Executive Wealth Management Solution

Brandywine Financial Group's proprietary Executive Wealth Management Solution, developed by company founder, Raymond Carota, is a dynamic process specifically designed to meet the changing lifestyle of the highly compensated executive. It requires expertise and commitment from us and a strong degree of involvement from you. Throughout, you will learn much more about your own financial situation, while learning to feel confident placing your trust in us. Our working relationship begins with an intensive series of meetings that encompasses The Executive Wealth Management Solution. These disciplines are implemented through the management of assets and risk in order to maintain the lifestyle of our clients and their families.

Successful executives and professionals today have extraordinary opportunities to grow and preserve wealth. Many also have extraordinary demands on their time. For those individuals, Brandywine Financial Group can help carve a path of simplicity in a world of financial complexity. How does the busy executive find the time to stay current with all of the information about finances and trends? They can't, if you have a full time career and still want to enjoy a comfortable, relaxed lifestyle. You need a partner. For highly compensated executives, there is often little time left in a busy schedule to effectively manage their own financial affairs. Creating the most value from today's sophisticated compensation strategies, however, requires thorough, ongoing analysis within the context of a comprehensive wealth management plan. Brandywine Financial Group has access to the analytical tools and expertise to assist clients in the management of stock option and deferred compensation plans, maximizing the tax efficiency and long-term return of these important wealth creation tools for successful executives.

  • Wealth accumulation and protection strategies
  • Retirement & Investment Planning - Develop an investment strategy that helps meet retirement needs while preserving capital and minimizing volatility

  • Risk Management - A fancy word for insurance: to ensure you have the right types, and the right amounts for the right reasons

Once your plan is in place, our service has just begun.

As our clients quickly discover, we are readily available at any time to respond to questions and engage in discussion.


THE EXECUTIVE WEALTH MANAGEMENT SOLUTION PROCESS

Acquaintance: Prepare to focus on you. In this initial meeting, we ask you to tell us in detail about your financial life. Your goals and lifestyle. Risks and opportunities you foresee. We'll want to understand your personal characteristics-your strengths and your experiences, as well as areas in which we can support you. We'll also provide you with a list of documents to gather, so that we can form a more complete picture of your situation.

Discovery: Our learning continues as you provide the materials requested in the previous meeting. More questions, more discussion, a deeper understanding of you and your goals. Your BFG financial advisor will meet with any or all members of your financial team - your accountant, estate planner, insurance agent, business consultant, or trust advisor to review and discuss your goals. Or we can recommend one of our Strategic Partners to help you meet your needs.

Validation: We present a detailed review of all the background information you provided us, so that you can validate its accuracy. This ensures a clear understanding of the assumptions we will use to move forward. Although this is a recap of information from our clients, it's often an eye-opening experience for them.

Strategy: In this meeting we outline a strategy for helping you achieve your financial goals. A simple focused look at a plan to help you get where you want to be.

Recommendations and Execution: Finally, we discuss specific recommendations for investing and other actions and begin the implementation process. We take responsibility for execution and follow-through.

Update: Your financial plan will be monitored and updated to reflect changes in your lifestyle.

Review: Meetings or phone conferences will be scheduled periodically to track progress towards goals. Changes in your financial situation, risk tolerance, or personal circumstances may create the need for a financial plan adjustment. This review is to assure you that you are on the path to achieve your objectives.
