PSG Success Stories
Case Study # 1: New Planner – Brian Kuhn
Brian graduated from Towson University with a B.S. in Business Administration and a minor in English and began his career in the financial industry straightaway. His main concentrations were on life insurance, annuities, and long term care, for which cold-calling was the primary method of marketing.
After several years, Brian was not happy with the direction and leadership of his firm, so he decided to join PSG. Brian was excited at the opportunity to build his own brand and book of business with the goal of helping people reach their objectives regardless of their financial circumstances. He chose PSG because of its professional and extensive infrastructure with an established support and operations team that would allow him to focus on personal and professional growth.
At PSG Brian became more familiar and knowledgeable as an Advisor through the guidance and direction of other successful planners. PSG introduced him to the holistic approach to financial planning and also helped him to incorporate asset management and other products into his recommendations for implementation.
Brian now serves as the manager of a division within Planning Solutions Group named PSG Clarity, a unique planning team that focuses on affordable and efficient financial planning. Brian and his team are experiencing an average annualized growth of 30% since he joined PSG.
Case Study # 2: Experienced Planner – Scott Gomsak
After 18+ years as a financial advisor for various financial institutions, Scott Gomsak decided to join Planning Solutions Group in 2013. Although business was good, production was healthy and Scott was happy with the independent structure of his business, he found that his revenue and asset growth had plateaued.
In order to grow and expand his business, he needed to make a change. In early 2013 after researching multiple options and firms, Scott met with Planning Solutions Group. After his first meeting with the management team, he felt confident that PSG met all the criteria he had determined were critical to making a successful transition and ultimately capitalizing on his life’s work.
“Planning Solutions Group had the resources and capabilities of a large firm, while maintaining the small independent firm culture I and my clients had become accustomed to.” Scott had the desire to shift his practice to more of a fee-based advisory structure, but found it to be very time consuming and challenging managing the fee-based accounts, meeting with existing clients, handling new account paperwork and servicing existing clients. The transition team seamlessly and efficiently helped to convert all of Scott’s client’s accounts for him. PSG’s turn-key asset management process, implemented and managed by the Investment Management Team, gave Scott peace-of-mind that his accounts were being supervised while transitioning to the advisory platform. By Scott’s 2nd anniversary his intuition about PSG being the right firm for him and his clients came to fruition as his fee based assets had tripled.
Utilizing the resources and intellectual capital at PSG has allowed Scott to spend more time meeting with clients, developing deeper relationships, and assisting clients with their full range of financial planning needs. As Scott noted, “this has resulted in better relationships with my clients, more business from existing clients, and new business referrals.”
