"Wealth management" refers to a comprehensive planning process integrating tax planning, estate planning, and investment management – it’s easy to define, but hard to accomplish.
Thirty years of experience have demonstrated to me an almost universal challenge faced by people trying to accomplish real wealth management and make the best financial arrangements for their families.
Advisors provide guidance in their respective areas of expertise. The CPA prepares tax returns and tries to make the best of last year’s income and expenses. The attorney prepares legal documents directing the distribution of the estate. The financial advisor provides investment advice, retirement planning, etc. Each advisor is in his own “silo” and typically has limited or no knowledge of what the others are doing. But these three areas of financial life, tax planning, estate planning, and investment management, are interrelated and need to be coordinated in order to get the best results.
There should be an overall plan, a big picture, that coordinates the efforts of a family’s advisors. Despite the best intentions of all concerned, for many clients the big picture has never been painted, and the various individual plans are not only not coordinated but often are at odds, which can lead to problems for the client and family.
That is the problem. The solution is to bring the three advisors under one roof – a “one-stop” solution providing truly integrated wealth management.
At Ryan Wealth Management, we are that one-stop shop for our clients, offering professional level tax planning and preparation, estate planning, and investment management.
I have been fortunate to have worked with thousands of families to help them reach their financial goals. Experience, along with credentials including CPA, CFP (Certified Financial Planner), CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and attorney, give me rare perspective as a financial advisor and that are invaluable in creating solutions for clients.
Let the Ryan Wealth Management team, me, my co-advisors, and our client services staff, help you identify clarify your financial “big picture”, and trust us to keep you on course to reach your goals.
