CONNECTING YOUR BUSINESS SUCCESs
WITH PERSONAL WEALTH
For three decades, Scott Jones has specialized in helping Business Owners grow, protect and preserve their most important asset—their business—while integrating it with a plan to achieve the Owner’s personal financial objectives.
As financial planners who work with business owners as well as families, our purpose is to help you simplify your life, plan your financial journey, and reach your destination—whether you want to accumulate wealth for a specific goal, ensure the continuation of your business, minimize taxes, plan for retirement, or create an employee and executive benefit program to attract and retain your best employees.
AN EMPHASIS ON
BUSINESS OWNER SOLUTIONS
Our integrated approach to Business Planning involves utilizing the business’s tax, legal and financial capabilities to efficiently fund the Owner’s long term strategies and goals—with a minimum impact on cash flow and the balance sheet.
DOES YOUR RIGHT HAND KNOW WHAT YOUR LEFT HAND IS DOING?
Business Owners face a myriad of choices and issues concerning their business and personal financial needs. Often, there has been significant planning completed for both areas, but it is rarely integrated effectively. At Scott Jones Financial, we help Owners integrate the pieces of their financial puzzle to achieve the optimum outcome based on their specific goals.
FIRST THINGS FIRST
Scott Jones Financial focuses the engagement on our client’s business first. We do this because most Owner’s business interests make up the majority of their personal net worth. The business is also where the majority of potential tax efficiencies reside. Yet, it is typically where the least amount of planning has been done to integrate the business with the Owner’s personal goals.
PLANNING BASED APPROACH
To help facilitate the effective integration of business and personal planning, we created the Business of Life Process™. It involves working closely with you and your other advisors to identify issues, review alternatives, recommend solutions, and manage implementation with meticulous attention. The process focuses on the three key areas of a Business Owner’s financial life— Business Planning, Personal Planning and Wealth Transfer.
WE OFFER A BROAD RANGE OF BUSINESS & PERSONAL WEALTH PLANNING SERVICES
CUSTOMIZED & INTEGRATED
Our integrated approach to Business Planning involves utilizing the business’s tax, legal and financial capabilities to efficiently fund the Owner’s long-term strategies and goals with a minimum impact on cash flow and the balance sheet.
We integrate the Owner’s Personal Planning into the process by utilizing assets and cash flow to provide the desired lifestyle at a point in the future. Our comprehensive process encompasses Wealth Accumulation, Retirement Planning and Wealth Transfer.
A TEAM APPROACH
FOR OPTIMIZING RESULTS
Successful Business Owners understand that the complexities of running a business require integrated support from a coordinated team to achieve the best results. Yet, many Owners rarely benefit from having all of their financial and legal advisors in the same room, working off the same page, discussing the issues and solutions to help them achieve both business and personal financial goals.
That’s why Scott Jones Financial takes a proactive team approach to coordinating with your other advisors. We work as part of your advisory team to develop, implement and manage the various processes affecting your business and personal finances.
MAKE US WHO WE ARE
At Scott Jones Financial, you’ll find passionate people from a variety of financial disciplines working together to provide seamless, tax-efficient solutions for optimizing your business and personal financial affairs.
ONE SIMPLE RULE
GUIDES ALL WE DO
The Golden Rule Marble, encircled with a band bearing the inscription – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matthew 7:12) – was created by Jesse Shwayder in 1910 as a timeless symbol for living, upon which he founded the Samsonite Corporation.
Fifty years ago, the founder of our partner firm, Valmark Financial Group, was given the Golden Rule Marble which became an enduring touchstone guiding the firm toward the highest ethical standards in all of its dealings.
When Scott Jones Financial joined the Valmark family of firms, the Golden Rule Marble was presented to us as a guiding principle in all of our practices:
- Serving as an industry model for relationships built on trust and mutual respect
- Addressing the financial needs of our clients with innovative, collaborative solutions
- Safeguarding clients’ best interests at all times
Watch this short video to learn how we “Bring the Golden Rule to Life”…in the lives of our clients and in all that we do.
