Plotkin Financial Advisors, LLC, implements a customized approach to financial planning that focuses on helping you clarify your goals, plan for the future, and build a legacy. Our Certified Financial Planners(TM) become your personal resource and understand that no one individual or family is the same. This is why we take the time to get to know you, determine how we can help, and identify with your concerns as well as your goals. It is through this discovery that we offer comprehensive solutions that alleviate these concerns and move you towards your goals.

Portfolio Management

How well you invest will dictate the resources you have available to meet your objectives and goals. This is why it is imperative that our advisors know your goals as we craft your plan because these will influence how we invest your portfolio. It is through our investment analysis process that we will determine if your existing portfolio is inefficient or suitable for you. In analyzing your investments, we review all of your accounts to summarize your allocation between equities (stocks), fixed-income (bonds) and cash. These include your personal and work retirement accounts, taxable investment accounts and cash reserves in savings and CDs. Next, we review your specific investments to verify the quality of the investments as well as how much risk is associated with the underlying investments. Ultimately, our investment decisions and recommendations will help build you a portfolio that: Generates enough income you can live off of in retirement Offers growth potential so that it appreciates Reduces security risks through diversification Allows you to sleep at night Our investment planning process makes it possible to choose the most suitable investments for you. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not offer a cookie-cutter investment proposal with our financial plans, but rather a customized portfolio that is designed to meet your specific goals and objectives.

If you are planning your retirement or are currently retired, our retirement planning solutions help project your income needs and determine an effective withdrawal strategy that is not only sustainable but is also feasible.
