Written Financial Plan

Sommers Financial Management can provide a written financial plan that outlines your retirement and education savings goals, and shows multiple methods for you to achieve those goals, based on your current situation and future plans for saving and investment.

Additionally, the plan includes a net worth statement, summaries of current assets and liabilities, an outline of assumptions and estimates used, an insurance needs analysis (life, disability, and long-term care), estate planning options and considerations, estate-tax estimates, a recommended asset allocation, secondary goal achievement evaluations, a lifetime estimation of cash flow, Monte Carlo simulations, "what-if?" scenario analysis for review, and debt freedom analysis.

The plan includes preliminary information gathering (meetings/calls/emails), as well as a plan presentation meeting wherein you may ask questions, request recommendations on how to proceed with your plan, or have SFM simulate and analyze other "what-if" scenarios you would like reviewed or considered.

  • We provide a questionnaire to help gather information to be used in the financial plan.
  • We ask you for further information on any items that need clarification based on the questionnaire and supporting documents you provide.
  • We will provide you with the likelihood that your goals will be achieved if no material changes are made to your current course of action.
  • We may provide some recommendations and possible changes to the current course of action.
  • We will provide you with steps to implement our recommendations.
