Financial Advisors at work

What is a Financial Advisor?

 A financial advisor is a very broad term, but generally, it applies to someone who helps guide another person’s finances with a set goal, such as retirement or paying for a child’s college tuition. It can also include investment advice, life, home, and auto insurance, income tax preparation, and legacy planning. We pride ourselves on being comprehensive financial planners since we will look at every aspect of our client’s financial situation before we make recommendations. 

Who Needs a Financial Advisor?

We feel that it is a common misconception that financial advisors service primarily wealthy people with large, diverse investment portfolios. While someone with a broad investment strategy and many assets is a great fit for a financial advisor’s services, just about any person can benefit from a sound money management plan. Good advice applies the same to the middle class as it does to the mega-rich, after all.

Many millionaires have accumulated their wealth due to long-term saving and investing. Everyone starts somewhere, so we understand that those who are just starting to deserve our help equally to those who have already lived through their accumulation years. Financial literacy is not a common school subject in the United States, so we strive to educate our clients regardless of their background or current situation. We have a wealth of knowledge, and we will share it with anyone who is willing to listen.
