At Gallagher Wealth Management we believe that everyone deserves a financial plan and that having a financial plan is essential to any investment plan. Because of this, we offer a foundational financial plan at no additional cost. We ask the right questions. We listen, so we can know you. We understand your needs, your concerns, and help to clearly define your financial goals. We then develop a path to pursue your goals.
While our foundational financial plan is a great resource, it may not be adequate for every client. For our clients that have a substantial net worth, are high income earners, or own a successful business we recommend a more comprehensive financial plan which is available for a fee.
Our comprehensive financial plan evaluates every aspect of your finances. We review all bank statements, investment statements, tax returns, insurance policies, each asset and liability, we examine everything. Our comprehensive financial plan includes, but is not limited to cash flow analysis, retirement planning, tax management, estate planning, risk management, investment management, insurance, debt structure, college planning, and complex life issues. Upon review of your financial plan we will work collaboratively with your legal, tax, and insurance teams to implement your financial strategies.
Our business is providing advice and implementing strategies, not selling products. We prefer the benefits and flexibility of competitive fee-based investing. Gallagher Wealth Management offers portfolio management services and access to many of the nation's renowned, professional money managers through fee-based compensation arrangements. We consider this approach to be more objective because our compensation is tied to the long-term success of your portfolio. It also enables us to hire and fire money managers, shift allocations, and adjust to the ever-changing markets without incurring transaction fees or being confined to a particular fund family. This cost-effective program is designed to help you pursue your financial goals.
You have spent a lifetime building your legacy. Gallagher Wealth Management guides families to review, develop, and implement personalized estate-planning strategies. We work collaboratively with your tax, legal, and insurance professionals to view your estate plan from all angles, identify opportunities and avoid strategic mistakes, in order to help you carry out your legacy. Taking action today with your professional advisors could protect your beneficiaries from considerable delays, fees, and taxes.
We help our clients with a variety of cost-effective trust strategies to suit their specific needs and desires, including: Revocable Living Trust, Credit Shelter Bypass Trust, Qualified Terminable Interest Property Trust, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust, Charitable Trust, and Dynasty Trust. If you choose to invest trust assets through us, you may benefit from reduced trust management fees and administrative fees.
Furthermore, we offer professional trust management, an institutional trustee, and successor institutional trustee services through The Private Trust Company.
Protecting your assets and financial plan from the unexpected is a crucial component of wealth management. We review our client’s insurance needs and existing insurance policies.

We can help you to decide which type of account is the right fit for you and if a Roth IRA conversion makes sense for your retirement goals.
Paying for college may feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. However, it is a big task and requires planning. The best approach is to start when your child is young and invest consistently. Gallagher Wealth Management can help you to design an education savings plan for your goals and budget to help a child or grandchild afford college by utilizing qualified state tuition programs, also called 529 college savings programs. 529 Plans allow you to invest into a tax advantage savings plan. Taxes are deferred while invested in the plan and as long as the funds are utilized to pay for qualified post-secondary education expenses or private school grades K-12, the distributions are tax free.
