Eric A. Peters, CLU®, ChFC®, AIF®
More than a decade of industry experience made Eric realize that the needs of individual clients weren't always best served by the typical "Wall Street" business model where a firm sells its products to meet its sales goals. In 2008, Eric and his son, Kevin, founded Peters Financial Group to ensure that the individual needs of each client would be the primary focus.
Today, Peters Financial Group has merged with Stonebridge Financial Group to build economy of scale and additional synergy with a group of advisors who have the same dedication of serving the clients' best interests above all else.
During his 18 years in the financial services industry, Eric has drawn on his background as a third-generation auto dealer to help family-owned businesses develop and manage a comprehensive plan coordinating estate, retirement, business succession, and risk management in order to help ensure for:
Creation of a master plan for managing property during life and distribution of that property at death
Providing you with a comfortable lifestyle
A smooth transition of the business between generations or if no children are taking over the business, positioning the business for a sale to a third party
Minimizing taxation on the transfer
Fairness between children who are active and those who are inactive in the operation of the business
Managing risks during the plan process
Retaining key employees before, during, and after the transition
Helping employees prepare for their own retirement
