First County Advisors is proud to offer Fee-Based Financial Planning to the communities we serve. Our Certified Financial Planners® and Trust Officers collaborate with individuals and families to create tailored solutions.
We are now able to offer our financial planning services to a wider variety of clients, as this planning is offered separate from investment management, trust administration or estate settlement.

- Budgeting & Cash Flow
- Portfolio Allocation
- Insurance Analysis
- Tax Analysis
- Retirement Planning
- Estate Planning
- Education Funding & Planning
Our team works with clients and their other trusted advisors, such as attorneys and accountants, together creating financial independence.
The Financial Planning Process
First, we work with clients to identify their goals and gather all relevant quantitative and qualitative data. After detailed analysis is performed, we present and carefully explain our recommendations. Next, we assist in implementing these recommendations either directly or in concert with clients and other professionals.
Why work with Certified Financial Planners®?
Most people think all financial planners are “certified”, but this isn’t true. Anyone can use the title “financial planner” but, only those who have fulfilled the certification and renewal requirements of the CFP Board can display the CFP® certification trademarks – which represent a high level of competency, ethics and professionalism. Certified Financial Planners® are held to a fiduciary standard of care when providing planning services, and are required to act in your best interest. Contact First County Advisors and work with our team of CFP® professionals. To learn more about Certified Financial Planners® please visit letsmakeaplan.org.
