One of our main goals is to always maximize the financial strength of our clients, but to accomplish this in the most efficient way possible we must begin by first seeking to understand them. So, we begin by listening and attempting to understand YOU.
Although our special area of focus is working with retirees and those preparing for retirement, our team possesses the licenses, experience, and education to adequately serve most clients. The following is a profile of the six groups of clients that we find ourselves serving most frequently:
From high net worth individuals to those just getting started in building a strong financial foundation, we will tailor a plan of action that will help you meet your more immediate, short-term needs and goals, while making sure your financial future is being properly addressed as well.
We understand and appreciate that different families have different goals and different challenges. At Benson Financial Group, our specialized experience and team-based approach will help your family plan for your children’s future (including a college funding plan), preserve your wealth, and successfully transfer your assets on to the next generation through targeted estate planning strategies. We treat our firm as family, and each of our advisors helps lead their own family. Families are near and dear to our heart, and we will work with the fullest integrity to help ensure that your family is protected from the uncertainties of the world we all live in together.
Business Owners / Farmers
Whether you are an entrepreneur, own your own business, or operate your own farming operation, your assets and challenges are very different from most. By first listening and seeking to understand and acknowledge the complexities of your financial world, we come alongside you to help organize your financial outlook and provide you a financial roadmap so that you can spend more time leading your successful business.
We bring over fourteen years of experience and expertise assisting public school educators and their families. Traditional financial wisdom can fail families because of cash-flow deficiencies during the educator’s working years, and due to the fact that these educators often retire at a relatively young age with a taxable income benefit that often creates unusual tax challenges. Whether it’s helping your family create greater cash flow before retirement, helping you to prepare for potential future tax risk and Social Security reductions, or other challenges that result from participating in your extraordinary pension, we can help your family navigate through it all.
