Finally … it’s right here!

Link: http://www.medicalbusinessadvisors.com/forum-discussion.asp

Telephonic or electronic advice for medical professionals that is:

  • Objective, affordable, medically focused and personalized
  • Rendered by a prescreened financial consultant or medical management advisor
  • Offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, by phone or secure e-mail transmission

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ is a physician-to-advisor telephone or e-mail portal that connects independent financial professionals and medical management consultants, with doctors or healthcare executives desiring affordable and unbiased financial or business advice on an as-needed, pay-per-use basis.

Medical professionals and healthcare executives can now receive direct access to prescreened iMBA professionals in the areas of Practice Enhancement, Investing, Financial Planning, Asset Allocation, Portfolio Management Taxes, Insurance, Mortgage and Lending, Practice Management, Information Technology, Human Resources and Employee Benefits. To assist our doctor / healthcare executive members, we can be contracted with per-minute or per-project fees, and contacted by client phone, email or secure instant messaging.

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ is designed to fill a growing need for medically focused financial or managerial advice that traditional consultants have not been able to serve. Most financial “consultants” either charge high sales commissions, or levy a percentage of fees for managing client assets. And, management consultants tend to extend their scope of engagement to tangential areas not originally needed, or wanted.

Typically, financial advisors also require clients to meet minimum asset level thresholds ($100,000 to $250,000, or more), or pay thousands of dollars in consulting fees to receive their services. These fee structures have created inherent conflicts of interest and significant barriers for an increasing number of time-compressed and economically constrained physicians or healthcare executives.

Now, with the iMBA Discussion Forum™, all physicians and executive clients can receive unbiased financial advice, and objective business opinions, on their own terms, anytime-anywhere.

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ eliminates conflicts of interest by providing advice on a per-use basis, so you pay only for what you want and need. iMBA does not sell financial or business products. The result is a unique “no pressure”, and “no conflicts-of-interest experience.”

Get started with your consultation, now! Receive only the advice you need and pay for, from a medically focused and qualified doctor-advisor looking after your best interests.

  4. Medical Colleagues

    Work with us virtually. Many practitioners want to work with us, but just can’t travel to meet us. Depending upon the circumstances, we may recommend our virtual consulting service.

    On the other hand, some medical practices and healthcare organizations are so unique, or so large, that they have to be seen to be understood. If that sounds like you, we can work with you personally, in your office.

    Our on-site program includes preparatory phone consultations, private visit [2-3 days], consultant’s travel, business analysis, strategic planning, recommendations, staff training (if appropriate), and related special needs. And, we will accommodate special requests, like valuations and appraisals, too.

    If not, we’ll try and point you in the right direction.
    Either way, we’ll leave you better off than before.

  6. Dr. Marcinko

    Tell your readers to ask the advisor for an estimate of total annual costs as a percentage of the portfolio.

    This should include a breakdown of both visible costs (commissions and advisor fees) and less visible costs (expense ratios and mutual funds, transaction fees and referral incentive perks, such as vacation trips).

  9. Small Consulting Projects – No Problem

    For small miscellaneous practice management, or personal financial advisorsy projects, and/or for doctor and clients who do not meet investment minimums, we may work on an hourly basis.

    The hourly fee is $250/hour. For example, evaluating the investment options in a 403-b and helping a new doctor decide how to invest may only take an hour and cost $250. A more involved retirement analysis and projection may take a couple hours and run $500. Most simple and single projects run between $250 and $750.

  10. Don’t Be A ‘Long-Term Bear’

    My advice for investors is to stay the course. No one has become rich by being a long-term bear . . . This is still the most flexible and innovative economy in the world. Indeed, it is times like this when investors should consider rebalancing their portfolios. If increases in bond prices and declines in equities have produced an asset allocation that is heavier in fixed income than is appropriate, given your time horizon and tolerance for risk, then sell some bonds and buy stocks. Years from now, you will be glad you did.

  14. Second Financial Opinions

    An unprecedented economic earthquake has left many investors unsure about their financial future.

    Many medical professionals are wondering what to do next. Stay the course and keep all investments where they are? Move everything now while things are calmer? Explore new options with fresh eyes or even a new career?

    For anyone seeking to evaluate their current financial health and make some sense of what to do next (if anything) – start by getting a second opinion.

    Physician-Investors are trying to make sense of an unprecedented economic earthquake that has left them feeling blindsided and unsure about their financial future like never before. We believe it’s prudent, even essential to receive an unbiased second option on your individual portfolio (including your 401K, 403b, and IRA) and find out what is the minimum amount of risk you can take and still achieve your financial goals.

    We can offer you an unbiased second opinion of your investment portfolio.
