How We’re Different

A Holistic Perspective for Better Results

At KOHR Financial and Insurance Services, we look at financial planning from a different perspective—one that takes into consideration all aspects of your life and your future. Many financial and investment professionals are micromanagers; they focus on only a handful of financial products or services, and try to find a way to make those products work for you.

We approach things differently. We consider ourselves to be macro-managers first. We take a comprehensive look at things and come to understand what it is you hope to achieve with your finances. Whether you’re just starting out and want to build your savings, or you’ve built your assets and want to ensure you’ll have reliable income for retirement, we figure out your objectives before anything else.

Then, we find the best products, services, and investment vehicles to get you where you want to go. Our comprehensive investment and insurance products and services allow us to build a holistic plan that meets all of your needs. By putting your objectives first, we can build a more customized financial plan for a more secure future.

Our Commitment Is to Put Your Interests First

As a fiduciary, we always put your interests first—and we’ve designed our entire business to keep it this way. Unlike some money managers, we have no incentives to sell you commission-based financial products or place trades in your account when it’s not best for you. We’re here to serve, not sell. Our simple fee structure aligns your interests with our business objectives. Simply put, when you do better we do better.

5 Key Benefits of Independent Financial Advisors

  1. Customized guidance based on your entire financial picture. Independent advisors are not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products. So whether you need help with a tax situation or managing assets at multiple places, independent advisors have the freedom to choose the investment option that’s best for you. 

  2. A relationship that’s responsive, attentive, and personal. To offer advice closely aligned with your goals, independent advisors must first build a strong understanding of your situation. As a result, there is a deep focus on building client relationships. And because many of these advisors are entrepreneurs, they hold themselves personally accountable to their clients. 

  3. A fee structure that is simple and transparent. Independent advisors typically charge a fee based on a percentage of assets managed. This fee structure is simple, transparent, and easy to understand. It also gives your advisor an incentive to help grow your assets. When you succeed, your advisor succeeds.

  4. A high level of expertise to support your complex financial needs. Independent advisors can help investors address the variety of complex investment needs that arise when you accumulate significant wealth. Some advisors are specialists in certain investment strategies. Others can assist you with comprehensive services, such as estate planning or borrowing, the sale of a business, and intergenerational wealth transfer.

  5. Your money is held by an independent custodian, not the advisor firm. Independent advisors use independent custodians, such as Charles Schwab and others, to hold and safeguard clients’ assets. This provides a reassuring system of checks and balances—your money is not held by the same person who advises you about how to invest it.

All of these factors help us to build relationships built on trust and accountability, and a commitment to always put your interests first. As fiduciaries, we are able to make your success our top priority.
