It's important to understand the difference between a "Financial Adviser" and a "Financial Planner" (think "Security Monitor" vs. a "Security Guard"). Choosing a financial planner is probably the most important, long-term financial decision you will ever make. That is why it is so important that you choose a person who is a FIDUCIARY and has the experience and support staff to properly address your needs. Many advisers however seem focused primarily on their client’s assets. Unfortunately, that is only half of the picture. Who you are is the other half.
Areas of Focus
- The best way to fund your goals.
- How to create a steady stream of safe, secure, predictable and dependable income.
- Disinheriting the IRS (ever notice the last 3 letters in HEIRS are IRS).
- Getting maximum value from pensions and social programs.
- How best to distribute assets to survivors and/or philanthropic organizations.
- Providing for any special needs or other family members.
- Determining an appropriate safety to managed risk ratio.
