What is sudden wealth syndrome?

Sudden wealth syndrome refers to the stress and emotional turmoil that can accompany unexpectedly coming in a large amount of money. It often leads to feelings of confusion and anxiety about managing the new wealth responsibly.

What should I do when a lot of money suddenly appears in my life?

Take a deep breath, and don't rush into any big decisions. It's a good idea to assemble a trusted team of financial advisors, including a financial planner or wealth manager, to help you plan your next steps carefully.

Should I work with a Certified Financial Planner or a wealth advisor?

Both can be beneficial. A Certified Financial Planner can help you with broad financial planning, while a wealth advisor might offer more specialized investment advice. Depending on your needs, working with both could provide comprehensive guidance. At 360 Financial, you will have access to a wealth advisor and CFP as part of our wealth management services.

Can you help me understand what my options are?

Absolutely! We can look at everything from investment strategies to estate planning aiming to ensure your financial stability. We'll discuss your goals and tailor a plan that suits your new financial landscape.

How can we ensure this money lasts and benefits my family for generations?

By establishing a solid estate plan and considering trusts or other financial structures, we seek to help secure your wealth across generations. Regular reviews and adjustments to the plan will ensure it remains aligned with your family's evolving needs.

I need advice on taxes and how much I should be setting aside; can you help with that?

Planning for taxes is crucial. We'll analyze your new financial situation to forecast your tax liabilities and suggest how much you should set aside, considering various tax planning strategies.

I'm worried that investing involves risk. How can I reduce risk when investing?

Understanding and managing risk is crucial. We can tailor an investment strategy that fits your risk profile, focusing on diversification and choosing investments that align with your comfort level and financial goals.

What kind of team do I need to manage all these aspects of wealth?

A comprehensive team usually includes a financial planner, investment advisor, tax professional, and an attorney. Depending on your needs, you might also consider a risk management consultant and a private banker.

How do we get started with estate planning? What documents do I need?

We begin by discussing your long-term wishes and objectives. Key documents we'll need to prepare include a will, trusts, healthcare directives, and powers of attorney.

Personal Finance after a Sudden Wealth Event

If personal finance wasn't your focus before, it probably is now that you've come into sudden wealth.

Feeling the pressure to make smart choices and protect your money is natural, and you might worry about who to trust and whether people are just after your money.


The key is to make calm, logical decisions that truly fit with your lifestyle and goals.


Remember, it's okay to take your time and avoid jumping into risky investments or anything that doesn't feel right.

What Is Sudden Wealth Management?

Sudden wealth management involves advising and guiding anyone who has unexpectedly come into significant financial resources.

You may have come into a windfall through an inheritance, lottery win, business sale, sudden professional success, legal settlement or other sudden wealth events.


In this case, working with a wealth management team is likely a wise move. In particular, we recommend working with a fiduciary financial advisor so you can relax knowing that your advisor is always working in your best interest.

Sudden wealth management focuses on addressing the unique challenges of managing large sums of money.


When dealing with sudden wealth, there are potential tax implications and lifestyle changes. Your advisor should be focused on helping you to pursue long-term financial stability and reliable income streams.

Navigating New Wealth with Ease

At 360 Financial, we are an independent advisory firm that offers all the wealth management tools you'll find at a big-box firm but with personalized service that is tailored to your family's exact needs. We are a group of fiduciary financial advisors — CFPs and AIFs — who care deeply about providing the best possible service and strategies to our clients.

All investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.  360 Financial and LPL Financial do not offer legal advice or services. This information is not intended to be a substitute for specific individualized tax or legal advice. We suggest that you discuss your specific situation with a qualified tax or legal advisor. The opinions voiced in this material are for general information only and are not intended to provide specific advice or recommendations for any individual. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

Planning Your Financial Future

What is the financial planning process?

At 360, our process consists of three meetings:

  1. Discovery

  2. Design

  3. Deployment

1) Discovery: The first step is to get to know you and your family, as well as your complete financial picture. We need to answer the question: What is important to you?

2) Design: Next, we design a LifeWealth Plan that is customized to your needs.

3) Deployment: Now it's time to execute. We put your plan into practice, knowing that the strategy and plan are covered.

The next stage is ongoing management and review.  A plan is never one-and-done. After we set the plan in motion, we monitor it. We'll meet annually or bi-annually to review and realign.
