Seven key questions to ask when choosing a financial advisor:

With over 35 years experience as an independent financial advisor, I have no proprietary arrangements to sway my focus from keeping client’s interest first and foremost. This objective, unbiased platform can contribute significantly to helping clients achieve their financial dreams. What Makes Us Effective?

As the managing director of Kauffman Wealth Management, my credentials include:

  • Master’s in Financial Planning (MSFP)
  • Master’s in Business Administration (MBA)
  • Bachelor’s in Business Economics and Political Science (BA)

More important for my clients’ confidence is my Certified Financial Plannerdesignation.

I offer a full range of financial and advisory services that are custom tailored to my client’s needs. Typical clientele includes business owners and professionals, keys executives, people who are retired or contemplating retirement, affluent or suddenly affluent, single women making financial decisions, and families. My comprehensive planning services include:

  • Wealth preservation techniques
  • 401k and retirement plan investing
  • Income tax planning
  • Estate planning strategies
  • Tax advantaged benefits programs
  • Managing concentrated equity holdings, and others

In addition, I partner with your CPAs, attorneys, and third-party plan administrators (TPAs). When appropriate, we can recommend professionals in your community with whom we have existing relationships to deliver a seamless, integrated comprehensive service.

Having an established, collaborative, client-centric process can be as important as the solution itself. In collaberation with clients we follow our Fourfold Process which focuses on helping you achieve your priorities. Our approach encompasses;

  1. UNDERSTANDING YOU
  2. DESIGNING APPROPRIATE SOLUTIONS
  3. IMPLEMENTING YOUR CHOSEN STRATEGIES
  4. MANAGING YOUR PROGRESS

Top Priority: We take the time to know you and to see your dreams and your concerns through your eyes..

I believe building your wealth in the context of managing investment risk is vital to achieving your financial goals. Here is why: It helps to address your inflation risk, protect your assets and estate, preserve your legacy, and protect your family and your home. My role is to assist you in taking advantage of sound programs that can offer both growth potential and protection.
