Independent advice gives you more than you may think.

The vast majority of financial providers in the United States who insinuate they are independent — are not. Use of the term "independent" is restricted by the Corporations Act and means that an adviser doesn't have their own products to sell and doesn't receive any commissions or volume-based payments.

In order to give financial advice in the United States, you need to have a license from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Most advisers lack the skills or knowledge to obtain a license themselves and so they align themselves with a bank or other financial institution that already has a license. Unfortunately, in doing so, they have taken the easy option but sacrificed their independence. They give over control to the bank to decide which investments they are allowed to recommend.

Calculator

In the US, there are around 318,000 financial advisers. Yet some statistics in recent years are that:

  • 75% of Americans wing it when it comes to thier financial future (CNBC)
  • 12%  the success rate in the financial services industry (financial Samurai)
  • 50% of advisers are over the age of 55 (Cerulli Associates 2020)
  • 70% of financial advisors today are still performing transactional activities (Brandongallie.com)

We have not taken the easy path

Instead, we got licensed and certified because being independent is very important to us.

Our collaborative team offers the depth and breadth you need to navigate life's decisions. For many of our clients, we operate as their personal CFO, simplifying their lives by providing clarity and answers to the myriad of financial decisions they face every day.

Comprehensive Analysis

Efficient financial planning requires a close look at more than just account values and years to retirement. Our team assesses your insurance coverage, cash flow, investment strategy, real estate portfolio, and more. We review each area within the context of your current situation and long-term goals.

Objective Advice

As an independent firm, we do not have a vested interest in specific products or services that can bias our judgment or recommendations. And since our compensation is completely independent of insurance or investment decisions you may make, we can be completely neutral in our analysis of your situation.

Personalized Service

We are a boutique firm and we thrive on building long-term relationships with our clients. Our process is an opportunity for us to get to know our clients exceptionally well. Annuity Strategic prides itself in working as a team — both internally and with you — offering as much or as little hand holding as you need.

Valuable Tools

Most financial advisors offer clients tools to help manage their future. But few offer both proprietary tools AND personal coaching to help you use them. We help you understand how to use the tools effectively and efficiently to meet your specific needs.
