as the best interests of my heirs and successors.”
New Business Owners:
“I am risking a lot in establishing my new business, and I am very confident that I will succeed. I understand my markets, my products and services, and what my customer wants. As I embark on this journey, I will need a financial roadmap to guide me on the best approaches to grow my firm so that it provides short- and long-term financial value to me.”
“I am looking for advice in setting up my business so that I can best capitalize on its growth for my current and future needs. Given the complexities and number of options I should consider, I am not only looking for guidance to help me create and execute an integrated plan, but also expertise on how to take a strategic approach. I need assistance in areas such as identifying credit and funding options, assessing cash management sources, choosing products that protect my income in case of a life-altering event, effectively planning for and funding my retirement, and choosing the right package of health, welfare, and retirement benefits to attract and retain the best possible employees. Given the investing, tax, legal, and estate planning components, I need a coordinated effort and points of view that offer a broad scope of advice across all of these areas.”
“Bringing it all together to make sure that all plan components are coordinated is the key to success. I need to be assured that my decisions will help me to accelerate the short, intermediate, and long-term growth of my business. ”
“I have inherited significant assets and, as a result, I have a number of fundamental questions about the best approaches I should consider to ensure that those assets will allow me to live the life I desire. In the wake of this important event, I require a financial plan that will first help me to identify my life goals and then to help me to structure my portfolios so that it supports the lifestyle I (and my family) choose.”
“Given the complexities that this event generates and the sheer number of potential investing paths I can take, I am also looking for a roadmap to help me manage all elements of my inheritance effectively. These elements can range from tax and estate planning to wealth transfer and forming a foundation to build a legacy after I am gone.”
“This process can be a confusing and daunting one. Investing, tax, estate, and legal questions all play a factor in the decisions I make and the actions I take. So providing a coordinated plan and a point of view that offers a broad scope of advice across these areas, and your insight on how these factors affect each other and the whole, is critical. Bringing it all together to make sure that all plan components are coordinated is the key to success.”
