At Fordham Financial Services, Inc. we work alongside estate planning attorney's depending on each client’s situation. The objectives include achieving personal goals of the client, efficient transfer of assets, minimal tax cost, and family harmony. But the legal issues faced by clients of any age can be quite varied; part of the attorney's role is to determine the client's needs, manage the client's expectations, and present an understandable strategy for achieving the objectives. Although one of the major responsibilities of the attorney is to draft the documents, the process also includes disability planning, income and estate tax issues, planning for efficient distribution of assets, long-term care planning, retirement planning, and financial planning. Some attorneys may specialize in certain areas, while others may provide a more general focus. It is important that all professionals work together to represent the interests of a particular client. In today's environment, the work of agents and financial advisors is integrated with the issues of estate planning, tax planning, retirement planning, and long-term care. As a trusted advisor, clients will turn to you for advice on whom to contact if they have other issues or problems that need to be addressed. To be perceived as a sophisticated and full-service provider, it is helpful for you to have the capability to put together a team including our in house CPA, attorney, and other professionals who will help address our clients' needs.
Here at Fordham Financial Services, Inc we have noticed that many financial advisors do not have a direct relationship with the individuals CPA. This can cause many problems and directly impact the individual or company’s future. At FFS our head investment advisor is a CFP® and a CPA to avoid these costly mistakes. CPA's and financial advisors work together to address the most important aspects of an investors financial life. In the grand scheme of working with an investor, the financial advisor provides investment options whose descriptions are in line with the clients goals while the CPA structures the investments in favor of the investor as it pertains to taxation. This way all sides benefit. The client get’s the best of both worlds from each professional and both the CPA and financial advisor either earn a new client or strengthen their already existing relationship. Although there can be some overlap in skills, CPA's tend to provide the highest levels of expertise on taxation and regulation while financial advisers often are more focused on helping people with personal financial planning, retirement and estate planning, college funding, investing, risk management, and business succession planning.
