How could you benefit from the services of a qualified financial advisor?

Who is Good Life?
Good Life Companies is a comprehensive provider of world-class service, in depth risk management and forward thinking solutions for independent advisors. Built to support the distinct needs of advisors, Good Life provides the oversight and services needed to be compliant in a heavily regulated industry. Good Life formed in 2012 by current financial advisors, Conor Delaney and Courtnie Nein. From the beginning, Conor and Courtnie saw the need for greater support for independent advisors. Recognizing that compliance can be a true burden, they sought to assist financial advisors with outsourcing services so they could focus on their businesses. The group quickly gained momentum as well as a reputation for being a resource to advisors. Soon after the formation of the group, Good Life began attracting other successful advisors who aimed to outsource functions that did not add value to their practices, such as compliance, supervision, and operational responsibilities regarding office space and technology.
How are advisors compensated?
Our objective is for you to succeed in your investment plan. Most of our compensation is tied to the assets we manage or oversee on your behalf. We offer two basic formats depending on your situation:
Fee Based: We are compensated through fees for consultation, plan development, or investment management. These fees are typically based on a percentage of assets under management. Some services are provided on a fixed-fee basis.
Commission Based: We are compensated on the purchase or sale of securities or insurance products selected to meet your financial objectives.
Under either compensation format, we monitor your investments regularly, and our presentations of investment results are shown net of fees.
How do we proceed?
The first step is to meet and discuss your objectives, concerns and goals. This is a no obligation, no cost consultation. From there we can mutually decide on appropriate next steps. To get started either complete the form on our contact page or simply give us a call at (980) 859-3160.
