Independent Advisors Are Crafting the Future of Retirement Planning Industry

While the SEC continues to debate the issues of duty and integrity, some of the nation’s most experienced financial advisors are setting tomorrow’s standards for unbiased retirement planning services. Among them is an elite cadre of about 70 independent advisors who participate in an ongoing exchange – a virtual think tank. The advisors, who are affiliated with Legacy Investment Services, Inc., are evaluating and refining processes, rigorously testing emerging technologies and promoting practices that give investors unlimited access to quality investment products.

The brainchild of founder Marc G. Minor, RFC, Legacy Investment Services was established in the early 1990s. The processes he developed broke the traditional business models. He reasoned that sophisticated technology used in mega-firms to conduct independent research and stress-test portfolios was available to smaller firms as well. And, once he cohesively aligned with an independent broker-dealer, he would no longer be captive to the broker’s limited options nor would he be accountable to sales quotas. His “out-of-the-box” approach would give each client access to the entire universe of investment options. …Read More

Nurturing The Spirit of Entrepreneurship

Only 14 cities in the United States have created more jobs than were lost in the recession. Six of those cities are found in Texas, and Houston is leading the charge, not only because of its strength in the energy industry but also due to the entrepreneurial spirit innate to the city.

What better place to foster this spirit of entrepreneurship than in the city’s leading business school, the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston?

Consultants Delve Deep to Resolve
Critical Challenges

SWBC – Ad Valorem Tax Advisors

 

Property Tax Experts Help Businesses
Protect Their Revenue, SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors

Paying one’s fair share of property taxes is the responsibility of every Texas business owner. But are those taxes being fairly assessed? More to the point: Has the property in question been correctly appraised?

Many business people assume the answer is yes.
“Think again,” says Jesse R. Adams, CEO of SWBC’s Ad Valorem Tax Advisors and a licensed Senior Property Tax Consultant. Adams understands all too well the value—indeed, the necessity—of scrutinizing property tax valuations. He and his team of experts have helped thousands of Texas businesses realize substantial savings.

“Property taxes are the most expensive operating component of a business’ bottom line,” Adams says. “As the demand for their tax dollars grows, business owners need an aggressive advocate in their corner to make sure they’re not paying more than they owe.”

Unrelenting Focus on Property Tax Complexities
Texas’ property tax system, according to Adams, is among the best in the nation. But it’s also one of the most stringent—a densely regulated, deadline-riddled system that is unforgiving and unnecessarily costly for business owners who get lost in the shuffle.
“This business isn’t simply about identifying a property’s true value,” Adams explains. “It demands in-depth knowledge of property tax law, the assessment process, and the appeals process. It also requires diligence—keeping clients abreast of year-round deadlines and regulatory change. Our desire—our steadfast commitment—is to ensure every taxpayer is treated fairly.”

Team’s Record of Results Unrivaled in Texas
In terms of the savings it has achieved for medical facilities, industrial complexes, retail centers, multifamily developments, car dealerships, hotels and resorts, agricultural properties, and other business holdings across Texas, SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors sets the industry standard. Its record owes to a number of crucial distinctions:
Diverse employee specialties such as property valuation, real estate development, and tax consulting.

Meticulous research including extensive on-site visits, which allow the team to carefully ascertain each property’s unique characteristics and worth.

Unique market insight into what makes properties work and the variables that determine their value.

Cutting-edge account management system for advanced income analysis, timely filing of taxes and appeals, and client communication.

Aggressive representation to protect clients’ assets and argue for tax fairness.
Adams is adamant: Hiring a property tax professional—not just any professional, but the best in the business—is critical to minimizing tax liability. “We’ve spent the past 25 years building an industry-leading enterprise, with a blend of experience, resources, and proven results that no one else can match.”
