Adapting to You and Your Needs

An Open Retainer Agreement is the most comprehensive package we offer at Lakeside Financial Planning. While on retainer, you can meet or speak with us as often as you like without facing any additional fees. We’ll cover all aspects of your financial life from retirement planning to taxes to investment allocations and more. To simplify things, we’ll break your financial plan down into small parts with each meeting covering a specific topic. After our meeting, you’ll receive an outline with detailed instructions on any outstanding items. To accommodate for your busy lifestyle, we offer phone, virtual, and live meetings.

Financial Snapshot Review

Take the Reins with DIY Financial Planning

A Financial Snapshot Review is a one-time engagement designed for do-it-yourselfers looking for recommendations on specific financial questions. The Review consists of a two-hour assessment of three to five financial planning topics selected in advance by the client. Popular topics include, but are not limited to; retirement planning, asset allocation strategies, social security & pension optimization, and college funding recommendations. During our meeting we will re-confirm your “most pressing” financial planning questions and get to work answering them. You will leave the appointment and within a week you will receive a written report that summarizes the findings, recommendations, and steps to take to reach your goals.
