Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services is a preeminent group of financial planners within Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation who have prodigious experience in wealth management, business continuity, and sophisticated wealth transfer strategies.
Our planning process revolves around you and your family's vision and philosophy. We begin by identifying your needs and objectives. We then analyze and evaluate the particulars of your current financial situation. Finally, we provide you with the comprehensive advice you need to help you make informed decisions that can secure your present and compose a legacy for the future.
Because we work exclusively with high net worth families, we have developed a thorough understanding of the unique problems and opportunities that you may confront. This translates into our time-tested ability to pursue measurable and meaningful results for you, your business, and ultimately, your family.
But we don't stop there. Financial planners in Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services have access to the best ideas our company offers, and provide you with confidential, highly customized, personal service.
Your financial planner collaborates with our Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services members and our advanced planning team to develop not only strategies, but also tactical solutions that help you achieve your unique goals. This team-level approach to your financial plan will holistically address the complexities of your personal situation. During the process, you will have the opportunity to interact with these professionals via video conference as well as in-person in one of our regional offices. You can rest assured that your issues are being resolved by a qualified, credentialed, and competent group of professionals.
As a successful person, you are - by nature - a person of action. At Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services, we believe that a plan, in and of itself, has no power or force without actions you can implement to help improve your situation as appropriate to achieve your goals. Our orientation toward action drives us to deliver a financial plan that allows you to guide your fate, both today and in the future.
As the client of a Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services planner, you are special to us. We value your business and will cater to your needs and requests in a manner that earns your respect. You can count on us to drive the process at a pace that is appropriate for you. Our relationship will evolve, as will your plan, but you will always be treated to a timely, concierge-level experience - from complex issue to minute detail.
Serve First Philosophy
Lincoln's philosophy - Serve First, Last and AlwaysSM - drives the way we do business. We believe in providing our clients with clarity and solutions to help meet their needs. We believe that long-term relationships are more important than short-term gains, and will never sacrifice the former for the latter. Conviction in what we do; the courage to help our clients to take action; competency based on continuing education and training; coordination of national resources on terms that benefit each client; and communication that builds understanding and trust - these are the key qualities of "Serve First." And these are the commitments we make to each of our clients.
The initial stages of our process may last two - eight months, depending on the complexity of your personal situation, but many clients appreciate the value we add and continue our partnership with their families for generations. Here is a look at the composition of our process.
1. Review Current StrategiesWe discuss opportunities you may have missed due to years of nonintegrated advice. This initial exchange of information offers insight into how our work is substantially different from your current plan.
2. Qualify ValueYou see that our integrated team approach delivers unique estate, business succession, investment planning, and tax reduction strategies. Our relationship begins with the knowledge that there is essential work to be done.
3. Understand Your Situation
We work together to gain a thorough understanding of your family's financial philosophy. Knowing your specific situation and objectives allows us to explore opportunities not previously considered.
4. Assess Opportunities
The foundation of your plan begins to take form. Your personal goals and financial situation are confirmed.
5. Chart Your Course
Sophisticated strategies are outlined in plain English. These strategies are prioritized, and decisions are made.
6. Initiate Action
Without well-orchestrated implementation, even the best plan is not worth the paper it's printed on. Using professional persistence and a team approach, we can take your financial plan from concept to reality.
7. Our Partnership Continues... For Generations
We continue to move in your chosen direction. Together, we will make necessary adjustments due to changes in your situation, tax laws, and the economy.
