Actively Listen to your goals, Methodically Measure your risk tolerance and objectives, and Implement & Monitor your plan.
I do NOT work alone. The recipe for success lies in preparation and calling on the appropriate expertise. If you don’t already have a Certified Public Accountant and or Estate Attorney I will help you find one with whom you are comfortable. Your CPA, Estate Attorney and I will work as a team. Together we will set you up to be successful.
Investment Process: A premeditated and carefully calculated plan provides a much greater opportunity to accomplish goals than avoidance due to unknowns.
Time is on my side! I will be here for your children and grandchildren. I can provide the financial continuity your family needs and deserves.
There are certain life events that require expertise to successfully navigate. While building my practice there are four events in which I deliver excellent value to help my clients navigate complex financial transitions.
Single Decision Maker: widows, widowers, and or divorcees have a unique set of challenges not exclusive to Estate transition and or Qualified Domestic Relation Orders.
Transitioning Wealth: beneficiaries of funds from a relative or close friend must prepare for tax efficient and sustainable investment practices for long term success.
Retired or Nearly: Baby Boomers and Gen X benefit greatly and have a better chance of living the life they want in retirement with a plan for tax efficient income generation and investment strategies.
High Earner Not Rich Yet (HENRY): you make a good living but all of your assets are in your work retirement plan. You can benefit from my consulting service. In this service I will review employer sponsored retirement plan investment strategies, building a customized financial plan, and help answer financial questions.
