A few examples:

I consider myself a fervent advocate of the financial planning approach so I congratulate Planist for putting together a competent team of professional, tools and expertise. I’ve been using Planist services for more than 18 months and I can agree that clients’ benefits from these financial plans are enchanted by the results and presentation. Using Planist has helped me solidify my client relationships, close important cases, and establish the credibility of my service offering within my firm.

I’ve been using Planist to prepare comprehensive strategic financial plans for my clients over the past 1 1/2 years. I expect that over 50% of my income has been derived from clients who have benefited from this service. I see a real advantage to review a client’s financial situation from a very objective perspective and most times offering unique solutions and strategies to address their needs for wealth accumulation and protection, tax efficient retirement, estate planning, and business succession planning. I would recommend Planist’s services to any advisor looking to move to the next level of financial planning for their clients.

Great experience for both the MGA and the advisor.

I introduced Planist to my advisors in 2005. Since then, we’ve had some great success with this tool.

Completing the FNA (Financial Needs Analysis) with the clients is a great experience. It makes the clients take a serious look at their situation and have an honest and frank discussion that they most likely would have never had. The clients are very impressed by the professionalism of the reports produced by Planist and they are generally very comfortable that the recommendations fit their situation to a tee.

In one particular case, my son Chris, who is an advisor with our company, was able to do wonders and the commission earned was enough to pay for the subscription to Planist services for many, many years.

Planist is an incredible tool. The clients are happy, the advisor is happy, and the MGA (me) is happy.
