Legacy Companies, LLC
The Legacy Companies train financial advisors in "Values-Based Planning." Developed together with Paul Schervish this is a clearly thought out program based upon worthwhile principles, standards and qualities and designed for the accumulation, management and transfer of everything one owns. Through this process, clients gain complete confidence in their financial plan as their financial affairs and personal values become aligned. This kind of discernment process is one we feel is central to a donor's making decisions about philanthropy and the disbursement of wealth.
