Wondering What It Means To Be A Planning First Firm?
We know that as a high earning young professional with a lot going on financial planning can feel overwhelming, taxing and downright difficult to think about!
To operate at a true-fiduciary level, we designed a process that is 100% free from the conflicts of interest you might experience with other advisors who are only interested in managing your money (and as soon as possible!).
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.

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
