We like to keep things simple.
Life can be complicated enough. Your money shouldn't be.
We believe that when your personal finances become easier to understand, meeting your life's many benchmarks becomes attainable.
WHY YOU SHOULD WORK WITH US
Your life milestones are too important not to discuss.
We all have those days where you can’t see past dinner time, let alone plan for 20 to 30 years down the road. Perhaps a financial plan of action is in place for the next month or year, but after that your plan is a bit hazy or your needs are more complicated.
How do you start that dialogue about future plans and simplify these needs?
We're devoted to providing the tools to help you take control of your financial path and set goals into action by designing a strategic plan around them. This doesn’t mean the plan won’t change; these strategies are about getting you to a place where you feel confident that you’re going in the right direction for the long haul.
Whether it’s preparing for marriage, starting a new business, having a baby or any major life benchmark, significant life changes require financial preparation.
Let’s start the conversation today to plan your tomorrow.
ABOUT CAPITAL BENCHMARK PARTNERS, LLC
Founded Oct 2013.
Capital Benchmark Partners, LLC was founded with this mission in mind: Make financial planning straightforward and accessible for clients of all income levels.
Like most situations in life, financial success is relative. In the investment world, a benchmark is set as a measuring stick to determine how well a particular investment is doing relative to it. So, when it comes to your personal finances, you have to set your own benchmark to gauge how well you’re actually doing. As your life changes, we will work together to make adjustments to your financial plan where necessary.
Our services extend well beyond recommending investments. Our goal is to make financial planning easy for you to understand, follow, and execute so that you can confidently live the lifestyle you want.
WHO WE ARE
Helen Ngo, CFP®
Founder & CEO
While growing up, I knew three things I wanted for certain:
- Build a career around helping people succeed.
- Learn to be financially independent and secure.
- Have my own business so that I never have to ask for vacation or sick days.
It became clear to me that a career in financial planning would allow me to meet those goals. I love that it's my job to learn about the "money world" and utilize the information for my own personal planning and sharing it with my clients, family and friends, but do it in such a way that they can easily understand and benefit too. As they grow, I see myself grow.
Having worked in the financial industry for almost a decade, I’ve seen a lot of good and bad. What I have learned to be most important and strive to do in my own business is this:
Service the heck out of my clients and set clear expectations.
I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and seeing how I can help them grow. I know I’ve done my job well when a client considers me more of a friend than an advisor.
