Janice Barker, CTFA, opens All Inclusive Investment Consulting LLC

Janice Barker is a certified trust and financial advisor (CTFA) who, for 13 years, previously managed investments with one of the local-area providers. She recently established All Inclusive Investment Consulting LLC, a firm with the primary focus of comprehensive financial planning (both general and retirement-specific), as well as advice and guidance for individuals in need of objective feedback before they commit to a plan of action.

To elaborate, Barker said, “When I managed investments for clients they often compartmentalized their discussions: investments with the account manager, taxes with the tax specialist, transfer concerns with the attorney…when in fact all of these things are interrelated and need to be considered as a whole. How one area is managed will have an enormous impact on the remaining areas, so they need to be coordinated. Planning for retirement is the most obvious arena for this service. But it also applies to general organizing and planning throughout major events of a person’s financial life, not just when the target retirement date is drawing near. This kind of oversight gives the client the ability to make informed decisions, and will save them time, money, and — importantly — unexpected or unwanted outcomes.”

Janice can be reached at or 970-987-1842.
