What is relationship-based financial planning?

Preserving, building and enjoying wealth requires a plan — but not just any plan. Your goals and priorities aren’t like anyone else’s. That’s why, at Greenspring, we practice relationship-based financial planning. Clients, not products, come first. The road from ‘present wealth’ to ‘possibility’ begins and ends with your needs and goals. We customize your financial plan to create a unique, comprehensive roadmap to financial security and freedom, however you define it. Unlike larger firms that offer pre-built portfolios or push proprietary products that earn them additional fees, we collaborate with our clients to develop long-term relationships and strategic solutions for wealth management.

Your Greenspring advisor can help inform and help navigate all the crossroads you’ll face in your life, whether you want to:

  • Partner with an advisory firm who can act as your Personal CFO;
  • Manage and coordinate your investments to align with a long-term plan;
  • Minimize your tax burden;
  • Find balance between enjoying wealth now and having it serve you in the future;
  • Create smart solutions for passing along your wealthand creating a legacy;
  • See the big picture so you can anticipate milestones and plan deliberately to meet them.

Account aggregation

Monitor your progress and goals on an easy-to-use, personalized dashboard displaying everything you choose: from a bird’s-eye view of your plan to your accounts portfolio, down to the granular view of individual, daily investment progress.

Cash flow planning

Our experts are as skilled in communicating budget analysis and strategies as they are in managing them. Your cash flow can’t work for you if you can’t see it in real time, so we use easy to understand modeling and analysis tools to make sure you have a window into exactly what’s going on with your wealth at all times.

Charitable gift planning

Giving back is a priority for us and for many of our clients. We help you invest strategically in the community to help you accomplish your long and short term charitable and philanthropic goals.

Education planning

We can help you avoid the pitfalls of paying for college and make sure you have the finances available when needed.

Estate and family governance planning

Our advisors are experts in the field of wealth transference and estate planning. For the assets you choose to protect and preserve for future generations, we can help you leave a legacy. We also have insight into creating long-term trusts and multi-generation liquidity strategies.

Insurance planning and risk management

We’ll help you consolidate and coordinate your insurance needs and evaluate your coverage to prevent too much or too little insurance. Risk management evaluates areas such as liability planning, income tax impact, and planning for unexpected emergencies.

Portfolio building and management

You bring the goals and intentions, we’ll bring the expertise. We’ll match your investment strategy to your lifelong financial plan, help manage it, and answer any questions you have along the way.

Reporting and analysis

In addition to providing real-time views into the progress of your financial plan, we provide our clients with analysis, reviews and updates through regular reports. In addition to quarterly reviews of your investment portfolio, we can analyze your risk and returns in comparison to peers and indexes.

Most of our clients ask us first: “How much do I need to retire?” We help you find that important answer, and help you reach the post-career life you’ve envisioned.
