Phil Loring Jr. Earns Certified Exit Planner Advisor (CEPA®) Designation

FORT COLLINS, Colorado (December 6, 2023) -- RTI Wealth Management is pleased to announce that Phil Loring Jr., Wealth Advisor and CEO, has earned a CEPA® designation from the Exit Planning Institute™.

Mr. Loring says, “I have worked in Financial and Wealth Services for over 20 years, and it is amazing how our industry has changed in that time. At first, it was being a simply being a stockbroker, but as financial products and future needs become more complicated, clients need a quarterback to guide them through a lot more than just their investments.

“As a business owner myself, I understand the importance of creating a solid plan well before the final exit. This process allows a business owner time to look at creating value above and beyond what they initially think that business might be worth. Entrepreneurs work hard to build a company and yet pay little attention to getting maximum value for what they created when it is time to move on.”

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA®) credential is for professional advisors who want to effectively engage more business owners. Through the process of Exit Planning (the Value Acceleration Methodology™), owners can build more valuable companies, have stronger personal financial plans, and align their personal goals.

CEPA® Advisors can offer the following services:

  • Business Value Acceleration
  • Comprehensive Financial Planning
  • Generational Wealth Planning 
  • Retirement Plan Implementation & Servicing
  • Liability Review & Risk Management
  • Investment Review & Asset Management 
  • Tax Planning & CPA Liaison
  • Quarterback for Your Advisory Team

Mr. Loring continues, “As an independent Financial Services firm, our business goes well beyond the basics of investing in stocks and mutual funds. Our dedicated team of professionals believe that the client always comes first, and it is our job to guide them to and through retirement. Our name and business foundation are based on our own Seven Pillars: Risk Management, Retirement Plan Development, Transition & Continuity Planning, Tax Planning, Trust & Estate Planning, Investment Planning, and Income Planning.

“The CEPA® designation adds value by giving our advisors the tools they need to help clients address and manage their goals, to deal with unforeseen events, and to leave a financial legacy they have spent a lifetime building to their heirs and loved ones.”

About the CEPA® Program

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor® program was specifically designed for business advisors who work closely with owners of privately held companies. The organizing principle of the program is Master Planning, the alignment of the three legs of the stool (business, personal, financial), which is executed through the implementation of a process called the Value Acceleration Methodology™. Using an executive MBA-style format, the program includes a combination of lectures, group discussions, case studies and individual exercises to introduce participants to these concepts and to reinforce skills. The program is taught by the Exit Planning Institute’s faculty of advisors, who are all sought after subject matter experts and authors.

To receive the CEPA® designation, candidates complete a rigorous 4-day program that involved approximately one hundred hours pf pre-course study, thirty hours of classroom instruction, and the successful completion of a 3-hour proctored exam.
