PLAN THE LIFE YOU WANT

A well designed plan will help you feel better today and restore confidence in your future.

OUR SERVICES

Here at Spillane Financial Planning, we believe a financial plan is like a good road map – it shows you where you are now, where you want to go, the best route to get you there, and what side trips you may want to take along the way. Whether you are just setting out on your financial journey, or seeking to protect what you have already created, we can guide you along the way. We’ll look at your entire financial picture and help you fit the pieces together properly.

Everyone is different.  That is why we create a customized investment plan based on your individual needs and circumstances.  Your goals and your tolerance for risk are the two main ingredients that go into making your plan uniquely yours.

DISCOVER

We will learn about what’s important to you and what you want to accomplish. We will examine the challenges you face now and expect to face in the future.

ANALYZE

We will review and analyze your financial information, develop a strategy for you to succeed, and help you tackle your biggest financial decisions.

EDUCATE

We will make sure you understand what’s in your plan, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of your choices. We will empower you to make smart decisions.

GUIDE

We will provide ongoing guidance and support to help you implement your plan and stick to your plan. We will update your plan regularly based on charges in your personal situation.

A PERSONAL APPROACH

You get an experienced Certified Financial Planner™ who works with you one-on-one. The advice and guidance you receive will not come from someone you have never met.

CONVENIENCE.

You can meet with us in person or virtually. We all lead busy lives and it’s not always convenient or possible to meet in person.

MODERN

We operate a technology-friendly practice that streamlines the way we work together. We offer video conferencing, online access to your plan, and a real-time view of your finances.


 

A FOCUS ON GEN X

We focus primarily on helping Gen Xers because this group of people tends to be largely ignored by financial planning professionals and generally need the most help with their finances.

AFFORDABLE RATES

We offer a flat (and affordable) monthly fee just like any other bill you pay. There are no asset minimums, no commissions, and no product sales.

OBJECTIVE ADVICE

Fee-only means we are paid exclusively by our clients. No commissions, no referral fees, and no kickbacks of any kind means we are able to focus on what’s in your best interest. 

INVEST IN YOURSELF

Grow your financial knowledge and develop good money habits to live a better life.
