The Value of a Fiduciary as Your Financial Partner
Many people hesitate to call a professional financial planner because they are concerned about cost. This is certainly understandable given the many financial obligations we all have. But a better question might be this: What will it cost you to go without professional advice?
In the age of the Internet and DIY mentality, many are tempted to deal with personal finance issues on their own.
But you don’t know what you don’t know. We live in complex times and actions in one area have long-term consequences in other areas like taxes, retirement and credit. Too often decisions are made that have far-reaching consequences – when to choose Social Security, how to structure a pension, and optimal ways to fund college, just to name a few.
In my practice you get more than investment advice because there is more to financial planning than choosing investments.
What you are paying for is access to a trained, certified, licensed, bonded, insured and experienced professional – one with more than twenty-five years of practical experience with advanced and specialized continuing education with access to multiple tools designed to provide you with the answers you need.
You receive objective advice not tied to the sale of any financial, insurance, or investment product.
