Lewis Baker, CFP @ bsswealth.com - In today's environment of easy to access and low-cost investment platforms, our challenge is to help people understand there is a difference between having an investment account and having a financial plan. Once we highlight this difference they begin to understand the value of paying for the advice from a true professional who has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer. They learn that the value is not in financial products alone but in what strategies are employed utilizing investment products and services to minimize taxes and leverage the impact that their assets can have for themselves and their families.
