About

Holman Wealth Management

 

Comprehensive Financial Planning

 

We offer complimentary financial planning to every investment client.  Our high-level tools are designed to yield in-depth information.  Our certified financial planner creates an actionable plan from your financial data that allows clients to adjust their approach to their key financial issues and enables them to realize better financial outcomes.

 

You will receive a 10-15 page financial planning report with "to-dos" to improve your lifestyle.  There is an assessment of whether or not you have enough resources to last throughout your lifetime.  We will go over improvements you can make to put you on the path to reaching your goals, primarily in the areas of cash flow, debt repayment, investment returns, insurance, taxes, and estate issues.

 

We provide recommendations for improving your workplace retirement accounts, and for optimizing your company benefits package.  

 

We will monitor, assess and discuss your plan progress with you throughout your tenure with us.

 

Investment Management

 

Our methods of stock market investing go beyond simplistic asset allocation models that produce below average results.

 

If our evaluation of the market is positive, and the likely road ahead looks good, we want to take advantage of investments that in our view have the best appreciation potential, seeking opportunistic profits with moderate-risk holdings.  

 

If in our judgment the markets are risky and showing signs of an upcoming correction, we foresee the danger and take precautions to defend client assets from erosion.  Many others proceed blindly on, suffering the negative consequences springing from no defensive plan, and regretting it later.

We may go partially or fully to cash to preserve investor's capital and not give our profits back to the market.  Or, we may take protective, defensive actions to keep you on the path to reaching your goals.

The stewardship principle teaches us that it is just as important to be a concerned risk-avoider, as it is to be an opportunistic risk-taker.  

 

We want to explain how we go about doing all that.  You could start with a review of our Services tab.  You probably will want to call us or email us - see the Contact tab. You can set up a phone call, an online video meeting or an in-person appointment to discuss how we work for clients.
