Why Use A Local, Independent Financial Advisor?





1. Accessibility & Convenience

Even simple tasks can become a hassle when your advisor lives out of state. Everyday activities like making additional deposits, processing withdrawals, or getting emergency cash are more complicated because documents have to be mailed back and forth.

2. Communication

Studies have shown that many people feel they do not have adequate contact with their financial advisor. This could become more troublesome when the client moves out of state and contact becomes even more difficult.

3. Registration

Each state has unique registration requirements that can restrict an out-of-state advisor from processing transactions that are in the client’s best interests. These registrations are often costly and time consuming

4. Specialization

Retirees face unique challenges. Most advisors in the country help pre-retirees accumulate wealth. However, a local advisor that specializes in working with retirees will have a better understanding of what it takes to make sure you don’t run out of money in retirement. Many local advisors also specialize in legacy planning, another important aspect of planning for retirement

5. Community Involvement

As a local independent advising firm, Estate & Retirement Resources hosts educational and entertaining events that can give you an opportunity to meet other retirees with similar interests. In the past, these events included golf tournaments, wine tastings, polo matches, dances, and more.

6. Related Services

Financial planning, tax preparation, and legal services are interrelated. This is why it is important for your financial advisor, CPA, and attorney to share information with ease. It becomes a seamless process when all three are in the same area.
