WRP Wealth Transfer Planning

Complete Estate Planning That You Can Trust

At Werba Rupin Papier, we have helped guide dozens of clients through the pain and anguish of losing a spouse or parent. Financial decision making is daunting under normal circumstances. Trying to make major financial decisions while grieving the loss of a loved one is substantially more unnerving. We understand the extreme pressure faced by these clients and work diligently to slow their decision-making process as much as possible. We strive to give people as much time and psychological support as they need to enable them to move forward purposefully and with confidence. We are proud to say that many of our strongest relationships are with our clients who we helped cope with the loss of a loved one.

Werba Rubin Papier takes great pride in helping our clients lower their financial stress by developing customized strategies based on their unique goals and resources. Our primary goal is to create a financial plan based on logic, discipline and sound investment principles enabling our clients to achieve a sense of peace and calm. With all the investment “noise” in the financial media, we strive to eliminate emotionalism that frequently sabotages financial success from our clients’ decision-making process. Our wealth management process focuses initially on guiding our clients successfully through their lifetime. We also help our clients develop efficient strategies to transfer their wealth to their children and grandchildren.
