Retirement Planning

Retirement planning isn't something to be done once. We help you maximize opportunities and avoid pitfalls throughout your retirement years. We follow a proven process to ensure we consider all angles so you can retire confidently in the Treasure Valley.

Estate Planning & Trusts

Discussing personal matters among family members can be difficult. However, neglecting these conversations can cause more stress within our families. As your trusted advisor, we are uniquely positioned to help you facilitate these discussions. You will experience a great sense of relief as you share your wishes with your loved ones. As you put these plans in place, your family will be able to better prepare to carry out your desires when the time comes. Our team of highly experienced estate planners and attorneys allows us to coordinate the creation of estate planning documents that will be the centerpiece of these critical conversations.

Tax Advice and Services

Tax planning is an important pillar when building your retirement plan. We will make sure that our recommendations align with a smart tax strategy. We want to maximize your opportunities while avoiding pitfalls. We can work with your existing tax professional, or use one of our contracted tax professionals to help you be proactive with your tax planning and preparation. - Find the balance between Traditional & Roth retirement contributions. - Determine if converting some of your pre-taxed dollars to Roth IRA's is a viable strategy. - Know the impact of making withdrawals from your IRA accounts. - Learn the smartest way to withdraw your retirement funds.

Investment Advice & Management

In today's world, crafting a low-cost and diversified investment portfolio is commonplace. However, expecting to ride the ups and downs of the roller coaster in a traditional buy-and-hold strategy isn't good enough. We go above & beyond these metrics because there is a better way, and we'll show you how. For our model, we drew inspiration from an advanced statistical metric used in baseball. Baseball statisticians have a metric called Wins Above Replacement (WAR). This is a way of scoring a player based upon their position. It condenses many traditional statistics into one number that represents an individual players ability to provide team wins over the average replacement. Players with a positive number provide value over the average player. We use a set of criteria to score the vast universe of funds available to invest in. This allows us to keep the best "players" on the field. We will rotate our lineup as needed to give us the best opportunities to win.


How do you charge for your services?

We collect a percentage of the assets that we manage on your behalf. This allows our incentives to be aligned with yours.

If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something?

No, as your trusted advisor we need to have the ability to manage your accounts at lighting speed, but we always communicate with you regarding why changes were made in your account. As a fiduciary, we only buy or sell something if it is in your best interests. We are not compensated for buying or selling.

How many clients do you currently manage?


Will you be the only person working with me?

I will be your lead advisor, but we have an amazing team waiting to help you achieve your goals.

Do you offer any guaranteed results?

We can't guarantee market performance, but we can guarantee we will listen well, understand your goals and make every effort to help you avoid pitfalls and capture opportunities.
