#1 – Introducing the Bestgate Wealth Blog
Welcome to the Bestgate Advisors blog! Our first post will address the Who, the Why, and the How of Bestgate.
WHO WE ARE
Bestgate Wealth Advisors is a fee-only fiduciary wealth management and financial advisory firm with a specialized focus on holistic financial and tax planning.
Founded by a like-minded group of CPAs, attorneys, and certified financial planner™ practitioners, Bestgate incorporates true tax planning into our clients’ financial plans and portfolios. Our comprehensive tax knowledge base and extensive experience-something most financial advisors don’t offer-provides our clients with optimized results for their unique situations.
WHY WE CREATED BESTGATE WEALTH
As trusted tax advisors to our clients, we all too often discovered some of their financial advisors provided advice that was inaccurate and incomplete, or did not provide any advice at all. Sometimes we learned of events after the fact, when we could have saved tons in taxes had we known in advance. Even the better qualified advisors didn’t have the deep level of tax expertise that their clients needed. We knew that we could do better.
We created Bestgate to build deeper, more meaningful relationships with our clients, and to positively impact their lives by delivering results oriented financial advice with built-in tax expertise.
HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
We have true expertise in taxation, and we DO provide tax advice. Financial advice is simply not complete if you do not coordinate it with advanced tax planning. We focus on the true rate of return: your after-tax return.
“Tax alpha” is the investor’s ability to outperform by taking advantage of various tax-saving strategies. Using strategies such as Roth conversions, asset location selection, tax rate arbitrage opportunities, and a wide variety of other investment and non-investment related tactics, we help you minimize your tax liability, and we see it all the way through to your tax return preparation or review. The value of this “tax alpha” can be massive, often far exceeding the “investment alpha” of even the very best managers.
We are bringing something innovative, different, and better to the marketplace, and would love the opportunity to show you how.
