Our Services FINANCIAL PLANNING AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT Financial planning is at the very core of the life planning services we provide to individuals and families seeking to build, preserve and manage wealth over time. Retirement income planning, education planning, tax and estate planning, and risk management services are components of a larger, more comprehensive financial plan designed to achieve multiple financial and lifestyle goals. Your plan also provides for your heirs and defines the legacy you choose to leave. INVESTMENT PLANNING At Stratos Wealth Partners we take the time to develop a clear policy of your intentions to address your investment goals and objectives regardless of market conditions. Often referred to as an “investment policy statement,” we have found that those who clearly define and commit their position to paper have a distinct advantage in weathering the inevitable fluctuations that are a reality in today’s investment marketplace. INSURANCE AND RISK MANAGEMENT Protecting yourself, your loved ones, your home or your business against unexpected events is a fundamental aspect of financial planning. Closing the gap on potential risks can be tricky without a comprehensive plan and process that methodically evaluates all potential risk factors. That’s why risk analysis is an integral part of our ongoing process. We continually identify and analyze all risk factors and make objective and unbiased risk management recommendations to help provide you the financial security you seek.
