Most wealth management firms are too product centric. They provide an expensive, bundled and haphazard solution before they ascertain your needs and objectives. This top‐down approach is inherently flawed. Lionshare offers a more innovative answer with a bottom‐up approach. We understand that clients worked hard to position themselves for financial success and want a firm that charges them for services based on what they need.
As a founding member of a Financial Planning Department that was tasked with providing financial planning support for over 4,000 clients, across the nation. This gave me a beautiful perspective on financial needs, dreams, and fears for a wide range of investor profiles. Since that time, I’ve launched Lionshare Partners and turned my popular Three Pillars of Advice model into an accessible deliverable, so clients can price and customize their own solutions.
Rivalry is especially destructive to profitability if it gravitates solely to price because price competition transfers profits directly from an industry to its customers.
