Ralph V. Allen, CLU, Chfc, RICP
Ralph Allen is now in his 4th decade of providing sound financial advice, products and services to a broad cross section of clients. From those years as an advisor, a common thread has prevailed. "Nobody plans to fail, yet most do". . From a statistical perspective, the real numbers have not deviated much in over 35 years. Perhaps we can chalk it up to the difficulty most have to behavioral changes, but we know that unless there is a process where both the client and advisor agree, progress can be elusive. My goal is to help people fortify themselves, their families, and their business against those calamities that are all too familiar to each of us. We need to understand and appreciate our economic value. Everyday someone faces the possibility of outliving their nest egg, disruption of income due to sickness or a tragic accident, or the irrecoverable loss of your best asset...you. Proactive planning addresses that and much more. Clients live less stressful lives. The goal is to eliminate panic when the uncontrollable event occurs and allow the plan to work. Businesses and their best talent follow a similar track. Transitioning to the next generation of owners and/or retaining those key players becomes crucial. The intent is to treat the business as a separate, living entity that depends on success and synergy to survive. Strategies that provide retirement funds and long term care services are emphasized because they are related to prosperity and satisfaction. I assist those who need help structuring income, inheritances, and Social Security while managing portfolios created for specific client needs and goals I am a proud member of the Society of Financial Service Professionals (SFSP), National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) and subscribes to continuing education on a frequent basis.
