Callahan Financial Planning is committed to keeping your money and information safe.
We exist to provide a clear financial plan and investment advice to our clients without pushing the need to purchase an investment or buy a product. Registered investment advisors are held to a higher standard than stockbrokers when it comes to putting investor’s interests first and doing the right thing for their clients. Independent registered investment advisors have a fiduciary duty to their clients, which means they must:
- Act in the best interest of their client
- Disclose all conflicts of interest
- Abide by a code of ethics
- Observe procedures regarding the allocation of investment opportunities
- Have policies regarding maintenance of brokerage accounts
Clients that receive investment advice from Callahan Financial Planning may receive discretionary investment management services. When offering this service, client assets will be safely held with an independent brokerage. Brokerages recommended by Callahan Financial Planning are members of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), and their affiliated entities may also provide bank deposits that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
Additional Information on Insurance and Protection Programs: Callahan Financial Planning is not affiliated with the financial institution(s) we may recommend for your assets. Our role is that of an independent advisor, representing only our client’s interest in the direction, placement and ongoing management of assets. Callahan Financial Planning does not have custody of client assets.
