Making Money Make Sense

Isn’t it time your money made sense? We think so.

Money can be complicated, but we believe it should lead to more freedom and confidence.

Since 1998 Family Investment Center has been providing high quality and fee-only planning services. Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, we’ve expanded these services under the leadership of Richard C. Salmen, CFP®, CFA®, EA. Richard provides professional financial planning services with a team at a Family Investment Center office in Lenexa, Kan. (Two locations, one mission: You and your goals).

Why? Because we’ve always provided what we call situational financial planning. This means our clients come in with a particular circumstance or situation that requires a little review and some help. In the past, we’ve  put the information together to help them do that.

Today, our expanded financial planning services means a more systematic approach. It involves insurance, estate planning, investment management, investment planning and taxes. It’s a more comprehensive and robust package than what we’ve had in the past. We believe this is something that adds genuine value to our existing clients.  We can now provide more comprehensive investment management, business planning, insurance planning, risk management, cash flow management and goal setting services. And it’s all based on you, not driven by sales or commissions.
