We design a custom roadmap that works for you, whether you need comprehensive advisement encompassing all six aspects of wealth management, or only a select few.
With an emphasis on “planning,” we guide you through the process by:
- Establishing a relationship built on trust
- Gathering data and determining goals and expectations
- Analyzing and evaluating your financial status
- Developing and presenting recommendations to you
- Implementing the financial planning recommendations
- Monitoring the recommendations
Personal financial planning offers a long-term strategy for your financial future, taking into consideration every aspect of your financial situation and how each affects your ability to achieve your goals and objectives.
Estate Planning & Asset Protection
To ensure you and your family’s financial goals are met when you die, it’s important to address estate planning and asset protection now. Here’s what you need:
- A will
- Assignment of power of attorney
- A living will or health care proxy
- A trust (in many cases).
Trusts are important because they can reduce estate taxes and protect your family from a very public probate process.
Estate planning can be complicated. That’s why it’s important to work with professionals who are well versed on the laws of your particular state. We work with trusted partners who specialize in estate planning and asset protection to make sure your family is protected no matter what the circumstances.
Insurance & Risk Management
Are you concerned about death protection, income replacement, or issues related to long-term care? We address these issues with you to make sure your estate is protected from various life events. We can help you with insurance and risk management including:
- Life Insurance
- Long term care insurance
We work with partners to make sure you have the right coverage for your personal situation at the right price.
