Welcome to Wise Stewardship
Grief is hard. Sometimes determining what’s next is even harder.
I know because I’ve walked that road before.
Wise Stewardship Financial Planning is here to help widows and widowers across the U.S. with financial planning and advice.
Why Wise Stewardship?
We are uniquely positioned to help widows and widowers figure out what’s next.
That’s just a big fancy word meaning that we only work in your best interest 100% of the time and are personally liable if we give bad advice. We put it in writing by signing a fiduciary oath to prove it.
The only way we are compensated is by you, our client. We believe in clear, transparent pricing, and we never take any commissions or have any hidden fees. We only work for you. Period.
Like you, we know what loss is like and how it affects your financial life. We compassionately guide our clients with financial planning and advice as a trusted companion in your ongoing grief journey.
About Daniel Kopp
Hello, I’m Daniel – husband to Anna, widower to Sarah, Air Force veteran, business owner, writer, speaker, CFP® Professional, financial planner, and Christ-follower. I’m the founder of Wise Stewardship Financial Planning where we offer fee-only, fiduciary financial planning and investment advice with a special focus on young widows and widowers as well as servicemembers and their families.
Grief changes everything. I know that all too well from personal experience as I became a widower at 31 and before that, father to 3 children in heaven. My passion and purpose now is to take what I’ve learned from those experiences combined with financial planning and advice to be a help to you in your own unique grief journey. Wise Stewardship works together with you to help gain stability in your current financial situation, prioritize next steps, and walk with you into a new and different future.
How Can We Help You?
Comprehensive Financial Planning
Our comprehensive plan provides a complete overview of your entire financial life, helps you determine what action steps to take to meet your goals and needs, and then provides ongoing support and advice to implement each part of your financial plan. It gives you complete, ongoing access to WSFP regarding your financial life for all the questions and changes that life may bring. Investment management is available as an additional service to our comprehensive financial planning clients.
Hourly or Foundation Plans Financial Planning
WSFP offers these options for clients that would prefer creating a comprehensive plan and then implementing it on their own. We work together for several meetings providing a complete overview of your financial life, crafting goals and action steps before you then work on your own to implement the financial plan. Hourly planning offers an additional option fully customizable to your unique situation, needs, and questions on a narrower scope than a comprehensive plan.
Quick Start Plans
Have a specific question related to just one or two common issues? WSFP offers Quick Start Plans coverings some frequently asked questions by our clients.
