Thank you for this opportunity to introduce our firm to you.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation By Freedman Financial

Hiring a financial planner is an important decision in your life and must be built on a foundation of trust. We seek solely to build life-long relationships with our clients and the enclosed “Core Values and Beliefs” sheet embodies our commitment to you.

Generally, an initial consultation lasts sixty to ninety minutes. This confidential conversation is complimentary to you as we believe it is critical that you find a financial planning firm that not only listens well and asks the right questions; but one that you believe will meet (and hopefully exceed) your expectations.

During our meeting you can expect us to ask questions about your goals, dreams and aspirations. Please begin thinking about “what’s important to you” and how your quality of life could improve if “X”, “Y” and “Z” were addressed.

Your enclosed information kit has been designed to help you gain an overview of the services and background our firm offers, but even more importantly it allows you to begin organizing quantitative components that impact your personal financial life. Please review the questionnaire carefully and try to complete the form, in advance of our initial meeting.


  • Any Estate Planning Documents such as, Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, etc.
  • Endorsement Pages for Life, Disability, Auto, Homeowners and Personal Insurance
  • One Month’s Pay Stubs
  • Employee Benefit booklet(s)
  • Current Investment, Insurance and Bank Statements
  • Your most recent tax return

On behalf of the entire team at Freedman Financial, thank you for your inquiry. We look forward to building a long and successful financial planning relationship with you.

Please contact us at your earliest convenience to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.
