Financial Services

Financial Planning for Individuals

Many of our clients were already successful savers who wanted a better way to avoid risk and stay organized over time. To make that vision a reality, we create thoughtful financial plans independent from the influence of a large parent entity or brokerage firm powered by fee-based investments for a transparent and unbiased approach to the successful achievement of your goals. To start, we review your portfolio to identify the beneficial aspects which are working for you and expose detrimental areas before they become a problem. If conflicts exist with your stated goals, we will recommend potential strategies which may be better suited for your long-term success. The pros and cons of each approach are explained in plain language using interactive charts and detailed summaries to easily understand how our guidance today can help tomorrow.

Portfolio Management

We use fee-based portfolios of professionally managed investments specialized to achieve your goals of growth, liquidity, tax savings, security, and sustainable income without unnecessary risk or speculation.

401K Rollovers

Simplify your financial life and make managing your retirement plans easy while keeping your savings growing in a tax advantaged account. 401(k) plans leave it up to you alone to navigate hidden pitfalls which can erode the value of your account and leave less income for you to spend when you leave work behind. Consolidating your old 401(k)s into a single rollover IRA can give you access to investments that are better suited to larger dollar values which can enhance the income you have to spend in retirement and make your money last.

Estate Planning & Trusts

Estate planning is all about protecting your loved ones when you can't be there to help them yourself. Planning for the future and ensuring your final wishes are carried out exactly as you wish does not have to be a complex process. How your money and property are passed to the ones you love the most varies by location and can have high unexpected costs and negative financial consequences. We can identify the obstacles to a quick and orderly disposition of your final wishes to preserve the value of your monetary gifts without high unexpected costs or the public process of probate without delay to secure your legacy as a loving and generous benefactor.

Retirement Planning

Creating the right financial plan can help you achieve the retirement you envision or preserve the retirement that you're already in. We help you learn how to organize your finances today in order to support the retirement vision of tomorrow. We start our relationship making sure we have a clear understanding of your retirement goals and income needs. We look at your potential sources of income, review your portfolio and factor in taxes and inflation to give you a reasonable estimate of how much you can afford to spend during retirement. While you are working, we implement strategies to position you for better returns on your investments with lower possible risks and when you leave work behind we address the decisions you must make about your savings when you retire, such as choosing a proper distribution plan to make your savings last.
