AtlasMark has the utmost respect for our medical doctors and those who dedicate their careers to helping others. We take great pride in the fact that we have been entrusted to manage numerous physicians’ and surgeons’ wealth throughout Texas.
Many physicians believe if they can save a life, then managing money ought to be easy. However, this self-certainty eventually leads to countless mistakes. Compounded over many years, this could cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars before they realize they need help. Physicians do not necessarily make more financial mistakes than the public at large, but because their salaries are three to four times that of the average person, mistakes are amplified.
As a physician, you have spent eight or more years developing your specialized knowledge and expertise. Thus, you have a shorter working life compared others and fewer years to compound your retirement nest egg. Additionally, your higher salary comes with increased tax, and you will likely receive little to no financial aid to fund your children’s college education. This makes it all the more important to properly invest your money sooner and to avoid costly financial blunders.
Our physicians typically produce an extra $50k – $750k on an after-tax basis each year, and our job is to protect, grow, and nourish that wealth. We have a long history of serving physicians, and over that time we have developed a unique system catered to the profession that has resulted in long-term financial success.
