A Team Approach
We believe that the complexity of financial, business and estate planning requires a coordinated effort among our clients’ accounting and legal advisors to ensure that plans are professionally orchestrated, integrated and implemented. In the process of working with us, you will soon learn that developing strategic partnerships with other professionals is a key part of our philosophy and we go out of our way to refer qualified clients to our strategic partners when appropriate.
Review and analysis of life insurance contracts, illustrations and pricing decisions
Evaluation of insurance company strength and performance
Expert testimony and professional support for litigation involving life insurance
Identification of life settlement options and their probable costs
Second opinion underwriting consulting to help avoid the risk of being denied coverage or the surprise of receiving a premium offer significantly higher than planned
Private briefings, CPE and CLE for accountants and attorneys on insurance issues to assist with advisor due diligence
An Independent Technical Resource
Our strategic partnerships with other advisors may also involve serving as an independent and confidential resource to address your clients’ financial planning needs. Services can be provided behind the scenes through your firm or via direct client interface – on a case-by-case basis. Simply put, our goal is to add to your credibility – through technical intelligence and comprehensive resources – delivered objectively, promptly and thoroughly.
Many of our planning strategies include tax-sensitive issues. As a result, we place high importance on coordinating our efforts with tax advisors to provide insight into areas impacting a client’s retirement, financial, business and estate planning issues. Our communication and coordination with CPAs are enhanced by the presence on our professional staff of Tom Moore, who is a CPA with more than 20 years of financial planning experience, and Mike Berlier, a CPA with over 30 years of experience .
Through our years of partnering with CPAs, we understand the importance of objectivity, confidentiality, transparency and competency for the engagement in our working relationship. As a result, we are regularly called upon by CPAs to provide resources and technical support. At the same time, our practice is to proactively involve tax advisors in our process of developing and implementing planning strategies for clients in areas such as:
- Personal and Business Income Tax Planning
- Sale or Purchase of a Closely-Held Business
- Business Succession Planning
- Estate Tax Planning
- Life Insurance Tax Issues
