Why Financial Planning?

First Meeting

Start With a Free Consultation

Our comprehensive financial planning services will simplify your life and enable you to rest easy, knowing that you’re on track for success. We’ve helped dozens of individuals and families plan for their future, avoid costly mistakes and thrive in their careers and retirement.

A Plan That Fits Your Life!

What are your life and retirement goals? We want to hear your story and work with you to make your dreams become realities. We just wanted to let you know that there is no time like the present to take charge of your financial future by making the necessary planning decisions today.

Let’s go ahead and get started with an initial get-to-know-you meeting. It’s free and you’re under no obligation.

Second Meeting

We Listen to Your Needs and Goals

This second meeting is all about us listening to what you want to accomplish as you explain to us how you envision your financial life moving forward. We take notes and start the ball rolling towards your needs and goals.

Third Meeting

Collection of Finanical Documents & Risk Assessment

After we have established what your goals and dreams are, we collect the necessary financal documents to see exactly where you are now so we can determing how to get you to your goal.

We also go through a risk assessment so we understand what your risk tolerance is towards obtaining your goals.

After our meeting, we will spend 10-16 hours studying your situation, making calculations and determining recommendations.

Forth Meeting

We Deliver Your Action Plan

We give you a one-page action plan outlining the steps for you to implement and steps for us to implement for you. We’ll help you get them all done!

We are on call whenever you need us throughout the year.

We also have a final follow-up meeting a year later to answer any questions you may have.

Why American Financial Planning?

A primary difference between us and our competition is that we offer you advice based on your ENTIRE financial situation including your life goals, target retirement age, tax implications, level of risk and other intangible factors. We believe this is the only way to give you the best advice for your unique situation.

We are also a small business so we don’t have a corporate headquarters pushing us to sell certain products to consumers or to push you in a certain direction.

Many financial advisers charge you a commission every time you move your money. Sometimes they will engage in the business of moving your money frequently so they can keep cashing in new commissions which loses you money!

This is actually an illegal activity called “churning,” but it happens more than we’d like. Our approach is that we choose to be “fee-only” in all that we do so that you keep more money in your wallet. We never charge a commission.

Our fee-only approach allows us to give you impartial advice because we don’t stand to profit by pushing you towards any type of commissioned product.

We serve as fiduciaries to all of our clients which means that we will always put your interests above our own and disclose to you in writing any conflicts of interest.

This should be the norm for all financial advisers, but unfortunately it is not.

Finally, we want to build a relationship with you. We believe that we can provide the best service to you by getting to know you and your dreams.

By offering you comprehensive services including tax preparation and financial planning, we are aware of your entire situation so when an unforeseen need or crisis arises, we’ll be there to help you weather the storm.

We’ve been in business 16 years and we’re not going anywhere. Often brokers/dealers and financial advisers who work for big banks and national wirehouses end up changing jobs when you need them and then the relationship you built is gone and the new employee doesn’t know anything about you.
