Guiding you along the path Ahead of retirement
Once you’re well established in your career, the opportunities before you begin to come into clearer focus. This time in your life is not without challenges, however. Our team can help you navigate the path to your goals through intentional conversations about how to provide for your family, preparing for the unexpected, taking things like inflation into account in your financial plan and more.
Whether planning to build a home by the lake or help your daughter launch a business, you need a well-conceived plan in order to succeed. Pursuing financial independence is no different. Whether you’re looking to grow your money over time, generate income in retirement or preserve wealth for future generations, confidence in your financial plan comes with knowing your assets are invested well. As your knowledgeable partner, we provide wide-ranging, comprehensive financial planning to chart a detailed course for pursuing a bright and secure future.
As your trusted partner, we help you pursue your goals by constructing, managing and monitoring a broadly diversified portfolio that is fully customized to suit your needs. Through clear communication, we help you understand what you own and why, placing your best interests above all else.
Using a wealth of resources, we gain insight into the risk and return characteristics of your investment options. The portfolio strategies we pursue are modeled on those used by elite institutions to help us select a mix of asset classes that closely matches your individual preferences and appetite for risk. This approach weighs several factors – your goals, time horizon and tax implications – to create a stronger portfolio tailored to you.
As you approach the end of your career, you may have questions about what comes next. Together, we uncover the answers, identify and address any concerns you may have, and update your estate plan to reflect your current wishes. We start by identifying your short- and long-term goals. When do you want to retire? Where do you want to live? How will you spend your days? Then, we estimate income and expenses for the life you’re envisioning, taking into account the unexpected and other obligations so they won’t catch you unprepared.
If you need to play catchup, we examine the best way to do so by making larger contributions to your retirement accounts or possibly cutting back in other areas. We also discuss your Social Security and Medicare options with you, so you’ll be ready as soon as you’re eligible.
One of the most important functions we serve is helping to protect all you have worked to build. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help. As your experienced guide, we assess where your risk lies and determine your level of comfort with it, exploring what actions and plans to put in place to provide the level of protection you need and deserve.
Then, we tailor your financial plan to prepare for the unexpected, which could include preserving your estate with long-term care insurance, building a protective cushion with life insurance, and combining protection and tax-advantaged growth opportunities with annuities. Working together, our team helps you protect your overall financial plan, your way of life and your ability to reach your goals even when the unexpected happens.
