Meet the Team
There are times to take risk in the financial planning process. Insurance and estate planning, however, are not the time.
Many fee-only advisors (and their clients) experience frustration with insurance policies not performing as originally intended. Hypothetical returns and non-guaranteed dividends commonly create unrealistic expectations that almost certainly require future remedy. While taking risks in a portfolio is typically necessary for many investment clients, taking risks with insurance planning is typically not.
If it is not guaranteed in the contract, it is not guaranteed.
FEIP prides itself on meeting and exceeding expectations. From years of experience, we tend to favor products that are fully guaranteed by contract, allowing us to consistently meet expectations and keep advisors and their clients happy.
Insurance planning is not always the answer.
Through the collaboration of estate and insurance planning experts, FEIP strives to find the best solution for the client, not necessarily the best product.
