Mishawaka, IN Focus Areas:

A financial advisor is someone who builds a plan for using your wealth to meet your specific needs and goals for today and the future.

Financial advisors help guide decision-making with the primary aim of applying your finances and assets in effective ways. If you are seeking someone with experience to guide financial decisions that align with your life priorities, a financial advisor is a key professional to have working for you.

Working with a financial advisor will help you to identify the appropriate strategies and financial disciplines to implement for your needs. A financial advisor will use a well-established and proven process to build a financial plan that provides a roadmap to reaching your defined goals.

The SYM advisory team in Mishawaka takes a high-touch approach, striving to provide best-in-class service and thorough financial planning.

Do You Really Need A Financial Advisor?

Planning for your future and handling your finances should not be so burdensome that it takes time away from what is important to you.

The prefix “SYM” means together. We at SYM Financial synchronize the various parts of your financial equation in an effort to bring together – and keep together – what is most important to you.

Wealth Planning

Each person’s financial picture is unique. So, we make sure to produce personalized financial plans and strategies for our clients.

Portfolio Management for You

SYM Financial is an independent firm not associated with any parent company. We act independently in our investment selection and are driven by what is in your best-interest (not outside custodial influences). Portfolio decisions are made at SYM on a measured, strategic basis by our Investment Committee using fundamental economic and financial market data, not emotions.

Client portfolios are consistently monitored to keep asset allocation on course, manage behavior gaps in returns, and rebalance to adhere to objectives. Whenever possible, SYM recommends investments which may be unavailable to retail investors or may be more expensive in retail channels. High investment expenses can erode investment returns. SYM’s goal is to identify low investment fees and we work to maximize net-after-tax investment returns within a client’s risk parameters.

Service – Not Sales

SYM is a commission-free, independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). Unlike brokers or banks who are compensated by the sale of investment products, we prioritize high-quality, personalized service from our financial advisors. Our only motivation is to do and offer what’s best for your financial plan.

What are Registered Investment Advisors?

Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) have clear fee structures. SYM charges fees on a percentage of assets or a flat fee.

RIAs commit to a fiduciary standard that requires them to act in the client’s best interest. They must disclose to you if they take take commissions as it can conflict with that fiduciary oath. SYM does not take commissions.

What if things change?

The investment market can be unpredictable. SYM Financial acknowledges that when it comes to investments and wealth management, even the most well-laid plan may need adjustments over time.

We work to protect your finances and investments by striving to anticipate unplanned market events and developments. Financial advisors are responsible for ongoing and regular analysis of your financial plan to ensure that directives stay on track.
