How We Serve You

As your personal financial advocates, our most important task is to guide you through opportunities and challenges, utilizing our advisory services to make your financial journey easier.

Financial Planning

Making financial and investment decisions without an integrated financial plan is like trying to put the pieces of a puzzle together without looking at the box top— it’s hard to know where the pieces fit if you lack a clear vision.

Utilizing a comprehensive approach, our financial planning services help you crystallize your vision for your future. We enable you to put the pieces of your financial puzzle together so you can make decisions with confidence and clarity of purpose.

To that end, we apply our vast experience, expertise, and resources to each client, developing a comprehensive, fully integrated plan that inspires action and confidence.

Our financial planning process guides you through six steps that are used at the outset of our relationship and each time your plan is reviewed:

  1. Discovery: Clearly define your goals, priorities, and concerns.
  2. Assessment: Review your current circumstances to determine where you are in relation to your goals.
  3. Analyze: Utilizing assumptions based on your risk profile, determine what it will take to achieve your goals.
  4. Identify: Determine the most appropriate financial planning strategies and investment options.
  5. Implement: Select the specific financial solutions and investment options and work with your advisors to fully implement them.
  6. Monitor and measure: Review your plan regularly to reflect changing circumstances and make necessary adjustments to ensure you remain on track. 

Retirement Income Planning

If retirement planning were simply about accumulating capital, it would be fairly straightforward—find your number, save systematically, and target your goal. However, on the other side of the retirement plan equation are your cash flow planning needs and determining how your retirement assets will translate into a desired lifestyle for 30 years or more.

Our retirement income strategies factor in many variables and the compounded risks of longevity, inflation, and taxation to protect your lifestyle while creating lifetime income sufficiency.

We work with you to clearly define your vision of retirement and then combine the best retirement savings vehicles with an appropriate investment strategy that emphasizes safety over risk. And, with our special expertise in taxation, we place a greater emphasis on how to achieve optimal tax diversification of your retirement income to create greater lifetime income sufficiency.

Investment Planning

With neither the time nor the knowledge to navigate the dynamic and complex investment waters, many people have opted out of investing their funds; or worse, they’ve opted in, but they lack the discipline necessary to keep their emotions at bay. In either case, the results can be catastrophic for anyone with ambitions for a secure retirement.

Through our investment management services, we work individually with each client to develop a long-term investment strategy tailored to their specific objectives and risk profile. With an optimally diversified portfolio of investments, our clients achieve the proper tradeoff between risk and return, allowing them to invest with comfort and confidence.

Tax Planning

Tax filing time should be used as an opportunity to assess where you are financially and prepare for the year to come, and—where opportunities exist—pay as little in taxes as is necessary. Having an understanding of the intricacies of the taxation process can save most families a lot of time and money.

ARQ Wealth Advisors have the expertise to help you understand the tax implications of your financial decisions and apply the tax code to take advantage of tax-saving opportunities. This will ensure that you keep as much of your money working for you as possible.

What Makes ARQ Different from Other Financial Advisors in Scottsdale, AZ

Team-Based Approach

Instead of one single advisor handling your financial and retirement planning, we provide a whole team of experts to help with your unique financial situation. As a fee only financial advisory firm, we are in this together and our main focus is analyzing your unique financial situation and working on a long-term plan to meet your financial goals.

Asking the Right Questions

This is not a one-size-fits-all approach, we tailor your specific financial and retirement plans to fit your unique goals and situation. We start this process with our free consultation to learn more about your financial goals and then understand a comprehensive picture using our Q Form™ Assessment to determine a score for the strength of your financial plan. 

Low Client/Advisor Ratios

We currently maintain an average of 50:1 client to advisor ratio at ARQ Wealth. True, it’s a more expensive way to do business, but we created the firm to maximize your success, not corporate margins. Unlike the larger competitors, we can give all of our clients the time they deserve for their financial planning and investment management. 

What Motivates Us

Each of us left large institutions because we wanted to focus on delivering exceptional experiences for our clients, unencumbered by corporate conflicts. Helping our clients achieve their financial goals is incredibly gratifying for us. Simply put, that is our motivation.

Experienced Professionals

At ARQ, you don’t get a single advisor, you get a team dedicated to your success. With multiple credentials, our team possesses the important credentials: (four CFPs®, one RICP®, and three AIFs®) and more than 15+ years average advisor experience. We’ve got the experience you need: we have implemented more than 3,000 financial plans.

Grading Your Financial Plan

When is the last time that you and your family did a complete review of your investment management and financial planning strategy? At ARQ Wealth, we understand the importance of identifying what financial topics are important to you and how to establish a plan for each respective area.
