Who We Are
Our mission is to help our clients make smart decisions with their money, achieve financial success and accomplish what they value most in life. Our desire is to provide individuals with the absolute best advice and service available in the financial industry, and do it with the highest level of competence and integrity.
Solis Wealth Management is an independent financial firm established to put our clients’ best interest first by strictly adhering to our mission statement, vision statement and commitment creed—governing values that drive our daily life. Everything we do at Solis Wealth Management must be compatible with them. We are keenly aware that the guidance we are able to provide every day is a blessing and a privilege, and we want to steward it to the best of our ability.
To accomplish this, we believe that we cannot be solely focused on ourselves, but must also be an “other-centric” organization that is driven to make a difference in people’s lives. We understand that money is a tool to help you confidently pursue what you value most, and we are passionate about helping you transition from financial independence to personal significance.
“We approach everyday with an attitude of gratitude for our clients’ ongoing trust and confidence”
What We Offer
“We approach everyday with an attitude of gratitude for our clients’ ongoing trust and confidence”
As our mission statement clearly states, our goal is to help you make smart decisions with your money and accomplish the things you value most in life. Therefore, we create and maintain a comprehensive financial plan that addresses the following:
Although we are not able to give tax advice, we will work closely with your CPA or tax advisor to help manage your tax liability.
Whether you are already retired or working toward retirement, we analyze your situation and provide strategies that seek to help you build long-term sustainability.
By working directly with your estate planning attorney, or referring you to one of our outside strategic legal resources* we will establish a plan that may help you bypass probate, manage taxes and assist with transferring wealth to your loved ones or meaningful charities.
Through The Private Trust Company, N.A., an affiliate of LPL Financial, we can provide you with access to comprehensive trust services customized for your needs. These services include revocable trusts, charitable remainder trusts and irrevocable life insurance trusts.
We will review your life, long-term care and disability insurance to determine if you have adequate coverage. Plus, through our outside strategic insurance resources, we can also offer access to strategies for medical insurance, property and casualty insurance, and supplemental Medicare insurance.
Through our access to a robust research department and thousands of different investment vehicles (including but not limited to stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, annuities and alternative investments), we will develop a customized asset allocation portfolio specifically designed to address your needs and goals, while staying within your risk tolerance. We believe that being disciplined in our approach toward strategic and tactical asset management will help give you a good probability of managing risk and capturing a reasonable rate of return.

What To Expect
First Step: Introductory Meeting
This initial meeting, which may be in person or over the phone, is designed to address any questions or concerns you may have in regard to the services we provide, how we deliver our services, our core values, compensation, etc. Typically, this meeting is with the lead advisor. During this meeting we want to determine three things:
1. Can we truly help and add value to your situation?
If we are unable to help you or add value to your situation, we do not want the business. News travels fast if we are earning a commission or fee and not adding value.
2. Can we establish a mutually beneficial relationship?
In other words, if we are able to add value, are we able to be fairly compensated for our services? To not be fairly compensated would create a win/lose relationship. The new client wins, but our existing clients, staff and families lose. We have learned that a win/win situation is the healthiest and most gratifying relationship that will stand the test of tumultuous markets and time.
3. Can we work with you?
We are interested in building good, solid partnerships that are based upon honesty, integrity and respect. There will be no fee charged for this initial consultation and, outside of general observations, no specific recommendations will be made at this time. If we both determine that we may be able to establish a mutually beneficial relationship, a second appointment will be set.
Second Step: Data Gathering
During this meeting, our primary goal is to simply gather information on your specific situation. Our Director of Financial Planning will be in contact with you to schedule this appointment and will send to you a summary of the items that are helpful to have available such as bank statements, brokerage statements, 401(k)/retirement statements, tax returns, and any other important financial information. The more information that you provide, the more accurate we can make your proposal. It is also very important to clarify your dreams and goals. We make it our priority to understand what is important to you so that we can help you work towards accomplishing what you value most in life.
Third Step: Organize and Formalize
Behind the scenes, a lot goes on to organize and formalize a comprehensive financial plan that could help you work towards meeting your needs, goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. We compile the information that you have provided to us and construct a financial road map that will hopefully help you work towards accomplishing what you value most in life. In the initial plan, we will address your current assets and recommend an asset allocation strategy that addresses your goals and risk tolerance. We will also review your estate planning, tax strategizing, retirement planning, insurance, college funding, debt financing and cash flow analysis needs.
Fourth Step: Questions and/or Document Signing
Once we have made the decision to work together, we will contact you to complete any new account and transfer documents either in person or via electronic signature. All accounts will be opened as you currently have them at your bank and/or brokerage firm. For the most part, all publicly traded securities (outside of proprietary investments and annuities) are easily transferable from one firm to another. We will handle the entire transfer and try to make it as seamless as possible for you. The process typically takes about 10 business days.
LPL Financial does not charge any fees to transfer your accounts, however, your existing firm may charge an account closing fee, typically between $50 to $150 per account.
Step Five: Implementation Plan
After your account transfers are complete, we will research each investment that you currently own and formulate an implementation plan. We analyze available research through LPL Financial’s independent research department as well as Fi360, Morningstar, and Moody’s to assist us with determining which investment still makes sense for you to own. We take into consideration any capital gains and losses as well as any costs to liquidate the holdings. Then, we sort each investment into the appropriate asset class—holding what we believe are sound investments and selling what we believe are no longer appropriate. Our goal is to create an asset allocation strategy and a comprehensive financial plan that is specifically designed for your needs, goals, and risk tolerances.
During the implementation planning meeting, we also address and discuss any other needs you may have such as estate planning, tax strategizing, retirement planning, insurance, college funding, debt financing and cash flow analysis. Although we are not attorneys or CPAs, we will work closely with your other advisors to make sure all of your needs are met. If you do not have an established relationship, we can help you find one that meets your needs in our outside network of professionals.
Sixth Step: Confirmations and Statements
After all the trades have been placed, we will reach out to make sure you received your trade confirmations and review where we are in the process. We will also reach out to review your first statement and online account view with us, either via phone or in our office, to make sure you clearly understand everything.
Seventh Step: Ongoing Monitoring and Periodic Review
It is important for you to understand that we will continue to monitor the economy, markets, investment climate and your portfolio on an ongoing basis. You are not alone. Our goal is to proactively anticipate your needs before you even know you have one. Although not mandatory, we encourage a quarterly check-up of your portfolio and financial condition. This is a good opportunity for us to discuss the current economic and market environment and how they may be affecting your portfolio. We also recommend periodic comprehensive reviews of your total wealth situation at least annually. At this time, we will discuss your objectives and accounts in detail. The goal of the reviews is to accomplish four things:
1.Examine the progress of your overall plan.
2.Ensure that the services we provide not only meet your expectations, but also exceed them.
3.Obtain any updated personal and/or financial information from you.
4.Determine if your goals, objectives, and risk tolerances have changed.
It is important for you to let us know if your situation has changed so that we may make any changes, if necessary. During these meetings, we will also use our internal performance reporting software to provide you with detailed performance information. These reports are also readily available to you at any time upon request.
Our compensation is typically paid through advisory accounts and is calculated based on assets under management. These fees are calculated annually and charged quarterly.
