Comprehensive Financial Planning
We have found that without a plan that is custom built, specific and easy to understand, most successful individuals will not achieve their maximum potential over the course of a lifetime. Many of our most successful relationships with clients began with a comprehensive financial plan. It has been our experience that after this initial stage of our work, systemic change can begin to take hold in the lives of our clients. We share in the responsibility to keep the plan up to date. We realize there will be changes in your assets, family status, business status, in the economy and tax law that will dictate revisions.

Business owner planning is very different than personal financial planning, and it brings a whole new set of financial opportunities for effective change. This change can drive the business, the owners, and their families to new levels of success.
We begin by understanding the keys to the business owner’s success and what is important to them going forward. In most cases we find that the business issues are intertwined with personal financial planning decisions. We examine how these decisions influence each other and help determine the best course of action.
Most people spend their lives working hard, sacrificing and planning for the day they can declare financial independence. The challenge is that in today’s world, pensions have become a thing of the past, economic conditions constantly change, the stock market is volatile, social security is inadequate and medical expenses are skyrocketing.
Just reading about these challenges can be overwhelming. We help our clients cut through the clutter, determine what is important and create an actionable plan. We then review the plan on a regular basis to adjust for changes in their lives and the world around them.
Excalibur Financial Services approaches estate planning as an integrated process. Many people think having a will means their estate plan is complete. Nothing can be further from the truth. Our firm addresses the many different types of wills, the thousands of different types of trusts, the titling of assets, liability protection, business continuity, terminal illness, incompetency, and protection from creditors and predators.
Specifically, we work with families facing complex financial, estate and business succession decisions. We work alongside your existing advisors and offer proprietary financial modeling tailored to your particular needs. Many of our areas premier law firms and accountants rely on our ability to paint a clear and simple picture of the short and long-term consequences of these financial decisions.
We are licensed with over one hundred insurance companies. When one of our clients asks us to acquire some insurance for them, we are able to shop the market on their behalf. This allows us to recommend the most competitive policy for their needs.
Structure is equally important as cost efficiency. We find many clients have good legal documents but their life policies are not coordinated. Life insurance is generally income tax free but not estate tax free under §2042. We can structure your policies to be totally tax free.
Life insurance is used for a variety of reasons: family income, business, key man, buy/sell, cover debt and estate tax. As we discuss your plan, we can determine if you have any of these needs.
