A Team Approach

We believe that a coordinated effort among our clients’ accounting and legal advisors ensures that plans are professionally orchestrated, integrated and implemented. In the process of working with us, you will soon learn that developing strategic partnerships with other professionals is a key part of our philosophy and we go out of our way to refer qualified clients to our strategic partners when appropriate.

We facilitate this team approach through our LifePrint™ planning process which enables the advisory team to provide input and have access to the client’s comprehensive financial plan and related documents.

An Independent Technical Resource

Our strategic partnerships with other advisors may also involve serving as an independent and confidential resource to address your clients’ financial planning needs. Services can be provided behind the scenes through your firm or via direct client interface – on a case-by-case basis. Simply put, our goal is to add to your credibility – through technical intelligence and comprehensive resources – delivered objectively, promptly and thoroughly.


  • Review and analysis of life insurance contracts, illustrations and pricing decisions
  • Evaluation of insurance company strength and performance
  • Expert testimony and professional support for litigation involving life insurance
  • Identification of life settlement options and their probable costs
  • Second opinion underwriting consulting to help avoid the risk of being denied coverage or the surprise of receiving a premium offer significantly higher than planned
  • Private briefings, CPE and CLE for accountants and attorneys on insurance issues to assist with advisor due diligence

Many of our planning strategies include tax-sensitive issues. As a result, we place high importance on coordinating our efforts with tax advisors to provide insight into areas impacting a client’s retirement, financial, business and estate planning issues.

Through our years of partnering with CPAs, we understand the importance of objectivity, confidentiality, transparency and competency for the engagement in our working relationship. As a result, we are regularly called upon by accountants to provide resources and technical support. At the same time, our practice is to proactively involve tax advisors in our process of developing and implementing planning strategies for clients in areas such as:

  • Personal and Business Income Tax Planning
  • Sale or Purchase of a Closely-Held Business

Helping Organizations Increase Donor Confidence, Trust and Giving

Since 2005, Wealth Impact Partners has shared our specialized LifePrint™ expertise with non-profit and charitable organizations throughout our region. We have helped organizations increase donor confidence and trust, while assisting individuals with an affinity for the organization to discover and “activate” their full capacity for philanthropic giving. As a result of these engagements, organizations have realized more substantial and recurring gifts that support their sustainability and endowment.

Building on this work, our ActivateLegacy program is now a separate consulting company that helps nonprofit and charitable organizations with small, non-specialized development staffs implement more effective, donor-centric gift planning strategies. ActivateLegacy offers a comprehensive and cost-effective suite of content, training, and services available through personal consulting and online resources.
