Why We Are Different “For over 20 years, we’ve been helping successful people create, preserve and transfer wealth more effectively.” -Lei Wang, CFP®, CFS, CRPC Protecting What You’ve Built As a high net worth individual, your financial planning needs are complex. Successful people usually need more help in three key areas:Asset Protection Risk Management Tax ReductionHowever most financial advisors are generalists and are not necessarily ready to focus on these important areas.We’re different because we work exclusively with successful business owners and professionals whose needs are more complex than most. We provide the customized financial planning, investment management and innovative strategies you need to protect your assets and keep more of what you earn, now and in the future. The Right Investments Can Do More for You When you’re already successful, protecting what you built should be paramount. You should not be taking excess risk.Unfortunately many financial advisors simply do the same things for most people, with small adjustments. We frequently see high net worth people in investments that carry more risk than they need. Instead, you have the opportunity to generate return in a much safer way, and that’s through tax efficiency. At the same time we can help protect your assets. Yes, the tax code is complex. Many financial professionals shy away from complex strategies but, properly executed, these strategies can provide you with substantial benefits:Captive insurance often can be appropriate to shelter assets and pass them along in a tax-advantaged mannerVarious types of trusts can help you avoid state and local tax limitations (SALT) as well as shelter assetsCreative use of insurance and annuities when appropriate can help you cost-effectively transfer risk and reduce future tax liabilityOur team at Lincoln Financial Advisors has over 20 years of experience implementing these types of structures for our clients as part of an overall financial plan.
