TriPrescient IDEA

The TriPrescient IDEA is our financial planning process, made up of three high level steps, to achieve your financial future. The TriPrescient name represents the steps in our financial planning process and the benefit from seeing it through. “Tri” is the prefix meaning three, and “Prescient” is having or showing awareness of and preparation for the future. 

1)  Identify – Identify your goals
2)  Design – Design a personalized plan to meet those goals
3)  Execute – Execute and monitor the plan
➢ Achieve Your Financial Future

What We Do 

The TriPrescient Advantage

Process Driven Planning

The TriPrescient IDEA (Identify. Design. Execute. ➢ Achieve Your Financial Future) is our goal-based financial planning process. IDEA, combined with our personal approach and integral technology, is our formula for creating an engaging and rewarding planning experience for our clients.


Our financial planning software allows you, the client, to determine your personal and financial goals. We partner with you in the planning experience. We collaborate with you to create a personalized financial plan for your unique situation and administer your plan implementation.

Affordable Quality Plans

Our proprietary financial plans are easily readable and provide actionable next-step guidance. Our plans offer significant value above, and often for a lower cost, than investment management alone. Our unique fee-only compensation model ensures our clients receive advice only in their best interests.

Professional Portfolio Management

Our clients benefit from the relationships we have in place with Betterment for Advisors to provide portfolio management services and with Dimensional for investment solutions. Betterment and Dimensional work with a select group of advisors who share a similar investment philosophy.

About Us

Financial Planning Philosophy

At TriPrescient we believe financial planning is important because it provides perspective and balance - allowing you to plan for the future, provide security for your family, and live for today with less worry about what’s to come. Our job is not to tell you how to spend or save your money, but rather to give insight so you can make informed decisions about the goals most important to you. This insight allows you to see the trade-off between spending today and saving for the future. Our financial planning process helps provide perspective so you can achieve a balance for each and keeps you on track to achieve your goals.

Investment Philosophy

At TriPrescient we believe in a disciplined, long term, cost effective approach to investing. We believe diversification is one of the most effective ways to manage risk. We believe in a logical approach to investing that removes emotion and guesswork from the investing process that is typical of stock picking and active management of funds.

TriPrescient has partnered with Betterment for Advisors to provide portfolio management services for our clients. TriPrescient also has an established relationship with Dimensional, allowing our clients to access their unique and effective investment solutions. TriPrescient, Betterment, and Dimensional share a similar investment philosophy and the primary principles for investing success. These principles begin with creating a sound financial plan, followed by implementing an investment strategy through a diversified, disciplined approach, taking into consideration cost, value, and taxes. Follow these links for more information on Betterment's investment philosophy, their portfolio offerings, and Dimensional's unique investing approach.

Our Clients

Financial planning can benefit everyone, and at TriPrescient we are open to helping anyone wishing to engage our services. Our clients are typically in their 20's to 50's and range from single professionals, to couples at various stages in their careers and family life, to entrepreneurs and small business owners. Have a look below at a couple of our typical client situations. If the descriptions resonate with you, grab some time on our calendar so we can learn more about you and share how TriPrescient can help you Achieve Your Financial Future!

James & Elizabeth – The Busy Couple

James (40) and Elizabeth (38) have been married for several years. Together they have two children, Leah (8) and Thomas (10). James is a small business owner. He is the only employee and provides IT consulting services to companies. Elizabeth is a registered nurse at a nearby hospital. Together they have a solid upper-middle class income.

Their mortgage is $3,200/month and they have a home equity loan of $25,000 that they are paying off for home renovations last year. Their children are active and stay busy with piano lessons, playing soccer, and swimming. Elizabeth is fortunate to have health care benefits for the family through her employer, but family coverage is still expensive. Both James and Elizabeth contribute to retirement plans, but they don’t know if they contribute enough or have selected the right investments. They are also worried that their children will be saddled with student loan debt if they don’t set aside funds for education.

They drive practical cars, one of which is still being paid off. They don’t try to keep up with the neighbors who are always taking nice trips, but they are not sure how everyone else affords those non-essentials when it feels like they are just able to keep up with current expenses. They want to enjoy today without constantly worrying about their financial future. However, between work, extra-curricular activities, and family time, creating a financial plan to save for the future has always been a priority for tomorrow. After a recent conversation, James and Elizabeth decide they are ready to talk with a financial planner to get a new perspective, gain clarity, and organize their financial life.

Charlotte – Held Back by debt

Charlotte (28) is single with no children and has a good career in the marketing industry as a graphic designer. Charlotte has been out of college for several years. She has worked for her current employer for the past three years and has a solid income for her age and profession.

Charlotte currently rents an apartment. She also has $20,000 in credit card debt and $35,000 in student loans that she is still carrying from her college years and trying to pay off, and as a result has just an average credit score. Between these larger expenses and the typical monthly bills, she is frustrated that she never seems to have any money left over at the end of the month to save for the future. She does not like the feeling of living paycheck to paycheck.

She does not have much in the way of investments other than a small balance in her employer 401(k) plan. Charlotte feels fortunate to have health and other benefits through her employer, but she isn’t sure if she has made the right choices when it comes to her health care coverage, 401(k) investments, and other benefit options.

Charlotte would like to start setting aside money for a house down payment, but that possibility seems far off from where she is now. She feels that she could really benefit from some professional financial advice, but she is not sure if any financial professionals work with clients who have limited investment assets. After another month of frustration, Charlotte decides to do some research to find and talk with a financial planner who works with clients like her.

Our Company

Chris Ladd Photo

Chris Ladd

Founder & CEO

After receiving his Bachelor of Industrial Engineering degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Mr. Ladd established his career as a consultant and software developer for corporate financial systems. After 20+ years in this field and having always enjoyed an affinity for personal finance, Mr. Ladd earned his Masters of Business Administration in Financial Planning from California Lutheran University in 2011.

After completing his MBA, Mr. Ladd successfully completed the Certified Financial Planning (CFP) certification exam requirement and is currently a candidate for CFP Board certification.

While earning his degree, Mr. Ladd focused his research on “Developing a Software Implementation Plan for a Financial Planning Practice” as an independent study project. The experience was invaluable and allowed Mr. Ladd the opportunity to research much of the software and innovations available in the financial planning marketplace. Mr. Ladd’s experience as a software developer allowed him unique insight into efficiencies to be gained through proper software integration, which in turn allows for a better client experience.

With a client-centered focus in mind and his consulting background providing a foundation for working with clients, Mr. Ladd structured the firm to take advantage of existing technologies and outsourcing opportunities. The result was TriPrescient Financial Services, Inc. – a financial planning firm with the mission “To provide an empowering and engaging planning experience, delivering insight and bringing financial balance to our clients.”

What We Do

Working with TriPrescient

Start the Conversation

From the initial conversation you will notice what sets us apart at TriPrescient – we listen. We don’t engage in hard selling practices. In fact, the only thing we sell are our services, and we cannot do that effectively without listening to understand your goals and concerns. 

At TriPrescient we truly introduce you to our financial planning process before requiring any commitment from you. Initial conversations and a 90 minute online Intro & Discovery meeting to introduce you to our planning process and the software we use are free. After the meeting you have access to continue to work with the software and explore it on your own at your own pace. We do this because we're confident that once you see the value in the financial planning process and set your financial goals, you will want to see them through.

We truly enjoy helping clients and believe the financial planning process can benefit everyone – not to mention it can be a lot of fun along the way! If you have questions or want to know more about our financial planning process or services, please contact us via email, phone, or schedule some time on our calendar and set up a time to chat.

Technology and communication

At TriPrescient we know your time is valuable, and our service model takes that into consideration. We have implemented a number of technologies to make our communications more efficient while still providing you with the personal service you expect.

While we enjoy meeting with you in person whenever possible, much of our interaction will be through online meetings. This allows us to be more efficient with your time and easily share information as we progress through the planning process. As a client you will have online access to the client portal with the ability to view and work on your plan, update your personal information, view reports, and communicate with your financial planner.

The TriPrescient Financial Planning process

The TriPrescient IDEA is our financial planning process, made up of three high level steps, to achieve your financial future.

1) Identify – Identify your goals
2) Design – Design a personalized plan to meet those goals
3) Execute – Execute and monitor the plan
➢ Achieve your financial future

At TriPrescient our financial planning process is very collaborative and interactive. As the planner, we provide you with the best unbiased advice for your situation, and recommendations are made after taking into consideration your entire financial picture. As the client, of course you make the final decisions regarding your financial plan and prioritize funding for the goals most important to you.

A financial plan is constantly evolving. Life events happen that affect us personally and financially. When these events occur, together we update your financial plan to reflect these new realities and adjust the path taken to reach your goals.

Comprehensive Planning

At TriPrescient our comprehensive financial plans take into consideration all aspects of your financial situation. As you can see in the diagram, we review and plan for many areas applicable to your personal circumstances and, with your input, outline actionable steps for implementing your financial plan.

Comprehensive Financial Planning graphicEveryone’s personal goals and financial situations are different, and some plans take more time than others to develop, implement, and maintain. During our discovery process we will evaluate your financial situation and goals and clearly outline our fee before proceeding.

Some of the considerations taken into account when determining the comprehensive planning fee include:

  • Planning for one or two people (married/single)
  • Children (higher education planning)
  • Investments / Types of investments
  • Single or multiple incomes
  • Extended family considerations
  • Business ownership
  • Special planning requirements
  • Overall plan complexity

Below are examples to use as a general guideline for what complexity level your specific circumstances might fall into. A final determination will be made on a case by case basis and clearly communicated after the initial discovery process before any payment is required.

Complexity LevelExample circumstances for complexity level
Level 1
Single, one income, no children, investments in company 401k, additional investments
Level 2
Married, children, two incomes, investments in company 401k, IRAs, additional investments
Level 3
Married, children, one or two incomes, business owner, multiple types of investments, extended family considerations

Plan Implementation

Once we have developed your comprehensive financial plan, we continue our collaboration and work with you to implement the plan. An action plan for implementation is included as part of your financial plan. Some steps of the plan are completed by you, some by the planner, and some jointly. We help coordinate tasks and provide guidance along the way.

Often implementation of your financial plan will include working with other financial professionals such as accountants, attorneys, or insurance brokers. The extent to which we engage outside resources depends entirely on the needs of your personal financial plan. Any fees for these resources are paid by the client separately and directly to the third party.

After the key provisions of your plan have been implemented we continue to maintain your plan and monitor the progress towards your goals. Financial planning is an ongoing process. Life changes often necessitate changes in goals and, as a result, your financial plan. When these events occur we review your financial plan and adjust it accordingly. We also review your plan with you annually to ensure things are on track and make any necessary updates.

The purpose of a financial plan is to allow you to set your goals and establish a path to reach those goals without worrying everyday about the ups and downs of the market. However, many clients like the ability to see what certain adjustments to their plan might mean to their overall probability of success and to keep a pulse on their finances. Once the recommended plan has been developed, we provide our clients with an online dashboard where they can continue to explore options and see the details of their plan.

Portfolio Management

TriPrescient has partnered with Betterment for Advisors to provide portfolio management services for clients engaged in our Investment Management Service. Betterment offers a variety of portfolio strategies, including those built by Betterment, Vanguard, Goldman Sachs, and BlackRock as well as custom Dimensional fund portfolios. Socially responsible, taxable, and tax-deferred portfolio options are available. All portfolios are tailored to client risk tolerances, goals, and investment time frames.

TriPrescient’s strategic alliance with Betterment is a significant benefit for our clients. We share the same investment philosophy – the belief in a disciplined long term approach to investing, diversification, academic research, and market efficiency. Betterment collaborates with like-minded advisors who understand the benefits of Betterment’s investment approach.

Why TriPrescient?

Trusted relationships

At TriPrescient we value each of our client relationships and act solely in the best interests of our clients at all times. When working with TriPrescient, clients should expect an exceptional level of personal service and enjoy the financial planning process. TriPrescient’s financial planning process is a collaborative one, and we work with our clients at every step to achieve their personal and financial goals.


TriPrescient’s Comprehensive Planning Service and the development, implementation, and maintenance of a comprehensive financial plan provides significantly more value than paying a portfolio manager simply to manage investments. As part of our service, clients have access to professional portfolio management through Betterment for Advisors at an affordable cost.

Fee structure

Clients should expect a clear understanding of our financial planning fees, and typically appreciate our straight-forward, affordable fee structure. Our fee structure aligns our goals with the goals of our clients and reduces potential conflicts of interest. Check out our Fee Structure Benefits.

Fixed Fee Projects

On occasion clients engage our services to complete a specific project on a fixed fee basis. Fixed Fee Projects can include development of a stand-alone comprehensive financial plan, a retirement plan, a higher education savings plan, or some other type of specific financial plan.

The fixed rate for creating a comprehensive financial plan is based on one of three levels of complexity of the client's financial situation at the time of engagement. This fee is for the creation of the financial plan only and does not include ongoing services such as investment management, plan implementation, or ongoing financial advice.

The client can decide after the comprehensive financial plan is prepared if they would like to enroll in the Comprehensive Planning Service. The amount paid for the plan preparation will be retroactively discounted as per the terms of the Comprehensive Planning Service and the difference will be applied to the subscription fee.

Fees for other types of plans or projects are determined on a case by case basis, based on the level of complexity and estimated time commitment. For fixed fee projects, fees are determined and communicated to the client upfront prior to beginning any work for the preparation of the plan or other deliverable. The scope and deliverables of any fixed fee project will be clearly defined. 50% of the fee is due upon signing the Financial Planning Agreement, with the balance due upon delivery to the client.

Hourly Fee Projects

Clients seeking financial advice for a specific situation or only a financial plan and not wishing to engage in our Comprehensive Planning Service or Fixed Fee Projects options can engage our services on an hourly basis. On an hourly basis, time is charged at the rate of $200/hr.

Fee Structure Benefits

The industry standard in the financial planning profession historically has been to charge clients strictly a percentage of assets under management (AUM). At TriPrescient, our fee model is better for several reasons.

  1. More value for your money - We always begin with Financial Planning, but you pay for only what you need for your personal financial situation: Financial Planning only, Financial Planning with core investment management, or Financial Planning with additional investment management needs.
  2. Subscription service model - Fixed cost for Financial Planning and investment advice with annual rebalancing on unlimited held-away assets and AUM up to $500,000. AUM fees only apply to managed assets over $500,000.
  3. Stable subscription costs - The subscription service cost is locked in every three years and guaranteed not to increase during that time.
  4. More growth in tax deferred or tax free accounts - Subscription fees are paid directly and not taken from managed accounts, resulting in additional compound growth in those accounts over time.
  5. Fee-only model reduces conflicts of interest - The fee-only model aligns our goals with yours and reduces conflicts of interest. Acting in a fiduciary capacity, we will always act in your best interests and provide the best advice for your financial situation.
  6. Significant investment management savings - Compared to typical asset managers charging 1.0% or more of AUM for Investment Management only (See Hypothetical Fee Structure Comparison below).
