What makes Snapshot different?

Created by a Certified Financial Planner to use in his own practice, Personal Financial Snapshot makes the complicated process of financial planning simple for both the planner and the client through an intuitive and easy-to-follow process. Designed as a great alternative to Wall Street focused software, our non-traditional, principle-based approach doesn’t recommend specific products. This allows the planner to prioritize client desires where they should be… at the top! The result is an easy-to-understand, comprehensive, one-page snapshot that clearly illustrates a client’s financial summary. It gives both the client and the planner actionable information on gaps and opportunities that indicate how best to move forward. With Personal Financial Snapshot you never have to guess!

Intuitive

Personal Financial Snapshot is designed with the clients’ needs in mind first. The layout provides a smart, detailed and easy-to-follow conversation flow that ensures all details are covered while keeping the client informed and engaged.

Comprehensive

Personal Financial Snapshot isn’t designed to suggest only certain products or solutions–instead, it creates a comprehensive view of a client’s financial situation, uncovering blind spots and reducing errors.

Principle-Based

The Snapshot model provides a platform for advisors to make appropriate
recommendations from a holistic view based on principles as opposed to recommending individual products and trying to predict future needs.

Actionable

Personal Financial Snapshot provides detailed and actionable information in an easy-to-follow, one-page snapshot–ensuring clients never have to guess what they should do next!

Snapshot gives clients an easy-to-understand, comprehensive, one-page view that clearly illustrates their financial summary.

The first step to wealth creation is systematically and automatically saving a percentage of earnings for the future. People should save at least 15% of their gross income.
Maximum, in simplest terms, is the best someone can do. Accidents, death, disability, lawsuits, and medical needs cannot be predicted. Maximum protection puts clients in the best position to be prepared for any of those events.
The ability to guarantee replacement of assets based on a guaranteed life event (death), gives people the liberty to utilize and enjoy assets while living at a much higher level than if they were to self-insure. Self-insuring leads to fear of outliving assets. Insuring allows freedom to use assets while living.
”Cash is King”. Those who have sufficient levels of cash have the ability to avoid unnecessary debt and take advantage of opportunities while still being prepared for unexpected life events.
Velocity of money simply means getting more than one use of the same dollar. Dollars that can be used more than once have the ability to provide added benefits, reduce risk, increase ability to build and utilize wealth and increase capacity to transfer assets.
