Personal. Wealth Management.
More than a phrase, this is the heart of everything we do for our clients.
We know that your life and your financial goals are as unique as your DNA. That’s why we strive to build genuine, lasting relationships that enable us to quickly understand and support you through any changes that you and your family might face.
For this reason, we provide comprehensive financial planning and create customized portfolios specifically designed for you. And if things change, we’ll be right there to guide you through your next challenge or help you take advantage of the next opportunity.
RETIREMENT PLANNING AND PRIORITY SETTING
We focus on retirement planning. Because we've found that by taking this "long-view" your other priorities will also be addressed.
At the core of our planning, we will work with you to set up a “Household Balance Sheet" or, as we like to say around here, your HHBS. More than a financial road-map, this provides a base from which we can start your plan and begin the process of your life-time strategies. We'll look at your wages, your projected pension and social security, we'll include the sale (as well as the timing of the sale) of your business, or real estate, or anything else that will support your retirement. If you want to take a break from work (really, people do this!) we'll show you how much this will cost. We'll make sure we cover your medical costs. And we'll plan your retirement income around strategies that will reduce your taxes thereby increasing the amount you have to spend on ... whatever you want to spend it on!
Then, as things change (such as tax laws, regulations, your interests, your life) we'll adjust the plan so that you'll always have a clear picture of where you are, and where you are heading.
TAX AND ESTATE PLANNING
We’ll review your estate plan so that it is up to date and still supports your legacy and other goals. When necessary, we’ll work with your estate planning attorney to explain any changes or, if you prefer, introduce you to one of our partners so that your estate plan is up to date.
We’ll also review your previous tax return(s) and current income to see if there are ways for you to reduce your taxes. As we plan, we’ll work with your CPA or, if you prefer, one of our partners to create an effective strategy that is right for you.
INVESTMENT STRATEGIES AND MANAGEMENT
Your investment plan is created to support your unique goals, challenges, concerns, and dreams. When we design your portfolio consider your entire wealth so that your investment account complements your other assets. If your situation changes, we'll adjust your portfolio to reflect what is happening in your life.
Our investment philosophy is neither passive (buy-hold-pray) nor active (what's the next best thing). Instead, we take a disciplined approach that regularly reviews and rebalances your portfolio to keep it up to date with your goals.
Depending on your situation, your wealth plan could be facing many risks. The loss of a job, an injury, death; these are the ones we think of first. But what if you own a business or are a partner in a professional firm? Suddenly, your risks have grown and you may need to have an operating, partnership, or buy-sell agreement.
If you own real estate or rental properties your insurance and corporate structure may need to be looked at. We want to help you protect what you've earned and will help you design the strategies needed to do just that.
BENEFIT AND RETIREMENT PLANS
We’ll review and make recommendations on the benefit and retirement plans you have at your work so that these too, can be incorporated in your comprehensive plan. And if you prefer, we can directly manage your 401(k) plan as a part of our comprehensive service. You can read more about this by CLICKING HERE.
