Drake Advisory Group

Drake Advisory Group

The Drake Advisory Group (DAG) was formed to help Drake Software (DS) users advise their clients in the areas of Retirement, Estate, and Business Planning.  DAG functions as back office support to DS users, providing technical and strategic planning on a no fee basis to DS accounting firms nationwide.

The Most Prominent Issues that We Have Been Asked to Address

  • Protecting retirement assets from market losses. Historically, the choices have been very limited. If you want growth, put your assets at risk in the market. If you want security, put your assets in low yield fixed financial vehicles such as CD’s or bonds. Now we have a financial vehicle that has the both high growth and security. This vehicle is 100% secure with guaranteed minimum return with access to market performance. 
  • Roth Conversion studies
  • Developing individual retirement strategies
