What To Expect from INDFIN LLC

Comprehensive Financial Plan

A Comprehensive Financial Plan (the “Plan”) is a thorough review of all aspects of your financial life. In order to develop this Plan, in-depth discussions will be held regarding your financial goals, worries... in short, where you want to go. These would include the more “obvious”, such as saving for college tuitions, retirement, etc.  It will also, however, deal with more abstract ideas... what does “retirement” mean (volunteer work? a new career? a vacation home or relocation?), what do you want to leave for your children (both financial and non-financial considerations)?

The Plan will cover:

  • Current Financial Position
  • Contingency Fund
  • Debt Management — Good vs. Bad debt; Mortgage options
  • Insurance — Review of existing coverage; Recommendations regarding appropriate types and levels of coverage
  • Investments — Review of current investments; Calculations of amounts needed for financial goals; Recommendations for investment vehicles (ownership, etc.) and specific investments
  • Tax Considerations
  • Estate Planning Issues

Ongoing Services

The Plan is a stand-alone product, one that clients find extremely valuable on its own. However, many clients choose to develop an ongoing financial planning relationship (through an annual retainer, for a fixed fee). An annual contract includes: 

  • Assistance with implementation of all elements of Plan
  • Ongoing monitoring of interest rates for mortgage refinancing opportunities
  • Investment monitoring and/or management — Monitoring consists of periodic reviews of portfolio managed by others, review of investment recommendations provided by others, as well as review/monitoring of employer-sponsored retirements plans (401k, 403b, etc.); Management consists of ongoing, active investment management (either buying and selling securities using Limited Trading Authorization (with or without prior consent of client, at client’s discretion)
  • Communications with other professionals as needed (tax accountant, estate planning attorney, investment broker, etc.)
  • Annual update/review of all projections included in Plan (i.e., college funding scenarios, retirement scenarios, etc.)
  • Analysis, advice, and assistance on any other issue, as directed by the client. Such issues might include (but are not limited to): New car (buy vs. lease, financing options); What to do with unanticipated cash receipt (larger bonus, inheritance, etc); Review of proposals (i.e., someone “suggests” a certain insurance policy or investment); New benefits offered through employer (or professional association)
