SAN DIEGO - Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ - Pacific Divorce Management, a national leader in financial planning and analysis for divorce, has announced the launch of a turnkey franchise system that should appeal to growth-minded financial advisors. The company began sharing details of the nationwide franchise opportunity with financial planners attending the Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA) 20th Anniversary Conference last week in Las Vegas.
Pacific Divorce Management will over the coming months be unveiling the first-ever turnkey business solution that serves the divorce niche and the individuals transitioning into what is often a new financial reality. The company's decision to launch this new franchise solution is the result of significant growth in the Divorce Financial Planning industry. Company founders who attended the IDFA conference shared during a panel presentation how they have created a successful fee-based financial advisory firm using Divorce Financial Planning not just as a lead generating activity but also as a revenue producing staple.
"We're looking for advisors who are hungry for new business. The ideal franchise candidate is actively seeking a new way to differentiate themselves within the growing independent advisor market," said Justin Reckers, CFP®, CDFA™, Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Divorce Management and an IDFA board member.
In addition to talking about the Pacific Divorce franchise opportunity, Reckers and his business partner Mark C. Hill also participated on the Leading Practitioners Panel at last week's IDFA conference.
Pacific Divorce Management has developed a turnkey business model to help advisors:
According to its website, Pacific Divorce Management's mission is to provide divorce financial planning services that focus on long-term well-being; the focus is to mitigate the devastating financial effects that are often the result of divorce. Pacific Divorce Management's Managing Director, Mark C. Hill believes that the financial decisions made during a divorce will very likely be the biggest and most difficult decisions the parties will ever make.
"Divorce is typically the largest financial transaction of most people's lives," said Hill, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA™). "With two million people getting divorced in the U.S. every year, there is both a social need and a business opportunity for a large scale force to help guide these individuals through the financial decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives."
The team at Pacific Divorce Management sees divorce not as a battle to be fought but as a problem to be solved through teamwork of the parties, along with the guidance of their attorneys, divorce financial planning experts, and counseling professionals. Divorce Financial Planning is the intersection of expert financial analysis, financial planning and decision coaching, keeping the unique and complicated financial intricacies of divorce in mind. In Divorce Financial Planning, legal advisers offer the structure and guidance necessary to fashion agreements, while Pacific Divorce Management offers the creative options, financial analysis and strategies necessary to ensure their clients obtain the most financially advantageous settlement possible.
Pacific Divorce Management representatives will be available to share more information with financial planning practitioners attending FPA Experience 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, October 19-21, 2013. Financial Planning Association members and interested others are invited to stop by booth #827 to learn more.
Based in San Diego, CA, Pacific Divorce Management helps individuals and couples address the financial aspects of divorce in a civilized, equitable, and efficient manner by providing expert divorce financial planning and advice. The firm was established by several successful Certified Divorce Financial Analysts who have tested the franchise formula "in the trenches" for many years. The new turnkey franchise offering will be available to financial planning professionals and IDFA members as of November 1, 2013. For more information please visit www.PacDivorce.com.
IDFA trains certified divorce financial analysts (CDFA™). These specially trained professionals help support individuals throughout the divorce process. CDFA™ professionals tend to be financial planners, accountants, and lawyers; they help determine the financial needs and outcomes for couples after divorce. Founded in 1993, the IDFA currently has more than 2,000 CDFAs across the United States and Canada. The number of professionals receiving the CDFA designation continues to grow at nearly 15% each year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as more people across the country search for alternative divorce processes – from collaborative law to mediation – rather than litigating their case using lawyers as their only line of defense.
