Planning Specialties

At Summit, you will have a team of professionals assigned as your service team. Among us, you experience the range of wealth management services in building a comprehensive financial plan.

Additional Information

Managing your finances is complex and time-consuming. You’ve earned the right to partner with the experts at Summit Financial Strategies, Inc. to simplify the process. We’ll be with you every step of the way; acting as your advocate as we build your personal plan and work through life’s changes. In a world that is becoming less personal, Summit is bucking the trend. Our business is not about us: it is about you. We get to know your needs and desires, and work with you to build a plan to realize them. A key tenet of our business strategy is a low ratio of clients to professional staff. We’ve committed to no more than 40 clients per Advisor to make sure that you have the attention you deserve. Our long-term business plan includes a clear succession strategy, so you can rest assured that Summit will be here for you and your family. Our investment philosophy for long-term wealth creation is built on strategic asset allocation and diversified portfolios. We encourage long-term investing and discourage attempts at market timing. Our process begins with a clear understanding of your long-term needs, investing history, time horizon, risk tolerance, and investment preferences to create your Personal Investment Policy Statement. You will receive specific investment recommendations, incorporating no-load mutual funds, stocks, bonds, separately managed account, and other carefully selected specialty investments.
