What is Financial Planning?


NAPFA affiliated Fulbright Financial Consulting, PA in Durham

Most people don't take full advantage of the benefits of having a financial advisor. Good financial planning will prepare you for what we call "The Triple Whammy".  Simply put, The Triple Whammy is when 3 bad things happen in 6 months.  For example, how quickly could you recover from the loss of your job, your house burning down and the stock market crashing - all in a matter of months?  As a financial consulting and investment advisory firm, our specialty is personal finance.  We help you develop an action plan for best and worst case scenarios. 

We help you build wealth, protect your assets and make sound financial choices.
