Understanding Personal Risk

Personal risk entails the potential for events that could adversely affect your financial health. It's vital to acknowledge a broad array of threats in crafting a risk management strategy. Essential risk categories include:

  • Property and Casualty: These involve losses to your assets from fires, thefts, natural calamities, or mishaps, such as hurricane damage, vehicle theft, or residential fires.

  • Liability: This occurs when you're accountable for damage or injury to others, like accidents on your premises or harm caused by your pet.

  • Income: Risks related to job loss, illness, disability, or necessity for long-term care that could reduce your financial inflow.

  • Life: The financial ramifications from the demise of a chief income provider, with life insurance serving as a mitigation method.

  • Cybersecurity: The financial turmoil from data breaches or online fraud, highlighting the need for robust online security measures.

  • Business: Owning a business entails operational, market, and legal risks.

  • Long-Term Care: The escalating costs of prolonged medical care necessitate advance financial planning.

  • Inflation: The gradual decrease in money's value, necessitating investments that can outpace inflation.

  • Credit: The risks from unexpected debt or fluctuating interest rates, stressing the importance of prudent credit use and debt management.

The Potential Benefits of Proactive Risk Management:

Proactive risk management is akin to constructing a durable home prior to storm onset, unlike reactive strategies that are comparable to frantic construction amid a hurricane. At Landsberg Bennett Private Wealth Management, we advocate for a proactive stance, enabling clients to harness various benefits:

  • Financial Resilience: This approach extends beyond asset protection; it's about lessening financial impacts from potential adversities. Consider the benefits of an emergency fund for sudden medical costs, income protection through disability insurance, or a diversified portfolio to manage market shifts. Proactively managing risks fortifies your financial future, helping to ensure resources to sustain your lifestyle, even amid unforeseen challenges.

  • Legacy Preservation: Effective risk management ensures your ability to support your family and achieve philanthropic aims, protecting both your financial stability and legacy. Whether it’s funding education, caring for a family member, or contributing to favored charities, proactive risk management paves the way for a significant and enduring familial and societal impact.

  • Enhanced Decision-Making: Engaging in risk management promotes a comprehensive view of your finances and aspirations, aiding in strategic investment, insurance, and financial planning. This foresight leads to informed and aligned decision-making with your financial goals.

  • Family Protection: One of the critical advantages of proactive risk management is the security it offers your dependents. Planning ahead for possible income loss or unexpected health costs ensures your family avoids the financial strain of sudden events, allowing them to focus on recovery or daily life without fiscal worries.

*Barron’s annual rankings are based on assets under management, revenue generated by advisors for their firms, and the quality of their practices. Investment performance isn’t an explicit criterion, because it is often a function of each client’s appetite for risk. In our evaluations, we examine regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus data points provided by the advisors themselves.

The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
