Triplett-Westendorf Financial Group Is Compensated
Triplett Wealth Management*
Folks seeking financial planning and investment advice from a fee-based client-first fiduciary advisor may choose to engage with Triplett Wealth Management*, a division of the Triplett-Westendorf Financial Group. These folks would pay an annual fee deducted quarterly from their accounts, and in return receive conflict-free investment advice about their securities investments like equities (stocks for example), and fixed income (bonds for example), and any other securities-related investments.
Folks who are a good fit for this engagement are those who might feel good knowing that their advisor receives no commission or financial incentive to recommend one investment over another and that our firm does well financially when they do well.
Folks seeking this type of relationship pay a fee based on the assets managed within their plan. The fee covers the fiduciary management of market-based investments within their portfolio, as well as the ongoing maintenance of their personalized PT5 Written Retirement Income Plan designed to guide them to and through their very own vision of a successful retirement.

Triplett-Westendorf Insurance Services
We believe every financial product is a tool. Each tool was designed to perform a specific job. Some tools are better quality or perform their intended job better than others. Freedom to choose the appropriate tool based on quality and effectiveness at getting the job done is important to our team. Sometimes insurance products like life insurance, fixed annuities, or long-term care insurance may be the right tool for the job. However, they are not all created equal, and specific manufacturers of these contracts are better at certain things than others.
When we have determined that it is in our clients’ interest to use an insurance contract issued by an insurance company to transfer specific risks away from them and their family, to an insurance company specifically specializing in handling such risk, those companies who we do business with pay our representatives a commission. Our insurance licensed representatives are completely independent, and therefore capable of representing a broad spectrum of companies. That means that they are free to choose the tool that they believe will provide the most economic value to our clients, from a quality manufacture, based on a specific job that needs to be accomplished.
