Financial Planning: Envisioning Your Future. Many people avoid dealing with the difficult, if not daunting task of creating a personal financial plan. Doing it properly requires focus and deliberation in addition to professional guidance. We take the pain out of the process. By focusing on your personal concerns, we allow you to envision your future while we create the plan to help you achieve your goals. Our clients have the confidence that comes with knowing they have planned prudently.

Prudent Money Management: Reducing Risk, Preserving Capital, Achieving Goals. We specialize in designing diversified, individualized portfolios. Our investment strategy focuses first on your "risk personality."  When choosing investment products, your personal risk tolerance is extremely important and has a tremendous impact on the structure of your portfolio. At our initial meetings, we see many portfolios invested in products with far greater risk than is warranted. Next, we focus on asset allocation. Asset allocation, determined by asset class selection and diversification, has been shown to be key to portfolio performance. While no diversification or asset strategy can assure a profit or guarantee against a loss, we assist our clients in selecting products that are best suited to their risk personality and enable their assets to grow while helping to reduce volatility.

Long-Term Care Planning: Protect Your Wealth, Family, and Lifestyle. As people live longer, the consequences of a long-term care crisis can be devastating to your family and assets, and may be the single greatest threat to your retirement portfolio. Through long-term care and life planning, we help our clients protect their retirement portfolio and lifestyle by creating a plan that will leave their retirement portfolio intact for its intended purpose and permit them to care for their loved ones without the threat of financial ruin. We will help you avoid the potential necessity of drawing from assets intended for education, retirement or bequest.

Estate Planning: Transferring Wealth, Avoiding Estate Taxes. Estate planning allows you to leave your loved ones and selected charitable institutions with a lasting financial legacy. Understanding first how you wish to distribute your assets, we work with estate planning attorneys to help you structure your assets during your lifetime to help ensure they are properly transferred and distributed to your heirs while minimizing estate and inheritance taxes.
