Making Good Decisions
With the massive amount of information available about the subject of "financial well-being", it can be overwhelming to decide what is right for YOU. The good news is that is does not need to be that way. Finding the right Wealth Management expert to partner with can make the process comfortable, clear and empowering.
The reality is that managing wealth today can be a complex, time consuming process that requires constant learning and coordination of all of the areas of your financial life. It usually requires professionals such as:
- Wealth Manager - for 'global' planning, investment management and coordination of advisory team
- CPA - for tax planning and reporting
- Insurance Specialists (Property & Casualty, Life, Long Term Care) - for risk mitigation
- Estate Planning Attorney - for asset protection and estate tax management
- Real Estate Expert - for advice on buy, hold and sell decisions
- Certified Mortgage Planner - For advice on optimal mortgage debt structure and terms
Each one of these professionals plays an important role when it comes to your financial 'health', but they cannot do their best work in a "bubble". Their efforts need to be aligned and coordinated (Click on Advisor Integration tab for more detailed description).
