We provide a holistic approach to serving our clients, and the variety of services offered demonstrates our commitment to serving our clients' best interest as our fiduciary duty.
Our plans are designed with the following emphasis:
We will work closely with you to educate you on the important rules regarding IRA accounts (401k, 403b, 457, etc.). When it comes to planning for the distribution of assets currently held in IRA accounts, there are a number of potential hazards that can cost you thousands in penalties and unnecessary taxation. We will help you navigate these hazards and ensure your IRAs remain intact for you and your beneficiaries.
We will work with you and your attorney to aid in the establishment of wills, trusts and other legal documents to help you control what you own during your lifetime. This planning also sets the stage for the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, while minimizing taxes and ensuring your estate avoids probate.
We will work with you and your tax professional on strategies to reduce taxes on Social Security income, capital gains, interest-earning accounts, and inherited IRA accounts for beneficiaries. We also offer products that may reduce your tax burden.
Using a variety of methods to plan retirement for pre- and current retirees, we recommend appropriate savings vehicles and tax strategies that are geared toward enjoying a comfortable retirement. We construct a distribution plan that addresses major risk areas, like outliving your money, major health care costs, inflation, stock market decline, and low interest rates.
We will assess the need for protection in the event of death, injury, poor health, and loss of income or property. Our primary concern is protecting you and your loved ones from financial tragedy in the event of a medical emergency, lawsuit or market event.
We are a provider of WealthGuard™, an incredibly simple, yet powerful early-warning system that monitors all of your investment accounts, daily, so you can invest with the confidence that there’s a plan in place to help protect your investments in all market conditions.
