Personal Financial Planning
Our responsibility is to be your professional advisor and advocate. We understand that every client's financial situation is unique. We approach financial management by developing a personalized comprehensive financial plan. This approach is important in allowing the plan to be maintained through the inevitable bumps life will bring. We are conservative in our investment and planning approach.
We will conduct a thorough review of your assets and any outstanding debts to identify financial strengths and weaknesses. It is our firm belief that the easiest path to wealth creation and financial independence is to become debt-free and stay that way.
We will review situations that could lead to unforeseen liability and suggest methods of reducing or transferring risk.
Projecting future income levels, asset values, and spending needs could allow for a more interactive and meaningful approach to identify sources of income in retirement.
Many of our clients have unique goals they are trying to achieve, such as paying for a college education, retiring early, or leaving a charitable legacy. We will discuss these goals and propose ways to help reach the intended target.
With tax policy continuously changing, we advise our clients on various strategies to most efficiently use their assets to produce income, pass wealth to family members, effectively support charity, and look ahead at potential tax issues that can arise with a growing estate.
We assess the need for updating wills, revising trusts, or naming a power of attorney over financial and/or health care matters. In addition, we will discuss how you wish to leave assets to family or charity at death.
