Services essentialto your financial life

Financial planning, investment management, retirement income planning and estate planning all play a vital role in your financial independence and well-being. Because of this, we focus our expertise on serving you in these areas – so you can continue enjoying the well-deserved lifestyle you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

Retirement planning
Because people are living longer today, the possibility of going 30 years without a paycheck takes careful retirement planning and disciplined investing. Once in retirement, preserving your wealth and maintaining your lifestyle are likely among your highest priorities. You aspire to stay in your home as long as you want and be able to leave behind the legacy you had envisioned. We can help you prepare for this most significant milestone in life.
Wealth management planning
Our team is well-versed in helping you manage the complexities that wealth can often bring. Our wealth management services include:
  • Wealth preservation and transfer strategies
  • Risk management
  • Liquidity management
  • Charitable giving

Intergenerational transfer
Whether it’s providing income for a spouse, educating children or grandchildren or leaving money to your favorite charity, proper estate planning can help ensure that your assets accumulated over your lifetime are preserved for the use you have intended. We can offer financial strategies designed to efficiently manage the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next, and mitigate related tax issues.

Business succession

If you’re a business owner it’s likely much of your net worth is tied up in your company. It’s also likely you may have not determined your exit strategy. If this is the case, don’t wait any longer. It will take time, thought and skill to put you into a position to reap the benefits of the time and effort you’ve put into your business.

Among the many decisions, you’ll need to determine the most appropriate structure for divesting your business. You could:

  • Sell it to a competitor,
  • Sell it to one or more key employees or
  • Keep it in the family.

You must also consider the form in which you’ll receive payment including:

  • Lump sum payments,
  • Periodic cash payments,
  • Combination of stock and cash, or
  • Satisfaction of knowing the business will stay in the family, being run by someone who is willing and able.

 

We can help you structure the solution that’s most appropriate for your situation as well as advise you on how to invest the proceeds.
