Your hard-earned money is at high risk for being lost taxes and fees if your advisor doesn't know to ask you the right questions, isn't aware of changes to the turbulent tax code, and/or hasn't been trained in high-level retirement planning strategies.
In 2011, as a newly minted Certified Financial Planner™ Practitioner, Mark met Ed Slott and realized he had been missing so much for his clients. Ed Slott is the country's foremost expert in retirement distribution planning. You may have seen Ed on PBS where he helped raise millions of dollars for Public Television, or on just about any news channel or financial publication.
Shortly thereafter, Mark began training with Ed and his group of professionals and he is proud to be a member of Ed Slott's Master Elite Advisor group.
An excerpt from Ed Slott's webiste reads:
Retirement Money is One of Your Largest Assets. Are You Working with The Right Advisor?
