Crescendo Financial Planners, Inc.
Fee-Only financial planner located in Oak Brook, IL, serving clients locally and across the country
Crescendo was born from Elizabeth’s quest to help people like herself gain control of their financial lives. She strives to provide the information that people need and to be able to recommend solutions that are right for that person and their situation. As she says, “You are a multi-faceted person. Your personal life includes your career, your family, your hobbies, etc. Your financial life is also multi-faceted. It includes your home, your business, your investments, your taxes, etc. I look at everything because one facet of your financial life can affect the others. They all have to work together in harmony.”

Fee-Only, Holistic Advice for Better Financial Decisions and Fewer Worries
Holistic financial planning is a process, not an event. It focuses on your goals, integrates all areas of your financial life, recognizes how your beliefs and attitudes impact the financial decisions you make, and makes adjustments as your circumstances change.
As fee-only financial advisors, we sell no products and receive no commissions. Instead, you pay us an annual retainer that covers all our meetings and full access to us at no additional charge whenever you have questions or your circumstances change. Knowing in advance exactly how much you are paying for advice and understanding that your advisor puts your interests first brings peace of mind.
Contact us to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation initial consultation to learn more about how we can help you make the financial decisions that lead to financial independence.
