Cedar Brook Financial Partners' Rebecca Bar-Shain, CFP, MBA, Teaches Business Owners About The Most Critical Financial Portfolio

CLEVELAND, OH, April 19, 2013 – Rebecca Bar-Shain, CFP®, MBA, partner at Cedar Brook, one of the largest wealth management firms in the region, works with business owners, professionals and families to understand their financial picture and develop a plan to capture opportunities and coordinate all aspects of their financial lives.

According to Bar-Shain, a fundamental step in building financial stability is to create a strong risk management portfolio, which includes life, disability, long-term care, health, and property and casualty insurance policies. “It is much harder to recover from a financial loss due to a disability, pre-mature death and/or long term care expenses than it is to recover from a drop in the stock market,” said Bar-Shain. “And the good news is that there are tools to mitigate the risks listed above. Disability insurance is often overlooked but arguably the most important coverage a working individual can own as it protects the income you bring to your household on a monthly basis. If you were to become disabled and unable to work you would no longer have income to meet your expenses or your goals. Life insurance is a risk management tool, but it can also serve as an important asset in your portfolio. There are several kinds of life insurance available and each type suits a different need,” continued Bar-Shain.
