The Significance of Synergy & Succession
At CFG, each planner has a fully independent business but is still part of a collective that provides compliance oversight, marketing support and collaboration from the entire team. This is relatively unheard of in the competitive landscape of the financial advisory industry, yet it is a keystone to our firm’s success. Our weekly team meetings are an open forum for learning, brainstorming and advice sharing by fellow colleagues who want the best for you and your clients. Serving the best interests of all of our clients is what matters most to each of us.
Each CFP® participates in a succession plan agreement in the event of an unexpected occurrence or the retirement of a CFG planner colleague who does not have a predetermined succession plan. Having this plan ensures that our clients will continue to be served in the exceptional manner to which they are accustomed. The integrity of the firm and each individual planner is paramount to us. You may be looking for a succession plan for yourself and your clients or to be the succession plan solution for another CFP®. As part of our team, we can design a plan that meets your needs.
Dedicated Marketing Team
Our marketing team works for the planners at CFG to promote each planner individually while promoting the brand as a whole. For over twenty years, our planners have hosted Central Florida’s most-listened to financial call in program ‘On The Money.’ In addition, our financial advice podcasts, featured on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart Radio, and locally on WDBO, gives you a free promotion tool while helping listeners in our community. You’ll also be given creative opportunities to promote and feature yourself via our social media channels, radio show and more.
