At Buckingham Advisors, planning is a process, not a product. We know that having access to a Financial Planner throughout your career allows you to work toward your financial goals more efficiently and may save you from mistakes that either cost you money or delay your objectives. Traditionally, young professionals or those just starting to accumulate assets haven’t had access to the expertise that they need because they did not have liquid assets to invest or because it was cost prohibitive. We have designed a subscription-based model to enable everyone to have access to a qualified team, regardless of where you are in your career. For $150 per month we have developed a program that will assist you in defining your financial goals, establish a plan to meet those goals, and monitor your progress along the way. In addition to the direct services listed below, you will have a large team of professionals working for you behind the scenes.
