How 360 Financial Helps Business Owners

We serve business owners by allowing them to focus on what is most important to them – their business and family.

You devote your time and energy on managing a successful business, culture where employees can thrive and serve as the backbone of the American economy. With all these responsibilities, it’s easy to overlook your personal financial well-being. 

As a business owner you have obligations and assets that need to be managed carefully. Whether you’re planning on exiting the business soon or are in the wealth-building stage, we help you pursue your financial goals and prepare for the future. Creating and protecting generational wealth is the result of careful wealth management, so selecting the right team is critical.

If taking care of your financial future is a priority, please get in touch.

When it comes to your wealth management and financial planning for business owners, you deserve the best advice and guidance.

Fee-Only Financial Planning for Business Owners

Should your financial advisor and financial planner be fiduciaries?

As an independent firm with a team of eight qualified financial advisors our goal is to provide outstanding service and personalized big picture planning. We are fee-only fiduciary financial advisors who put your needs and goals first. We don’t have hidden fees or sell packaged products that aren’t in your best interest.

What Is Fee-Only Financial Planning?

As a fee-only firm, we don’t sell you products in order to earn a commission.

There are no hidden fees. When working with a fee-only financial advisor you will pay a percentage of assets under management. This covers all the services provided by your advisory firm. At 360, you receive comprehensive wealth management services, and you don’t have to worry about hidden costs.

What Are the Benefits of Working with a Fiduciary?

A fiduciary financial advisor has a legal obligation to act in your best interests at all times.

Not all financial planners or advisors are fiduciaries. Thus, when looking for a wealth management team, it’s important to check the designations your advisor has. 

The main benefit of working with a fiduciary is that you can have confidence knowing your advisor is always acting in your best interest. They aren’t sales people working for a commission. They are there to guide you towards achieving your financial goals and help you weather the ups and downs of the markets.

The cost of not having a robust financial plan and wealth management team can be significant.

Without a clear plan, you may be missing out on opportunities to protect your wealth and prepare for the future. It only takes one wrong financial move to wipe out an entire lifetime of wealth building.

Many people think that you have to have $100M in assets to have a wealth management team that looks out for your entire financial big picture. But that’s not the case.

We believe that a comprehensive financial plan and wealth management strategy is critical for financial security and confidence in your plan.

What is a normal fee for a financial planner or wealth advisor?

Many financial planners and wealth management teams charge a 1% fee, which may not include the investment fees. Some underlying investments—such as certain mutual funds—within your portfolio may have costs over and above what you pay for financial advice.

How do you charge? What is your cost structure?

We charge assets under management (AUM) fee. Essentially that means we charge a fee on the assets that we manage. It’s a percentage of your account value. We are always transparent with our service and investment fees. And we believe that you should always ask your financial advisor about the all-in cost.

What is the difference between a financial advisor and a financial planner?

The terms financial advisor and a financial planner are used interchangeably. We recommend that you work with a Certified Financial Planner that is a fiduciary.

Are you certified financial planners?

At 360 Financial we have many CFPs in our office.

Does your firm receive recognition for production?

Mike Rogers, our founder and president, is part of LPL’s Chairman council which is awarded to less than 1% of advisors and based on annual production among LPL Advisors.

LPL is the #1 Independent Broker/Dealer in the US1 and the #3 RIA Custodian in the US2.

How much money do I need to have to work with you?

Most of 360 Financials’s clients have a portfolios of $1M or greater. Typically, we work with clients with $1M or more in investable assets or the ability to get there. If a client is younger, and building wealth, we know they will be able to grow their wealth to have $1M or more in assets at retirement.

What should I bring to my first meeting with you?
