Investing Services that Solve Problems Facing Affluent Investors

Here are some problems you might be able to relate to as an individual investor with high or ultra-high net worth:

  • Your income goes up but your net worth isn’t changing
  • You’ve hit retirement and don’t know how much money to withdraw each month so you can enjoy your freedom without a huge tax bite
  • You’ve received a list of offerings from life insurance companies and don’t know which program is the best choice – if any
  • A friend wants you to go in on some hedge funds, but your spouse doesn’t trust the plan
  • You read media stories saying that investing in more bonds as you get into retirement is smart, but you don’t feel like you have the information or expertise to really know how to proceed
  • You want to travel to places like French Polynesia, Singapore, and South Africa, but aren’t sure how to properly fund it without upending your retirement planning
  • You are tired of tax increases and don’t have time to research tax planning businesses but don’t want to resort to using tax shelters like the Cayman Islands

Cookie cutter investment products and financial services from big banks and brokerage firms, and even some of our peers, have nothing to offer for these types of scenarios for affluent individuals. Why?

Because this kind of focus from a financial advisor takes too much effort and time. This is why our wealth managers collectively accept only 17 new clients each year. Wealth management is a relationship.

As a person of wealth, you deserve better than to fumble around for solutions that a typical advisor cannot provide.

You deserve nothing less than fully custom private wealth management service and financial planning advice from financial advisors you can trust.

The Costs of Leaving Your Investments Where They Are

Much can go wrong if you don’t do something to change your investing situation. Why? Because there are too many malevolent forces, institutions, and realities of this world outside your control that seek to do you harm, financially or otherwise.

What Can Go Wrong

Picture this:

What if a parent contracts Alzheimer’s disease two years before you plan to retire?

What if a family member marries poorly, and starts hemorrhaging wealth due to their spouse or spouse’s family?

What if a wealth tax gets approved, or the highest income tax bracket shifts up to 70%?

What if shifting economic realities cause your business value to multiply by ten, and you sell it for a nine-figure windfall?

That last example isn’t a malevolent force, but the reality of a sudden infusion of wealth raises new questions about your future and requires a fresh approach to your financial plan from your advisor.

How Will You Respond?

Do you have a plan for how to respond when these sorts of events happen in your life? What about a series of events all at once, like Covid 19 plus a failed business plus a family crisis?

Do you have access to unconflicted, expert, fiduciary, trusted financial advice from a wealth manager or financial advisor?

Does that financial advisor or wealth manager offer more financial services than mere investment management, basic knowledge, and  advice?

Leaving your investments alone and hoping everything just turns out alright is a risky strategy. Things will not go as planned. Tax laws will change. You will need to adjust your investment strategy the closer you get to retirement. Many times.

This is why our founding wealth managers baked the anticipation for these events into the fabric of our approach to investment management.

We don’t wait to react to personal and world events. We count on it.

How does it feel to engage with a wealth management strategy that is designed  from this perspective? The best way to find out is to take a chance and talk to a wealth manager.

You have an opportunity today to take a different path. A path where obligations fade, work takes a back seat, and money ceases to be on your mind.

What to Expect from Our Wealth Management Advisor Services

Affluent investors and individuals have very different financial needs from typical investors, and our wealth management tools and services have been carefully developed to meet those needs in ways that thrill and delight our clients. What makes our financial services thrilling and delighting?

If you’re like most people, one of your greatest desires is simply to not have to worry.

For example, it’s better to have someone else take care of your yard, car maintenance, and housecleaning. Likewise, it would be great if you could just entrust all your investments and accounts to a wealth manager or financial advisor. Then, you can rest easy, knowing that a trusted, expert professional is handling all aspects of your financial planning according to your desires and the investment results you want.

That’s what Pillar Wealth Management means by ‘financial serenity.’

Managing finances and investments takes time. For people with great wealth, it takes even more time. You want that time back. You want to focus your mind on other matters. Only a trusted, expert, fiduciary wealth manager can deliver the optimized performance you need without putting your investments at high risk.

This is what Pillar Wealth Management delivers for all our clients.

Personalized Customer Services – Expect Nothing Less

When you reach out to Pillar Wealth Management, you talk to the experts. Our wealth managers answer their phones and reply to their emails – always within a day if for some reason you don’t reach us your first try.

We send consistent reports and give you online access to your portfolio and other information. But you need much more support than that if your money is going to achieve all the goals you’ve set for it.

Why Does Customized Planning Matter?

Wealth protection is as important – if not more so – than wealth creation. Acquiring wealth does little good if you lose half of the money ten years later because of poor planning services. Here are 4 questions to help reveal why customized financial planning is the secret to wealth protection.

Q1: Why is it an advantage to use a customized wealth management plan?

Every person has different needs, worries, desires, priorities, and financial realities. You cannot secure the future you want with a cookie-cutter wealth management plan, no matter who your advisor or wealth manager is.

We cannot emphasize enough the difference between how it feels to have truly customized financial planning for your investments and all your other accounts and financial assets, compared to the usual types of investment management services.

Q2: What is the goal of customized planning?

The goal is financial security. The goal is to optimize your portfolio and investment performance. The path to achieving this is to balance risk management with growth.

Q3: How does Pillar optimize my investment performance?

Pillar doesn’t employ the traditional asset allocation buckets using investment strategies like ‘aggressive growth’ and ‘moderate’ and ‘conservative’. We do nothing even remotely close to that.

Our process, which is proprietary, innovative, and driven by over 100 years of market performance data, presents you with an array of recommendations for investment management and financial strategies. The key to optimized investing is in how you measure it.

Q4: How do we measure growth?

Our strategy measures your results based on the achievement of your goals and desired lifestyle outcomes, not an arbitrary percentage of growth or annual performance.

In other words, are you on track to live your life how you want? Are your family members positioned for long term security, through and beyond retirement? Are all your short and long term financial life needs being met? If so, then your investments are performing successfully and your plan is working.

Preparation is how you win the investing war!

You are smart enough to know you cannot know it all, no matter how sophisticated you are about business, investments, and the financial industry. Besides, you have other things that demand your time and attention. You understand the importance of surrounding yourself with top minds and talent, who use the most current information about the markets to manage your accounts.

You know the value of working with a financial advisor or wealth manager who can provide good financial services in areas where you need expertise.

Example: Financial Lessons from the Past

On Black Monday, October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 23 percent. To this day, this remains the largest one-day loss in U.S. stock market history. Our wealth managers were already managing client accounts and investments on that fateful Monday, and the crash left a significant impression on us. Too many high net worth individuals and investors lost millions of dollars. They vowed not to make the same mistakes again.

But in our experience, we still see a number of the same mistakes being made by advisors and wealth managers around the world and in the U.S.

No one knows when the next financial disaster will happen. If you think back to previous catastrophes and even the recent Covid 19 recession, the so-called expert advisors love to use grand proclamations about uncharted waters, and that we’ve never seen anything like this in the past and never will again.

Don’t listen to that. Make no mistake: The surprises will come again.

Financial security is found in preparation and planning. Plan for the unknown future. Upheaval will come, in capital markets, in your business, in your family – anywhere. Your money and financial life are never secure until you have a plan in place that makes it so. You can do that work yourself, or have a wealth manager or financial advisor do it.

Ask yourself:

  • Do I have enough money in my accounts to retire comfortably?
  • Who will I trust to manage my money when my spouse passes away?
  • How will I properly invest my large cash inflow from inheritance, real estate, or large stock/options sale?
  • How do I financially plan for my children’s and grandchildren’s educations, my philanthropy plans, my travel plans, and other interests?
  • How will divorce impact my standard of living?

Since no experts can predict when the next personal or market crisis will occur, your goal should be to protect yourself and your investments from such a risk, using the services of an expert, trusted advisor or wealth manager.
