Then look no further than the team at Clem Collaborative. We are Charleston wealth advisors committed to redefining wealth for you.
We understand the world of personal finance can be confusing. That is why we are determined to simplify the process as much as possible. The reality is, there are only four things you can do with your money. You can save it, you can spend it, you can pay taxes with it, or you can give it away. The amount of money you put towards each of these options impacts what is available for the other three. And it doesn’t matter how much money you make. What matters is how much of it you keep.
This is why we offer a suite of financial services for our clients. Our holistic approach starts with tax prep and moves through financial planning. Allowing you to move further and faster towards your financial goals.
The team at The Clem Collaborative is more than your average financial advisor in Charleston, SC. We have more than 50 years of combined financial experience and more than a decade in business. Our philosophy is that the U.S. Tax Code provides us with a roadmap for personal wealth creation. Our mission is to use this roadmap to help our clients pursue their financial goals. This allows them to live a life they’ve always dreamed of.
Most of our client relationships begin with filing a tax return. What sets the Clem Collaborative apart from other financial advisors in Charleston, SC is how we approach the process. Our finely honed method allows us to take advantage of every tax savings opportunity. Once the tax return is complete, we shift our focus from tax preparation to tax planning. We will create and implement legal and ethical strategies to reduce the amount of tax you pay in the future. This approach allows you to protect and grow your wealth.
Once your tax strategies are in place, we’ll focus on long term financial planning. Research shows us that despite throwing money into a variety of retirement accounts, most Americans aren’t prepared for retirement. This is largely because they don’t know how much they need to accumulate. Our financial planner will start with the end in mind to create a master goal. Then we help our clients create achievable, trackable targets for along the way.
Besides providing financial planning, we also offer our clients a Virtual Financial Officer. Bookkeeping should not be an afterthought for your business. It is a valuable opportunity to see what is working in your business and what isn’t. And many business owners don’t have the time or knowledge to get the most out of their bookkeeping efforts. Our VFO program provides you with strategic information you need to move your business forward.
Our experience has taught us that almost everyone struggles with a financial bottleneck. This could be too much debt, lack of a workable budget, or disagreements among family members. We also know that these bottlenecks can get in the way of true wealth creation. That is why we also offer money coaching. This allows us to help our clients identify and defeat their financial demons once and for all and achieve their goals.
If you are one of the millions of Americans behind in paying your taxes, we are here for you. We understand that most people aren’t looking for a free ride or a way to shirk their duty. Rather, they are afraid of the financial pain of a true resolution. Our team will provide you with truthful answers and workable solutions. Allowing you to put the past behind you and build a solid foundation for the future.
