Happy National Mountain Climbing Day!

Did you know that some of the world's greatest mountaineers relied on sherpas? Sherpas have been credited with high achievements for assisting mountaineers throughout history. In the financial world, we often see the same correlation with retirees trying to reach their goals at a certain age. But without the guidance of experienced financial advisors they end up running out of money during their retirement.

When you bring on a trusted financial advisor, you're not handing off your nest egg and the control that comes with it. Instead, you can think of it as having a financial sherpa by your side to guide you through planning for retirement. Financial sherpas can help you reach the summit in all financial aspects.

Here’s what you need to know about Financial Sherpas with Agemy Financial Strategies.

Financial Sherpas

A Financial Sherpa is a financial services professional who believes in a contrarian philosophy of how to grow and protect your wealth. Wealth you will ultimately need for your retirement, hence the importance of protection.

Throughout life, you may need more help or more focus towards a certain aspect of it. For example the older you become the more likely you will need to have a will and estate plan in place so your family has a roadmap to your finances, should the unexpected occur. 

You may need a portion of your wealth to fund your children's education, invest in your business or to purchase a piece of property. Hence the importance of liquidity. It is our belief that you are ultimately better served focusing your attention on Distribution & Protection strategies as opposed to simply Accumulation ones.
