Our Firm

Jane Black founded Black Ink Financial Planning in 1999 with the goal of assisting clients in every aspect of their financial lives. We are a full-service financial firm committed to helping you achieve your financial goals. We offer a wide range of financial products and services to individuals and business owners. We believe you will be better able to identify your goals and make prudent decisions to help reach them by providing you with access to personalized financial information.

Our firm focuses on 13 key wealth management issues that are important for you to address. We use a disciplined approach to keep you focused on where you want to go, to advise you on how to get there, and to continually remind you of the importance of implementing the strategies needed to realize your dreams.

Through our affiliation with Sigma Financial Corporation, we are supported by Sigma's extensive wealth management resources as well as its due diligence process for selecting insurance and investment providers and products.

We network with local CPAs and attorneys with whom we can confer on tax and legal matters that may impact you.

Our services are delivered in the tri-state area in a highly personalized way:

We spend sufficient time gaining a complete understanding of you, what's on your future financial horizon, how you feel about various financial issues and what the family dynamics are. This enables us to design personalized solutions to help you meet your unique needs.

We create a customized communication plan using your preferred method of communication. By doing this, we are able to keep abreast of your changing circumstances as well as to proactively contact you when we become aware of issues or life events that may impact or concern you.

We host informational and social events throughout the year that we know to be relevant to clients' interests.

Our goal is to be recognized in the community as a firm that will help equip and empower you to envision and achieve your financial dreams.  We want to be a catalyst for you to take appropriate action steps toward those goals. In doing so, we want to create an environment where you have an outstanding experience working with us.

Our clients have told us they have chosen to work with us because we are professional, knowledgeable, friendly with a comfortable communication style, caring, patient, and able to make complex subjects easy to understand.  We are more interested in serving our clients through strong and lasting relationships than in obtaining short-term personal gains.
