    My Services

    Portfolio Management

    As a firm, we learned how to build diversified portfolios based on the risk parameters required from a variety of different firms. At CWM, we use the combined experience of over 100 years to use asset allocation to effectively minimize risk, protect principal, and drive returns based on various risk profiles. We determine the strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities regarding the assets and their performance and make an optimum choice so as to maximize the returns from the pool of assets.

    401K Rollovers

    The key to successful 401K rollovers is for the advisor to become intimately aware of the client's employers process and ensure a smooth transition. At CWM, we do the legwork and have a seamless process to make sure the rollover is successful and with few headaches for the client.

    Retirement Planning

    Retirement planning is the process of determining retirement income goals, and the actions and decisions necessary to achieve those goals. Retirement planning includes identifying sources of income, sizing up expenses, implementing a savings program, and managing assets and risk. At CWM, we embrace retirement planning.
