Meet Leslie Ransom
Indie Financial Planning is a woman-run, fee only financial planning firm with a background in arts & entertainment. Before becoming a CFP® Professional, I spent over 20 years working in the independent music industry. I have a unique awareness of the challenges facing artists, creatives, or anyone looking to build a career or business not tied to a traditional 9-5 position. IFP caters to self-employed entrepreneurs or anyone looking to plan for a future on their own terms.
I founded IFP as an alternative to a financial industry widely viewed as only serving the very wealthy. There are no investment minimums to work with IFP. We are an independent resource ready to partner with you when you are ready to take control of your financial life.
Whatever your planning needs -from investments to budgeting – IFP will consider the many moving parts of your situation and work with you to build a plan based on trust. We focus on planning and helping to educate you, so you are better positioned to achieve your goals.
We treat planning as a partnership. We provide you with the tools and knowledge to take control of your finances. We offer advice and expertise to answer your questions and pursue your goals. Investment management and ongoing planning allows us to create a roadmap with clients and travel that path with them adjusting to changes along the way.
I have a decade of experience as an investment advisor and financial planner. IFP is registered in the states of Illinois and California.
