Welcome to Creative Planning

COMPREHENSIVE WEALTH MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS FOR INTEGRITAS

 

We have partnered with Creative Planning to meet the comprehensive wealth management needs of our physicians in the areas of investments, taxes, estate planning, personal risk, and more, so you can dedicate more time to your patients and your communities.

 

Creative Planning is one of the largest and most recognized wealth management firms in the country, most notably the #1 ranking by Barron’s, Forbes, and CNBC. They own a law firm, an accounting firm, a trust company and more, to support the comprehensive wealth management needs of their clients. And these entities all work in tandem to support the belief that investment performance is what you get after accounting for risk, fees, and taxes.

 

Being part of the Integritas family means you have access to a suite of services at a negotiated rate. Whether you are fresh out of medical school, an industry veteran, or approaching retirement, our partners at Creative Planning can help you create a comprehensive and customized solution to help in the areas of investments, taxes, asset protection, estate planning, insurance, and more. You can take full advantage of all their services, or just the ones you need today.

Getting Started

We utilize a simple three step process to get your entire financial affairs on the right track:

 

  1. Diagnose – We will take all the time necessary to learn about you both personally and professionally. We’ll talk about investments, tax, legal, personal risk, and more, so we can find something that makes sense, feels right, and is tailor made for you.

 

  1. Prescribe – The best prescription should directly address your needs and pain points while trying to limit the amount of adverse side effects. Your customized and comprehensive financial plan includes investment, tax, and estate planning elements.  We strive for the best rate of return after accounting for risk, fees, and taxes.

 

  1. Check-Ups – Staying in good financial health requires we communicate regularly and stay in front of all potential issues. This will include consistent communication, annual reviews, and any updates in your personal or work life.

Pain Points for Physicians

Taxes

Nobody likes paying taxes, especially physicians. There are many ways to mitigate taxes depending on your situation. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

    • How should I file my taxes, and under what filing status?
    • Should I contribute to a 401(k), IRA, or other? What is best for my taxes?
    • How do I invest outside of my retirement accounts for maximum tax benefit?
    • How do I buy real estate and maximize all the associated tax advantages?
    • How do I minimize what I pay in estate taxes?
    • How do I make charitable donations and maximize the benefit?
    • What else do I need to be doing to maximize all my tax benefits?

 

Investments

Most physicians lack the time, desire, and expertise to maximize their high earnings potential. And performance must be viewed as the best rate of return after accounting for risk, fees and taxes. Physicians often have far more complexity than your typical investor, which means the need to maximize all areas of opportunities are greater.

    • Investment strategy aligned to tax situation and legal complexities
    • Proper asset placement and active tax-loss harvesting
    • Stock and Bond portfolio aligned to real estate and other investments
    • Retirement income strategy focused on total-return approach to maximize taxes

 

Personal Risk

Being in a prominent profession may put you at greater risk of lawsuits from creditors, marriage, divorce, and other unplanned events.

    • Estate planning and entity creation for personal and business needs
    • Complex Trusts for unique family situations, business needs, and real estate
    • Insurance when a financial or legal gap may present itself
