Rochester, NY: Family Wealth and Legacy is proud to announce Michael Palumbos has won the 2019 PlanPlus Global Financial Planning Awards. The Global Awards Program started six years ago. The goal was to showcase financial planning at it's best. The awards give global recognition to advisors creating extraordinary value for their clients. Michael Palumbos won the award in the Americas category. "We entered the competition looking for constructive criticism about our financial planning process. We didn't expect to win. It's a real honor for our team." said Michael Palumbos, the founder of the firm.
The competition scores in three rounds by a panel of five judges. The focus is on the comprehensive nature of the advisor's planning process. As well as, the value and benefit the planning had for the client. This judging criterion sets the PlanPlus competition apart from other competitions. Other programs focus on the advisor's total assets under management, not the value of the planning to the client. For most clients the benefit of planning is often in areas other than managing the portfolio. It's the income tax reduction strategies and the business growth or transition plan. It's having someone look at their entire situation. Taking the time to point out any gaps or opportunities they may have not even known about.
Entry is limited to a person with a recognized professional designation who is in good standing with a financial planning association or other professional body. Only finalists will be required to submit the actual plan document on which their submission was based. Pursuant to financial planning practice standards, the advisor must have an engagement agreement in place to ensure that full disclosure of all material facts has been made to the client. This includes but is not limited to: how the planner is compensated, disclosure of all commissions, fees, etc. as well as disclosure of any conflicts of interest.
PlanPlus and Lincoln Financial Advisors Corp. are not affiliated.
