Our Financial Planning Services

Financial Planning as an Hourly Service

Clients of Cannon Wealth Management, LLC with assets under care exceeding $250,000, not only receive investment management services, but also financial planning at no additional charge. Occasionally, individuals, families and business professionals find that our investment management services are either not necessary or are only needed on a minimal level. However, they still may wish to engage our firm for financial planning and professional consultative advice pertaining to a number of areas of interest, including but not limited to: retirement readiness analysis, asset diversification, social security planning, risk avoidance/ reduction, business succession/liquidation, education funding, wealth accumulation and/or estate transfer.
