In this episode…

Mediation is often used for financially complex divorces and other types of settlements, with a neutral third party facilitating the negotiations. Likewise, financial advisors play a crucial role in helping to identify the parties’ goals and designing a path to achieve them, helping to reach a settlement that satisfies all parties involved. So, what role do financial advisors play in helping to resolve disputes?

According to Gregg Keele and Nate Hacker, certified financial advisors and mediators, bringing your financial expert to mediation increases the probability of the attorneys and parties having a clear understanding of your finances. In addition to tracing assets and analyzing cash flow, financial analysts can simplify complex tax issues and establish a framework to divide assets. Moreover, a victim who has suffered an injury or the loss of a loved one may need help understanding the financial implications or replacement of lost income. Financial advisors and mediators like Gregg and Nate advise individuals and corporations, helping them meet their long-term financial objectives. They highlight the importance of aligning resources with one’s goals, being proactive about tax implications, and making informed choices in a settlement.
