Comprehensive financial planning
A personal approach
Some people feel anxious about the initial planning conversation. Our process puts you at ease and helps you prioritize your goals. We will begin by asking about your family, financial situation, goals, and concerns. If you decide to move forward, we will then develop a customized financial plan that will address your needs and complex challenges.
Whether you are a time-stretched executive or a retiree, simplifying your life is critical so you will focus on what matters most to you.
With a focus on long-term income planning, our team can work with you to help preserve your lifestyle and livelihood in retirement.
We develop sophisticated portfolio strategies through the use of efficient tax structures such as trusts and philanthropic vehicles. This enables you to pursue your wealth preservation and legacy goals.
We will assess your current and future insurance needs. We view risk management as a tool to help protect your family’s assets, replace income, and create a legacy for future generations.
Advice for your family’s needs
Working with entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and multigenerational families, we are dedicated to understanding your unique situation. Our focus is on the individual, not products. We determine the right solutions for your needs.
Staying on top of the ever-changing global economy and world capital markets is more than a full-time job. Our process is similar to that used by endowments, foundations, and institutional investors. We align ourselves with quality, independent money managers to ensure the proper asset allocation strategies are in place to work toward your objectives.
There is a significant difference between investment returns and what an investor earns after taxes. That is why we focus on tax-efficient strategies by tax harvesting throughout the year in order to help maximize after-tax returns.
We help demystify investments by being straightforward and clear about how we are handling your money. Because we make objective investment decisions, we can avoid any conflicts of interest. Our disciplined investment selection process looks at all solutions as potential tools for building customized portfolios.
Through our comprehensive due diligence and planning process, we help determine your goals for growth, income needs, and tolerance to risk. We craft an asset allocation that supports your financial plan. Once your investment plan is implemented, we monitor your portfolio based on your goals and broader economic conditions. We regularly communicate with you to make sure you stay on track.
