Waddell & Reed, Inc. - Linda Polwrek, CFP®

Many people, especially women, believe that their financial well-being is linked solely to their ability to earn a high income. True financial independence, however, has much more to do with understanding and taking advantage of the finances you have: setting financial goals and learning to use financial strategies that will help you pursue your objectives.

My goal as a financial professional is to help you plan for your financial goals. Whether this involves building wealth through investing, funding a child's college education, planning for a comfortable retirement, or managing your estate, I can help you develop a roadmap to pursue your goals and make informed decisions in an effort to improve your financial situation.

The process I follow in completing a total financial strategy consists of:

  1. Gathering and analyzing your financial situation to develop a clear picture of your specific needs, assets, liabilities, and risk tolerance;
  2. Designing a financial strategy that takes into account the full range of needs you have now, and those needs you may have in the future; and
  3. Periodically reviewing your strategy, consulting with you to determine whether we need to make adjustments, and assisting you in keeping your plan on track.
