About Drucker Wealth –
Hi! My name is Gideon Drucker CFP® AIF® ECA. I run the Wealth Builder Division here at Drucker Wealth.
Our focus is in working with individuals and young families (aged 35-49) that are motivated to build a financial roadmap for their future & want to do so with a trusted partner that will grow with them as their lives evolve.
We created this division approximately 5 years ago after I realized how much I love working with motivated professionals in the decades BEFORE retirement age. We want to be the team that our clients look to for help/guidance as they move through’s life’s milestones (marriage, kids, home purchase, education, career changes etc.) We will help get them there!
But more on that to come. Here’s a bit of background about our team:
We are a 3rd generation financial planning firm based out of NYC. We are a family business and operate as such. Our clients are people we genuinely love working with (for the most part, c’mon…there’s always one or two!) and that truly appreciate & value our support. We operate with the mindset of “brutal honesty and radical transparency,” and strongly believe in educating our clients on how behavior will impact financial preparedness.
We operate virtually and have clients all over the country. The two communities we serve are pre-retirees and Mid-Career HENRY’s (High Earners Not Rich Yet), each with separate areas of focus & different Drucker Wealth Lead Advisors (Lance and Kitty for the former…Gideon and Autumn for the latter)
I like to think that we have the best of both worlds when it comes to the financial planning/wealth management industry.
On one hand, we are a proven firm with a 70-year track record, longtime multi-generational clients that love us, and a strong 12-person team core infrastructure. In other words, we are not a pop-up shop, a startup, or an early-stage firm trying to build to a baseline level of competency. We are already there.
At the same time, we are an independent financial planning firm that is adaptable/nimble and in the midst of exponential growth inside of our Wealth Builder Division...which is why we are looking for a new paraplanner to work hand-in-hand with our existing team and growing clientele. We are constantly re-inventing ourselves and re-imagining the firm we want to be.
For example, over the last 5 years, we have become a Planning First Firm. This means that, now, every single new client relationship begins with a flat-fee financial plan before any “products” or “accounts” are even discussed (investment recommendations, life insurance, retirement accounts). After the plan, clients are free to implement our recommendations with our team (and most do…becoming wealth management clients) or they can go on their way…but that is entirely up to them once we conclude the initial plan engagement! This advice-centric planning model has revolutionized our business and led to deeper, more complete client relationships. We have no minimum investment asset requirement which means we are able to work with clients at the beginning of their financial journey as long as they are ready/comfortable to go through this initial Financial Life Plan®. Along with our planning first mentality, we believe that we are building the firm of the future:
We heavily utilize modern technology to make our work efficient, both internally and externally, as we collaborate with clients. Incorporating tax planning & estate planning part of our financial planning offerings A turnkey business development program that brings us warm prospects that fit our niche on a weekly basis…we communicate to prospects/clients in a more authentic (I would call it “human”) way than the wealth management world is known for. A focus on life planning- Our planning is not just about “when can you retire??” but focused on family planning, education, home ownership, career changes, work-life optional life planning, travel & sabbatical planning etc. Our clientele is 65% women, with a high percentage of first-time high-income earners, and the majority are those who are seeking professional financial guidance for the first time
Because it’s relevant to “why” we’re looking for a new paraplanner, you should know that I’ve been named an Investopedia Top 100 Financial Advisor, a Forbes Top Next-Gen Advisor, and a Business Insider Top 23 Financial Planner for Millennials and a Financial Advisor Magazine Young Advisor to Watch. I’ve been fortunate to learn from some of the best in the industry (most specifically my dad Lance, our firm President and CEO) and I’m excited to closely train and mentor the new talent that comes to Drucker Wealth. We operate using EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) to help us create a transparent, organized and structured work environment. Our goal is to continue to grow as a boutique firm that provides unparalleled service to clients, while also supporting our team to live their own ideal lifestyle.
Our company core values are:
• Optimism • Passion • Gritty • Being Proactive
The application deadline is October 1st.
