Total Alignment Wealth Advisors is a private and independent fee-only wealth advisory firm. The firm was established in response to our founding clients' need for one truly independent family advisor. Their vision was that the family advisor should be prohibited from selling financial products and should simply provide wealth advisory services that were complementary to - but not competitive with - the services already provided by their traditional advisors.
Currently, Total Alignment offers three services:
(1) Total Alignment Family CFO -
Designed for high net worth families who are looking to consolidate and delegate all of their wealth planning needs through the use of a single-source expert who would oversee, evaluate and coordinate with other advisors on an ongoing basis.
(2) Total Alignment One-Time Financial Plans -
Designed for those who either anticipate a life event - such as marriage, divorce, death or retirement - or who simply prefer a one-time "check up" review.
(3) Total Alignment TOLI Audit -
Designed for trustees of trusts owning life insurance ("TOLI") who would like to minimize risk of a future lawsuit by having a review of the policies by an advisor with no financial stake as to whether policies are retained or replaced.
