Most financial magazines and Web sites speak to the planning needs of the average Americanan audience of over 200 million people and the target of most advertising revenue. Simultaneously, the majority of investment advisory, law, and accounting firms focus on this large market because it is more profitable to provide "cookie-cutter" financial planning to the masses than highly specialized planning to the elite. As a result, over twenty million affluent families and millions of hard-working Americans who strive to be wealthy struggle to find financial and legal information that speaks to their unique needs and goals. These people need more than "off-the-rack" planning advice, which is why financial expert Christopher Jarvis and asset protection attorney David Mandellauthors of the well-received personal planning guide Wealth Protection: Build and Preserve Your Financial Fortresshave created Wealth Secrets of the Affluent.
Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Wealth Secrets of the Affluent reveals the ten "keys" to financial success that super-affluent families have used for decades.

This book examines the essential lessons to building a fortune and protecting assets, explains the many pitfalls associated with this endeavor, and outlines the strategies and techniques that can be used to overcome these challenges. Along the way, you'll also discover why conventional financial solutions just don't make sense for the affluent individual or wealthy family.
Throughout the book, industry experts Jarvis and Mandell share their extensive experiences in this field as they address issues such as: why the Nobel Prize-winning asset allocation model used by most firms will fail for affluent clients, which underused financial vehicles should be integral parts of affluent family planning, why taxes can't be left out of the planning equation, and how to determine if your present advisors are failing youand what to do about it if they are.
