The Best Financial Advisor Should ...

John Buerger, Financial AdvisorI believe that the best financial advisor should be focused on HELPING YOU:

— (truly) Understand your current finances – “Where You Are”
Be Clear about how you want to improve your financial future – “Where You Want to Be”
Discover the Best Path to get you from “Where You Are” to “Where You Want to Be”
— stay Aligned with your Values (the things in life that are most important to you).

That financial advisor should Help You, not dictate to you what you should do. They should collaborate and coach without Judgment.

My name is John. I created ALTUS Wealth Solutions to do for you, the client, what I wanted a financial planning firm to be able to do for me – provide wisdom, experience and perspective to help you do the most with the financial resources you have.

If you want advice from a professional & informed personal-finance veteran, aligned with your values, then I believe we should at least have a (free) conversation to explore the possibilities. I promise to do everything in my power to make our time together worthwhile.
