Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a Registered Financial Consultant?

A small business and financial expert. A Registered Financial Consultant can help Accredited Investors (usually business owners) manage their assets. Through proper Accounting we can make data driven financial decisions.

What is an Accountant?

Accounting is “the process of recording financial transactions pertaining to a business,” according to Investopedia. We find too many businesses between $500,000 – $5,000,000 do not record their transactions. We created 360+ to fill this need. Additionally, Accredited Investors, High Net Worth & Ultra High Net Worth households need proper Accounting. If transactions are recorded correctly, we can make proactive decisions rather than pay more for reactive resolutions.

Who is your ideal client?

The core client base in our firm is business owners and Baby Boomers. Our clients generally meet the threshold of an Accredited Investor.

Business Owners

Our ideal business owner is an established business looking to find smart strategies with their current revenue. They are looking to lower their tax liabilities and keep more assets in the firm or their family.

Business owners often want to liquidate their business asset for retirement. They are looking for smart strategies on how to receive the cash and reduce their tax liability of receiving their lump sum of money. 360 likes to work with clients producing revenues in the $500,000 – $5,000,000 range.

Baby Boomers

360 will engage households with a soft minimum of $500,000 – $1,500,000 of investable assets preparing to retire. Normally, this is a client 55 years and older preparing to retire. We have also worked with younger clients that have saved well and want to preserve their assets throughout their lives.

*$500,000 is a soft minimum, exceptions can and have been made. Please reach out and let’s discuss your current situation.

What happens if your lead financial consultant leaves the company for any reason?

A contingency plan is an important part of the business for any company. Accountants and Financial Consultants require a properly disclosed contingency plan. We do have a documented succession plan in place if something were to happen to the leadership.

What does hiring a Registered Financial Consultant mean for me?

The 360 team holds the designation of Registered Financial Consultant (RFC) credential from the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants, (IARFC®). Who is a Registered Financial Consultant? All financial planners are not created equal. A RFC is more than a financial planner—he or she is an Accountant with the powerful combination of tax expertise and comprehensive knowledge of financial planning. This knowledge is critical to obtaining the most valuable, objective data driven advice possible.

What is your company policy on the privacy of your clients?

We take confidentiality seriously. Please reference the Consumer Privacy & Security Notice here.
