Individuals & Families
We help individuals and families accomplish their goals in various ways, such as college planning, retirement planning and investment management. We help these clients choose the most tax-effective way to save and accumulate wealth.
Your early working years (ages 25 – 45) are years when your career is developing and your largest financial burdens are likely a mortgage, supporting a growing family and the looming costs of college. During these years, it is important to establish an emergency fund, start saving for college and retirement, and begin to prepare for the unexpected with health, life and disability insurance.
Your later working years (ages 45 – 65) are characterized by paying college tuitions, helping children become financially independent, possibly caring for your parents and paying off your mortgage. During your later working years, it is important to understand how much retirement savings you will need, review your sources of retirement income, and prepare for the possibility of chronic illnesses with long-term care insurance.
We understand that entrepreneurs and C-suite executives are busy and often face information overload, so we’ve created a financial planning and investment management framework that helps you to make educated and well-informed decisions, without getting lost in unnecessary details.
We work closely with you to uncover risks that could disrupt your path towards financial freedom and find appropriate risk management solutions so you can focus on your business. This strategy is designed to help you find clarity and confidence in your wealth plan.
As you work hard and advance in your career, we help you navigate a wide array of financial considerations. We encourage you to save as much as you can in both your employer-sponsored retirement accounts as well as in your own traditional IRA or Roth IRA.
We create personalized wealth accumulation plans and analyze your investment choices, bearing in mind your tax situation. We are mindful of the fact that this is likely the time in your life when you are in the highest income tax bracket.
Comprehensive financial planning and disciplined investment management can make a big impact on both your professional and personal lifestyle now and in retirement.
As your working years come to an end, your priorities will shift from saving to living off your savings. During this time, you will need to decide when to stop working, maintain an income stream and decide which income sources to use, and prepare for health and long-term care costs. In fact, as retirement continues, health care spending could become your largest retirement cost and the most likely to cause the type of financial stress that thwarts your retirement planning.
We look out for your best interests, help safeguard your income, ensure an estate plan is in place, and provide the guidance you need to achieve your goals and leave a lasting legacy.
