My Services

Portfolio Management

Investment management is offered for clients who want help implementing the investment recommendations laid out in their financial plan. It is also available on a stand alone basis. Using our experienced strategists, we'll build, implement, and monitor a portfolio that's right for you and we'll do it with a straightforward fee structure. When it comes to fees, you should know what you're paying your advisor and how we apply those fees to your investments when we're providing investment management. We'll explain our fee structure so you have confidence that you are receiving value from us and your questions will be answered.

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning is offered through our financial planning services or in conjunction with investment management services. Retirement planning can be a daunting task due to all the variables. Variables such as: When should I or when can I retire? When should I take my Social Security? Should I even plan on Social Security being available? How long should I expect to live and plan for? How much will cost of living and healthcare costs and premiums increase? What will happen if I die younger but my spouse lives a long time? What if the stock or real estate markets crash? What about tax increases? What if I/we need help as we get more frail? We evaluate your current situation and these variables and the probability of you being able to sustain your retirement income and investments as long as you live. We can then help you develop a clear roadmap to help you achieve your goals.

401K Rollovers

Many people have a large percentage of their investments in a 401K due to the convenience of investing pre-tax dollars directly from a paycheck, and also due to employer matches. While a valuable tool for accumulation, 401K plans are not always the best option for retirement distribution. We help clients objectively evaluate their options to determine which one best meets their goals and va values. values.
