You Deserve To Understand What’s Happening With Your Money.

 

Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.

At White Ember, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.

1

QUESTION

What are you going to do with my money?

First, we’ll get to know you and what you value most. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to achieve those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we’ll allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.

QUESTION

Can you handle the complexity of my situation?

We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While we’ve helped thousands of families navigate complex financial needs, each family gets a personalized allocation strategy to help guide them through life’s major decisions.

QUESTION

How can you make my life easier?

As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your life. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – providing as much or as little information as you’d like.

Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at White Ember we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.

How to Maximize Your Giving with a ...

Many of us have memories of family giving practices. For some, it was that dime from your allowance that your parents said goes to the church. For others, it was the yearly (or more often) volunteering trip to help out at the local mission/soup kitchen. Or it might have been a policy of giving one toy to Goodwill for every new one you received as a gift.
