I am too busy!  Your Free Consultation could be the most valuable time of your whole life!  We are Financial Strategists, we do all the work.  One strategy alone could increase your assets by over $100,000.  Another strategy could decrease your debt by $100,000 or more.  The third strategy could increase your income by $100,000 or more.  The fourth strategy could decrease taxes by $100,000 or more.  One strategy upon another multiplied out over a lifetime is what you will need just to maintain your standard of living, and there are over 50 of these strategies I have ready for you.

How Much Does It Cost?  A very small percentage of the benefit you receive.  Not only does integrated planning pay for its self through decreased taxes, avoiding potential losses, increased income, etc., it allows you to regain your life by developing a plan that sets you free to live the life you love.  Your Lead Advisor will layer strategies in Personal Financial Planning, Professional and Business Planning. Common results include preserving or creating an extra $100,000+ that you would not have otherwise had.  We are strategists who combine reduced taxes, greater rates of growth and legal strategies to keep money in your pocket.  If you could save an extra $100,000 in income taxes, how much is that worth to you?  How much would you pay to put an extra $1,000,000 in the bank?

How are you Compensated?  Advisor compensation types range from 1. free on evaluations and commission based financial solutions 2. professional hourly rates 3. a percent of assets managed and 4. a shareholder stake in a business entity.  For instance, at the highest level of service if you have cash, investments, homes, etc. totaling $1,200,000 the retainer fee is $12,000 for a one-year consulting engagement whereby numerous professionals evaluate your affairs continuously.  The client is best served when their advisor is put on retainer to help with financial management – not just financial planning or giving financial advice.  The retainer arrangement allows you to have your assets, debt, income and expenses managed and communicated to you regularly.  This puts the advisor on the same side of the fence as you.  The advisor has a stake in helping you acquire assets to support your life style.  When compensation is based on the total value of assets, it is in the advisor’s best interest to increase the size of the estate.  Instead of just a commission for a sale, the advisor is paid a fee for service.

Will You Be There For Me When I Need You?

Frankly, as the advisors business grows under the product sales oriented model where the advisor must always be looking for the next sale, the advisor can have trouble paying attention to his very best clients.  The advisor wants to be paid for the service and value he provides, not just, for what he sells today.  When the advisor see’s planning properly, they make better recommendations, attract better clients and never really have to ask for the sale.  At the highest level of advisory, separate fees for planning and management are quite common.  By putting a price tag on the financial planning service, the advisor actually assigns a specific value and the client avoids the old “you get what you pay for”.

Various payment options are available: Credit Card Acceptance, One Time Payment, Initial Retainer with Monthly Payments, retainer with commission offset, etc.
