Strategic Alliance: A firm-based affiliation opportunity for legal and tax professionals A Strategic Alliance is a coordinated effort between your firm and Strategic Financial Concepts to serve mutual clients. Although the two firms are separate, the client views us as one team, offering multiple services to help them reach their ultimate financial goals. Clients benefit from full coordination and communication among all advisors. These arrangements are designed to produce higher levels of client retention and satisfaction, leading to increased revenues for all participating firms.
