Wondering What It Means To Be A Planning First Firm?
We know that as a high earning mid-career professional with a lot going on, financial planning can feel overwhelming, taxing and downright difficult to think about! We are here to change that...and that starts by understanding EXACTLY what you can expect from day 1.
We believe that designing an objective, advice-driven financial plan based on your questions, priorities & future goals is the ONLY way to begin a true-fiduciary relationship.
That’s why we use a planning first approach and have developed our Financial Life Plan® to help you determine where you are now, where you want to be and how to get there. Once you've completed your FLP® you are under no obligation to work with our firm.
This initial planning process, which takes 7-8 weeks, provides you with a comprehensive look at your current financial health & will provide you with a forward looking financial roadmap....A radically different experience from other advisors who are only interested in managing your money (and as soon as possible!).

Why are we a "Planning First" firm?
Generally I won’t suggest investment options without performing a financial analysis. I mean, I’m just not good enough to provide credible advice without seeing the entire financial picture and understanding the overlapping and sometimes competing client goals. So I educate first, then I plan, and then if we come to an agreement, I will advise and provide investment services. -Lance Drucker, CLU ChFC
