CHARTING YOUR COURSE TO FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE
Work-Optional Lifestyle. Early Retirement. Financial Independence. Regardless of your financial goals, the Maynes IM Financial team is committed to getting you there with a clear understanding of our process and a comfort level that allows you to sleep at night. As a result, we have developed and refined a process that charts a course for financial independence. We call it the Checklist Formula™.
While our clientele is comprised heavily of corporate executives, attorneys, healthcare and aviation professionals, our services are ideal for any goal-oriented professional who may know how to fly an Airbus A320, Boeing 737, or perform an appendectomy, but is less skilled when it comes to planning for their financial future.
We welcome clients who share our core values of trust, transparency, and attention to detail. Like moths to flame, our clients are drawn to us for our reputation for building lasting relationship and long-term excellence.
We are based in the sea turtle-friendly community of Boca Raton, Florida yet we travel across the nation to meet with a select group of clients who won’t settle when it comes to their financial future.
