Case Central, LLC is the first portal of its kind to be introduced to the independent financial services professional and is one of the most advanced systems available in the financial industry.
Case Central teams are led by CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ (CFP®s) that help ensure you give appropriate and balanced recommendations that meet your clients’ needs. Not all clients are the same – they may have a wide variety of different planning and product needs, which can make it challenging to be prepared for every scenario. That’s where Case Central comes in. Boasting extensive, hands-on financial services experience, your case manager partners with a team of case design specialists who prepare comprehensive case analysis through Case Central’s secure web-based portal. When needed, Case Central will partner with certified public accountants (CPAs) and Chartered Financial Analysts® (CFA®s) to ensure your clients receive comprehensive financial reports and analysis.
Using the Case Central secure web-based portal, you can easily upload key case information and documents gathered through the Strategy Assessment®. The Case Central team comprehensively analyzes the case to assist you in selecting the appropriate proprietary software program to generate the financial report(s) or tax strategy. They make record-keeping easy by allowing you to track and document the progress and development of your case every step of the way - a transparent evolution that greatly bolsters the process with clients. To assist with your transparency and documentation, the team conducts their work based on the documents you upload to the Case Central portal, which are available to the Case Central team when appropriate, but always available to your clients in their Generational Vault. When transparency, documentation and disclosure are enabled by technology, serving the needs of your clients becomes a naturally integrated outcome of all that you do.
Proprietary Software Reports
Not all client scenarios are the same – our proprietary software reports and financial analysis ensures you always have the right tools to craft the appropriate solution for each client.

Portfolio Analysis Review
Our proprietary Portfolio Analysis Review (PAR) process gives your clients a detailed breakdown and thorough written analysis of their investment portfolios.
