Financial Planning for Individuals
A total holistic client endeavor is our approach and what we have learned over the years that offers both the client and the advisor the best mutually rewarding, sustainable, conservative, and simple way of meeting the financial goals fo clients. Your "personal financial strategy" report that is updated and available to clients, their other professional advisors (i.e. Bankers, CPA, Attorney) helps to assure their goals and monitor our collective progress in meeting their goals and attaining financial security. We can offer products of all firms and are not limited to proprietary solutions. We have straightforward costs and how we earn our keep.
As a specialist in retirement planning our recommendations are various depending on the situation and often are derived through our professional knowledge given my firms 100 year history. As a very important part of the client total retirement portfolio, 401k's and the like require detailed analysis, allocation and constant monitoring, which we provide. Our collective research on early commencement of aggressive allocations with a gentle reduction of risk as size, age and economic situations transpire helps us in directing, allocating and analyzing 401k portfolios for clients. In a word, we help maximize your 401k or other similar retirement plan through our directives. As clients near retirement, emphasis is given on sustainability over growth. With a constant eye on risk, generally risk is lowered as retirement draws nearer. Pensions, social security, and any other income streams have a right and wrong answer as to when to commence, depending on the specific situation. We use our proprietary, easy to understand income planning tools to help the client determine when to turn on what income stream. Safety, sustainability, and simplicity are the ways we help clients achieve success during the retirement stage.
Old employer 401k's are often the remnants of career changes which so frequently occur this day and age. Simplicity and control dominate the review process and most recommendations are to take control of all assets, thereby rolling the 401k into a highly controllable personal plan with virtually unlimited investment options. A review of investment options, tax liabilities and personal planning determines the availability of continued tax deferred investment options. Our analysis helps clarify the decision to cash out, hold or rollover a 401k plan. Most often early withdrawals from 401k plans can avoid tax penalties is structured appropriately.
