We provide comprehensive financial planning services, customized to the needs of our clients. We specialize in retirement accumulation and distribution strategies, estate and tax planning, business continuation planning, and financial life planning. What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? First, we are process-oriented rather than product-oriented. We spend a significant amount of time in the planning stage to understand our clients needs and objectives. Each client is unique and therefore requires a customized plan that is designed around their particular circumstances. We continually review our clients progress and make necessary adjustments as circumstances change throughout their lives.Because we are independent, our clients are free to choose who they use to implement their financial strategies. Many clients decide to go through us due to the quality and depth of our financial resources, but we leave that decision up to them. What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? We do not look at a clients financial future by simply reviewing their income and net worth. We begin every clients financial plan with a discussion of their core values. In the end, its not about their money its about making their money work to accomplish their dreams and objectives.Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: Prior to entering the financial advisory business, Henry Reed oversaw the financial affairs of development partnerships in the Vail Valley and Lake Tahoe areas.
