How Singular Wealth Management focuses on the unique needs of physicians


When it comes to financial planning, physicians have different concerns that most individuals.

With the economic stress posed by a complicated and an unpredictable health-care system, more physicians may be discovering that they are behind where they would hope to be in retirement planning and financial planning. Thus, when it comes to financial planning, physicians have different concerns that most individuals.

For instance, physicians enter the workforce at a much later stage in life (up to a decade later in most circumstances). They are faced with making important financial, career and life planning decisions at a time when they have fewer income-producing years than their nonmedical contemporaries. Although practicing physicians earn top dollars, yet, this high income does not reliably translate to a higher net worth and the freedom wealth buys.

These circumstances require a well-defined plan, tailored to the measurement of each individual, and for that reason, singular wealth management may answer these needs.

Singular Wealth Management is not for everyone; not meant to be. It is for investors who are not seeking a conventional view of asset allocation; not seeking to utilizing ready to go templates, tweaking them here and there and calling this a “customized” solution. Singular wealth management is a practice absent of templates, absent of cookie cutter solutions; a practice focused exclusively on singular needs. This strategy is not for those who are looking to be average, but those who are interested in seeing the bigger picture.

There are two general schools of thought regarding the way financial planning is conducted; cash flow orientation which is sometimes known as the client centered approach and goal-based planning which focuses on money management techniques by identifying the specific funding liability of each goal. When creating a financial plan and building client’s portfolio, my focus distinguishes between client’s objective risk vs the subjective risk, and so, the ‘no templates’ approach becomes a material factor. For example, ‘subjective risk’ considers the investor’s attitudes and past experience with investments, while ‘objective risk’ looks at investors risk capacity rather than the willingness to engage in something in which outcomes may potentially be negative. ‘Objective risk’ can be viewed as financial capacity and ‘subjective risk” as emotional capacity in participating in the ups and downs of the markets. Utilizing ‘Probability of success analysis’ provides a valuable perspective for both.
