What is the Holistic Plan?
The holistic financial plan is an integrated approach to coordinating all key areas of your financial life, including:
- Wealth Management
- Retirement Planning
- Tax Planning & Preparation
- Financial Education
The holistic advisors at CLP Financial Group will regularly review each of these areas with the appropriately licensed team members to ensure everything is working together in synergy towards your specific goals.
Why Do I Need The Holistic Plan?
The ultra-high net worth investors have had the benefit of coordinated financial planning for years; however, the middle class and middle-class millionaires who need holistic planning the most, unfortunately, have not benefited from this same level of service. Being the most vulnerable to economic and legislative changes, the stakes are considerably higher with the risk of running out of money due to poor planning, particularly in retirement.
By creating the holistic plan, you will optimize all assets to work collectively towards your goals, while also reducing critical inefficiencies, including:
- Gaps in coverage
- Overlap or overexposure in investments
- Tax inefficiencies and missed savings opportunities
- Failure to identify and reach your goals to provide the income you need throughout your lifetime
- Time and communication disconnect as you work to align various strategies between professionals
- Improper or inconsistent investment strategies, or
- Missing essential legal documents that can cost your loved ones significant time and money in the event of death or disability

The Bucket Plan® Philosophy?
A strategic, structured approach to bucketing assets for today's financial dangers and challenges.
The old way of investing for retirement was to keep a little pile of money at the bank and the rest of your money in a bigger pile of money in investments and hope that it would last a lifetime.
However, today market risk, interest rate risk and sequence of returns risk are the three biggest dangers facing investors at or near retirement, and a more sophisticated planning philosophy is essential to stretch retirement dollars to cover their many needs throughout the duration of retirement. For this purpose, we have developed The Bucket Plan® philosophy to segment money into three different buckets based on your investment time horizon, volatility tolerance and income needs.
The Money Cycle
The Money Cycle is something that we all go through during our liftime, and there are three phases: accumulation, preservation, and distribution. Watch this video to learn more.
