About Taylor Financial Group
We educate and empower our clients to take control of their future in a “SMART” (Save More After Retirement Taxes) way.
Our goal at Taylor Financial Group, LLC is to decrease our clients’ taxes as much as possible in retirement in order to build wealth during their lifetime (and for generations to come).
Taylor Financial Group, LLC is an independent wealth management firm located in Franklin Lakes, NJ that specializes in serving affluent women and their families, high net worth families, and small business owners. We have more than twenty years of experience in wealth management and use our diverse tax and legal background to provide objective, comprehensive, and unique financial solutions to all of our clients.
We view your wealth as a tool to help you get the things you want out of life.
We love what we do and are deeply committed to every single client.
Because we serve less than 100 families, every client has a personal relationship with our team and they are all special to us. Our lead wealth advisor and founder, Debra Taylor, is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) by training and has thus been able to uniquely prioritize retirement and tax planning in her practice over the last twenty years.
We use this experience to build customized tax-efficient retirement plans that can help decrease tax bills in retirement and help our clients keep more money in their pockets.
Based on her tax training, Debbie is experienced in taxes and retirement planning. She has published many articles in this area for other financial professionals, she is often quoted in national publications, and she speaks frequently to industry groups on the “dos and don’ts” of retirement and tax planning.
How Our Services Help You
At Taylor Financial Group, we pride ourselves on helping solve our clients’ challenges by providing customized financial planning services.
No two individuals or families are alike, and neither is their financial plan. We take the time to learn about your needs and goals, and then create a customized road map to help get you there. How do we do that? We consider your various resources, along with your needs (and dreams), and pull it all together in a way that makes sense to you.
While we offer a broad range of services, we are especially proud of our SMART (Saving More After Retirement Taxes) services. SMART retirement and tax planning services help to reduce your taxes in retirement while extending the life of your nest egg. Depending on the stage of retirement that you are in (pre-retirement, early retirement, middle retirement, or late retirement), there are different tax strategies that we can use to help you make the most of your money. In short, to be SMART, you need a customized retirement and tax plan.
Is Taylor Financial Group a Fiduciary?
At Taylor Financial Group, we have been acting as fiduciaries for over 20 years.
Fiduciaries may be legally obligated to place the client’s interest ahead of their own in certain instances. Fiduciaries are also expected to act more transparently by disclosing their fees and how they are compensated, among other things.
We have and will always serve our clients with their best interests at heart. In fact, our founder, Debbie Taylor, and our entire team, have committed to the Fiduciary Principles created by the Committee For the Fiduciary Standard, as a promise and constant reminder to our clients that we will always do what’s right for you.
Five Core Principles:
- Put the client’s best interests first;
- Act with prudence, that is, with the skill, care, diligence and good judgment of a professional;
- Do not mislead clients–provide conspicuous, full and fair disclosure of all important facts;
- Avoid conflicts of interest;
- Fully disclose and fairly manage, in the client’s favor, unavoidable conflicts.
We Serve High Net Worth Families
Most financial advisors provide wealth management and financial planning to a wide range of clients, but only a handful of advisors exclusively serve high net worth individuals and families.
This is because high net worth clients have specialized needs and goals. Whether it is tax or estate planning, establishing a legacy, or creating a “rainy day fund,” our tax and legal background enable us to uniquely serve our clients. At Taylor Financial Group, we intentionally limit our focus to high net worth clients so that we can provide our clients with the appropriate attention and highest level of service possible.
Planning for High Net Worth Individuals & Families
In order to provide the most comprehensive advice and service to our clients, we work hard to match our clients’ assets with investment strategies that might best meet their needs and help them accomplish their goals. More than that, we learn about our clients’ families – spouses, parents, children and grandchildren – so that we can help guide their wealth and their wishes across generations. Our experience has revealed that building relationships with the entire family as they pursue wealth across generations can pave the way for the most comprehensive planning.
Different clients want different services, depending on what is happening in their lives at any given time. That’s why we offer an extensive menu of services to our high net worth clients, which you can view by clicking here. We are deeply committed to every single client and purposely serve less than 100 families, so that we can maintain a personal relationship with each and every one of them. No matter how simple or complex your needs, we are prepared to help you plan for your future.
As investors, we would all like to effortlessly beat the markets, buying and selling investments based on brilliant timing, instinct and a little luck. But most of us realize it’s not that easy.
