"Your Goals - Your Interest - Our Mission"
Today’s economic environment presents challenges. But along with these challenges, there are opportunities and rewards for those who can identify long-term trends.
Whether you’re less than satisfied with your current advisor, interest rate or returns—facing retirement—or are looking to better understand certain investment ideas, we can help you address your most pressing investment needs and concerns.
First - we listen.
Our priority is your overall financial success. We want to learn more about your personal situation and identify your needs and goals so we can learn what's right for you. Open and honest communication is the cornerstone of any successful, long-term relationship. Often, industry-driven jargon gets in the way of understanding. We do our best to avoid it.
Everyone is different.
Our site is filled with educational videos, articles and calculators from the very straight-forward to the very complex. All are designed to help you learn more about earning interest, retirement income, tax-free income, retirement plans, investments, 529 college savings plans, wealth transfer, long-term care, insurance needs, estate planning and more. While brief, they are informative.
As you search our website, send me a note with any questions you may have about any particular investment concept, product or interest producing idea that may better serve you. We'll get back to you quickly with a thoughtful answer. If you'd prefer, simply give us a call at (812) 748-9005.
Transfer your accounts.
Yes; we can transfer your existing brokerage accounts, pensions, IRAs, annuities, 401(k) or CDs without causing discomfort for you or the broker/rep/employee at the bank or brokerage firm where your accounts are currently held. Sadly, many won't even notice. In fact, it's quite simple. Just call or come in to our offices. We'll walk you through it.
No one, other than those whom you deem to be of 'need to know' basis, will ever know of your accounts or the investments within your account(s) at Bennett & Bennett unless you give us explicit direction otherwise.
