“It is fair to say in my experience, the vast majority of clients want a complete and integrated solution for their financial planning needs but few financial advisers provide this or are particularly interested in it. This is where I have found Fitzpatricks to be different.
It’s not possible to build an integrated financial plan without having a clear view of the right context for a client which requires aligning their circumstances to their long term personal goals before any step is made to invest capital or structure their affairs.
As the saying goes – if you don’t know where you’re going any road will get you there – which in wealth management terms can lead to poor or ad hoc decision making without understanding the risks being taken with a client’s long term goals. And risks there are plenty – in asset protection, inappropriate investment decisions, illness or accident, estate and succession planning or inefficient structuring for tax or administrative purposes.
For the clients I have referred Fitzpatricks I have seen them assist clients develop their strategic plan and then implement their plans long term for the future.”
