What problems need to be solved?

We closely monitor your portfolio and re-visit your investment strategy when necessary.Perhaps the most important aspect of your investment strategy it its integration with estate, tax, insurance, and retirement planning. This type of comprehensive financial planning empowers you to pursue your financial objectives confidently and efficiently.There’s a lot more to say when it comes to our investing strategy. We think it’s best to do so in person. There’s a lot that we can cover in a face-to-face meeting, if our company sounds like a good fit to you. Financial Planning Whether you are saving for a child’s college education, supporting a family member with a disability, or caring for an aging parent, your family’s financial needs are constantly changing. We can help you handle the challenges and surprises in life while staying on track to meet your long-term goals.Our expertise lies in the integration of the six key elements of your financial well-being: asset management, financial planning, estate planning, insurance, tax strategy, and business consulting for business owners. We work with your tax advisor and attorney to ensure that every aspect of your financial life is managed efficiently. When necessary, we can recommend specialists to join your team of advisors so you have access to the best possible advice in every area. Estate Planning There are only three potential beneficiaries of your estate: your heirs, charity, and the government. We want to maximize the impact of your generosity to the first two. By employing tax-efficient strategies and family counseling, we can help you pass down more wealth to the next generation along with the principles and tools necessary to preserve it. Retirement Planning With an appropriate plan and investment strategy, we can help you build a comfortable income stream for retirement. It’s never too early to think about what you can do to realize your vision of post-career life. Tax Strategy Your tax return is probably the single most informative document in the financial planning process and we make it a point to review yours at the early stages of our relationship. We pride ourselves in our ability to review tax returns to uncover the strengths and weaknesses in a given situation. We collaborate with your tax preparer in an effort to avoid common tax mistakes and optimize tax savings strategies. This sometimes involves looking at forms of business ownership and/or choosing the best retirement plan for your business. Insurance Protecting what you have, providing for your loved ones in case of death or disability, and passing wealth to the next generation, this is why we pay so much attention to your insurance coverage – all forms including disability, casualty, health and life insurance. Business Consulting For business owners, personal wealth management is often intertwined with business affairs, especially when it comes to succession planning. We can help you coordinate both, manage risk and take care of your employees with optimal compensation and retirement planning.
