Guest: Mackey McNeill, CPA/PFS

Mackey McNeill, CPA/PFS, shares when and how she talks about investments with her clients in this episode of the PFP Section podcast. She walks you through her approach to her key ideas including:

  • If your clients loved investments, they wouldn’t use your services.
  • At the end of the planning process, refine the plan by developing the investment policy statement while the client is with you.
  • Talk in plain English and repeatedly ask if anyone has questions while also keeping the conversation focused on the client.
  • How her process takes more time and investment up front though saves time in the long run and creates lasting clients who refer.
