Risk Management

For many, a comprehensive financial plan includes risk management – considering if you have the insurance you need to protect you, your property, and your family.

A comprehensive financial plan recognizes, respects, and accounts for risk. You’ve built a life worth protecting – your family, your income, your assets, your wealth, and your legacy. One of the most effective ways of leveraging risk is through the use of insurance – protecting the things you cherish most.

A Fee-Only Fiduciary Advisor

One of the frequent knocks on insurance is the way that it’s sold. Asset protection and proper planning sometime become secondary to sales goals and commissions.

Annex Wealth Management operates as a fiduciary advisor. The fees our clients pay for comprehensive financial planning include a thorough examination of risk management. So, if you purchase insurance from a professional we recommend, all profits paid to us from those insurance sales will go directly to the Annex Charitable Foundation supporting non-profit “difference makers” in our community.
