A special message from Bob FitzSimmons…
I am frequently asked by clients what would happen to their investment accounts should I suffer a life-threating illness or accident or one day retire. The good news is I have had a formal continuity and succession plan in place for several years. The plan is in place so that our clients will not experience any disruption in the level of financial services they have experienced for many, many years.
While I do not plan on retiring in the near future, I know it is prudent to have a continuity and succession plan in place.
A TEAM ON WHICH TO RELY
Jason Peplinski has for several years been the key investment services professional backup in my office. He is named in my formal written continuity plan should anything happen that would limit my capacity in the short or long run to service clients.
Jason and I first started working together in November 2007 as a Investment Advisor Representative and is securities-licensed through Sagepoint Financial, a registered broker/dealer (member FINRA/SIPC). During this time, Jason has repeatedly demonstrated a level of client service and investment knowledge that is both broad and comprehensive. Jason expects to complete the training and testing that will lead to his approval to use the prestigious Certified Financial Planner® professional marks of distinction.
I have seen first-hand how he assists his financial services clients and believe his ethics and service mentality are qualities with which my clients will be comfortable. He has been engaged in the financial service business for more than 16 years. Accordingly, I have named Jason as both a junior partner and a Vice President at FP Wealth Management, Inc. I look forward to introducing him to you on your next visit to the office.
Of course, I still plan to be around and will to continue to help my clients address their investment goals and objectives. But it is great to be surrounded by a competent team who can continue on seamlessly should an unforeseeable illness or accident occur.
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS
My firm has been around since 1990 – that’s nearly 25 years! In celebration, we thought that it was time for a facelift. And so, in January 2014, our firm announced a new corporate name, logo and tagline. The new name is: FP Wealth Management, Inc.
Our new corporate name reflects the primary focus of our financial services business—namely, wealth management planning for individuals and families. The new tagline for the firm is: Today. Tomorrow. Forever. The new tagline reflects that our wealth management services start the very first day you become a client…plus many years into the future…and eventually helping with the transfer or your estate to your beneficiaries and your favorite charities.
I hope you like the new look and know that you will continue to appreciate our focus on bringing you good financial strategies to life’s various challenges. Planning is important—for all of us. What kind of a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional would I be if I didn’t walk my own talk?
I look forward to answering any questions you may have. Just pick up the phone and call or send me an email if you’d like to visit about the 25th anniversary “rebranding” or the continuity and succession plan outlined above.
