Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Lamb Financial Planning, a financial planning firm based in Encino, Calif., has merged with Abacus Wealth Partners. Abacus is a leading provider of comprehensive financial planning, investment management and wealth management services in California and across the U.S.
“This merger will allow Lamb Financial to bring our hourly-based and flat-fee financial planning to a wider range of clients, while also expanding our available services to our existing clients. It was important to me that our firms have the same vision and philosophy to offer financial planning to clients at every level and I am thrilled to say it is our common goal and my driving passion to bring these services to more individuals,” said Lara Lamb, founder of Lamb Financial Planning.
“Abacus Wealth Partners and Lamb Financial Planning share the same commitment to helping people achieve the things that matter most to them,” said J.D. Bruce, President of Abacus Wealth Partners. “By working together, we can provide financial planning services to a greater variety of people, including those who may have been unable to access the services at Abacus. Previously we had a minimum investment size of $50,000, which was as low as we could make it. I’m excited to be able to tell the world that, as a result of this merger, we’ve finally been able to lower our minimum to zero.”
Partnering with Abacus Wealth Partners will allow Lamb Financial to continue to provide affordable financial planning, while also making comprehensive ongoing investment management and wealth management services available to clients. Current and future Abacus clients will also enjoy greater access to affordable financial planning services.
