Financial Planning for Physicians

Financial planning and investment management for your unique situation

Financial Planning & Investment Management for Physicians and Healthcare shows doctors and nurses standing in unison.

Financial planning for physicians and doctors is a specialized area of practice.  It requires an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the unique financial challenges facing the healthcare industry.

Why financial planning for physicians and healthcare providers is different

Physicians and members of the medical field face unique financial challenges when it comes to their planning.  Because of the earnings time gap from a delayed entry into the workforce, and the challenge of paying back hefty student loan debt, you need professional financial advice that covers mid-life household and family expenses, while helping to ensure you avoid a shortfall at retirement.  Having clients that work in the industry, we have direct experience with the often complicated benefit and compensation packages. Plus, we understand and work around how busy your schedule can be.

You may also need business planning for your practice, or you may need a combination of both personal and business planning.  We work with physicians, veterinarians, dentists, nurses, executives, and other healthcare providers by helping them simplify the financial complexities of their lives, whatever their goals and career stage.  As your personal CFO, we partner with you to create a personalized plan that adapts with you as your life and career advance, or as your practice grows.
