Retirement planning has generally been considered to be a daunting task. Just as we once used road maps and now use GPS, we now have tools available that can easily alert you to potential obstacles, guide you around bottlenecks and give you the best routes.
On your retirement path, we will help you to identify and understand the opportunities and potential rewards that are available when you take a proactive approach to your personal retirement situation. We have created this website and this business to help you gain a better understanding of the financial concepts behind insurance, investing, retirement, estate planning, and wealth preservation.
We look at three critical areas: Income Planning, Investment Management and Milepost Planning. In addition, we realize that many of our clients need professional counsel for estate planning, tax preparation and long term care planning.
Income planning is where the rubber meets the road! During your first meeting, you will receive a complimentary retirement analysis that allows you to clearly see where you are already headed. Once we’ve established your GPS retirement location, so to speak, you can decide on where you'd like to go, what you want to accomplish along the way, and what other steps are needed. Income planning is all about covering your expenses and maintaining your lifestyle. It's the fuel that takes you where you are going.
Now, more than ever, individuals are tired of financial advisors who are not 100% focused on their goals. We have a fiduciary responsibility to always place our clients’ interests ahead of our own. We deliver sophisticated portfolio management, personal relationships, and holistic financial planning.
As you approach retirement, there are several often little-known mileposts that present opportunities to stop and consider hazards, shortcuts, and sometimes even rerouting to a new destination. Whether due to a job or family change, inheritance, the sale of a business or property, or attaining a particular age (i.e. 55, 59-1/2, 62, 65, 70-1/2), these mileposts merit our attention.
As a courtesy, we have contacts with experienced professionals in the fields of estate planning, tax preparation and long-term care. Visit our “Professional Resources” page for further information on services provided.
