You deserve to understand what’s happening with your money.

Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.

At Bender Financial Services, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.

First, we’re going to get to know you and discuss what’s most important to you. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve with this money. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to pursue those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.

We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While each family gets a personalized allocation strategy, we’ve helped thousands of families navigate their complex financial needs and guided them through life’s major decisions.

As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your lives. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – as much or as little information as you’d like.

Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at Bender Financial Services, we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.

Why “Staying the Course” is Difficult for ...

By: Benjamin Bender, CFP® President and Wealth Advisor, Bender Financial Services Having been a financial advisor for 17 years, I have experienced several volatile markets.  The volatility we are currently experiencing is due to the Covid-19 outbreak.  Obviously, my position as a financial advisor does not qualify me to assess the public health impact of Covid-19.  However, I feel confident in asserting that (1) the current economic hardships will conclude at some point in the future, and (2) staying invested in a high-quality, diversified portfolio is still investors’ best path to achieve their long-term goals.  The second point here could...read the full article

  • Caring for Aging Parents – What to Consider – Part 2

    By: Benjamin Bender, CFP® President and Wealth Advisor, Bender Financial Services In Part 1 of this blog on Caring for Aging Parents, I discussed three interpersonal dynamics that I frequently observe between my clients and their families.  I then outlined different approaches or considerations that might help alleviate friction or frustration that often times results from caring for aging parents.  In my practice, sometimes the aging parent is my client and other times my clients come to me for advice regarding their aging parent.  These conversations are common, I believe, for two reasons: (1) we emphasize to our clients the …Read more
