lifespring® Financial Planning
It all begins with lifespring®.
To add value, your financial advisor needs to understand what your aspirations and goals are. This starts with an in-depth analysis of your current financial position, an exploration of your key goals, your anticipated needs and future income, and a personal profile of your investment style.
This is all brought together to create a plan, your blueprint for building and maintaining a strong financial foundation. This plan is comprehensive – it includes cash management, investments, insurance† solutions, estate planning, business solutions – whatever is appropriate for you.
But it doesn’t stop there. Your financial advisor will continue to work with you on a regular basis to ensure those goals are met. He or she will assist you at every turn, making sure you’re well prepared for each of life’s milestones, major purchases, adventures or business decisions.
A financial plan can help you achieve more. Everything from buying your first home, opening a business, saving for kids’ education and planning your retirement, to building your wealth portfolio, managing your retirement income and estate planning. No matter what stage you’re at in life, lifespring financial planning will provide a roadmap and outline the steps to help you get where you want to be.
And as our client, it’s yours for the asking.
