Why We Do It
Providing sound, experienced financial guidance within our warm, family-like atmosphere gives us a great sense of pride and fulfillment. We genuinely care about making a positive impact in the lives of others. Summit Financial Solutions is built on a foundation of integrity, commitment, loyalty, and kindness. But these aren’t just words we say - they are the principles on which we base all of our client interaction. We are proud of the fact that we have served many of our clients for decades and continue to care for them and their families throughout multiple generations.
Our Fiduciary Responsibility
As Investment Advisor Representatives, our team is held to a higher fiduciary standard than a broker, insurance salesperson or bank employee. We are obligated by law to place our clients’ interests first and we believe that our clients appreciate our loyalty, integrity, candor, and consultative approach.
The fiduciary duty we adhere to requires us to act in the best interest of our clients and to put our clients’ needs above our own at all times. We must act with trust and loyalty, provide upfront disclosures, and eliminate possible conflicts of interest.
In addition to being fiduciaries, we are also completely independent and are therefore not tied to any proprietary products or commission-based sales quotas. We provide comprehensive needs based financial planning and offer customized financial solutions. We take into consideration your retirement cash flow and liquidity needs, current and future tax projections, estate distribution wishes, risk management needs, investment allocations and selections, and much more. We only recommend strategies that are in our clients’ best interests and work for you and you alone.
We are in a unique position because we provide the boutique level of service from a small firm, but also have the backing of Cambridge Investment Research, a leading independent broker-dealer. Cambridge has over $137 assets under advisement, 900 home office associates, and over 3,800 independent registered representatives serving hundreds of thousands of clients across the US.1
