What’s the expiry date on your parent’s financial plan? I have a moral obligation and fiduciary responsibility to look after FAMILIES not just FUNDS in my work. Would you be willing to put us together for 30 minutes to pressure test the advice they’ve received – so that you never end up inheriting them financially?
Parent Meeting Release Letter To Whom It May Concern I have today been offered a complimentary consultation for/with my living parents by my financial advisor ( insert name ). I understand that the purpose of such a meeting is: 1. To “pressure test” the financial advice they have been receiving for longevity risk in their documented financial plan.
2. To establish whether there are any existing long term care/caregiving risks in their planning which may negatively impact my own retirement funding. 3. To provide them with scientific and mathematical realities influencing future healthcare delivery in our country that may present financial risks in their future. 4. To evaluate their estate planning needs to ensure that their wealth and assets are transitioned with maximum preservation from tax and other final expenses.
This advisor has informed me that this meeting is in my own best interests and conducted in order to keep them in compliance with standard protocols of licensed financial advisors. Having duly considered the above issues, I have respectfully declined to provide the necessary introduction of my parent/s to (insert advisor name). I release them of any future liability within my own financial planning arising from this decision. Sincerely, (Name of client)

Family Member Email George, there's something I've been wanting to run by you for quite some time, but was reluctant to make you feel uncomfortable in any way. (This will arouse some curiosity.) As you might already realize, I do some pretty important work for my clients. I help them gain a high level of confidence, clarity, and control over their personal finances. Obviously, this type of work is very personal and confidential. I just want to make sure that whatever advice you are currently getting is as complete and of the highest caliber possible. Would you be open to sitting down with me at some point to for a complimentary assessment of your situation? I promise that no other members of our family will become privy to our conversation.
