Go more in-depth in matters important when you’re nearing or in retirement.
One of the greatest rewards of wealth is being able to share it with others. You’ve taken care of your own needs and wants, but it takes prudence and planning to make sure your loved ones and favorite charities last for generations. Having an estate plan to control the distribution of your assets benefits you, your family and the causes you care about and can help you mitigate potential pitfalls in the future.
We have the resources to customize a plan that not only protects your assets but also helps you share your wealth with the people and charities you care about most.
We take a tax-sensitive approach to financial planning and work with you and your other professional advisors – accountants, tax attorneys – to help minimize the impact of taxes. By developing and implementing strategies to lessen or shift current and future tax liabilities, we can help improve your prospects for meeting your financial objectives.
In addition to impacting your life today, prudent tax planning can play a large role in the amount of wealth you might be able to someday transfer to your heirs.
Please note: changes in tax laws or regulations may occur at any time and as financial advisors of Raymond James, we do not render advice on tax or legal matters. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.
Whatever your goals are, it’s how you invest your assets that largely determines how soon or if you’ll reach them. Whether you’re looking to grow your money over time, generate income in retirement or preserve your wealth for future generations, confidence in your financial plan comes with knowing your assets are invested well.
We can help you narrow the overwhelming number of investment opportunities to just the right ones for you, your family and your goals.
Financial planning is just as much about where you are today as it is about where you want to be tomorrow. That’s why we offer you a complete suite of cash management tools and borrowing options that give you the power to manage your day-to-day finances without disrupting your long-term financial plan.

It’s like having your bank and your investment firm in one place. In fact, that’s exactly what it is.
You’re a leader, a visionary, an innovator who built a business into a success. Your business is a huge part of your life and your net worth, so you know, too, that there’s rarely a clear-cut line between your personal finances and your business’s balance sheet.
We understand business planning is not that different from personal financial planning – it is the daily management and balance of investments and risk, and planning for the future. It is about setting goals, employing the right strategies and tools to achieve them, and ultimately realizing the value that you’ve created.
You’ve worked hard to build your business. Let us help you along the way.
As much as we don’t want it to be, risk is a part of life. And one of the most important facets of financial planning is protecting all that you have worked so hard to build. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help manage risk when it comes to your financial plan. It just takes the right approach, a little discipline, and a lot of diligence to assess the risks that could derail your life goals, and be prepared for them.
Together, we can assess where your risk lies and determine your level of comfort with it. We will explore what actions and plans to put in place to provide the level of protection you need and can count on. It’s about establishing a safety net by regularly reviewing – and adjusting – your estate plan and insurance policies to make sure they meet your needs at every stage of your life.
We can help you protect your overall financial plan, your way of life and your ability to generate income even when the unexpected happens.
There are prudent safeguards that can be implemented to help protect assets from the erosive effects of taxes and other liabilities, and to help ensure assets pass according to your estate plan. One important matter is the proper titling of an asset. This determines your property rights during your lifetime and how the asset will transfer at death: according to your Will, by beneficiary designation or agreement, or according to state law. If asset titling is not coordinated with your estate plan, your estate plan may not be realized.
If one spouse works in an occupation or business that exposes him or her to greater potential liability, it may be a good idea to divide assets between spouses so that one spouse keeps only the income and assets from his or her job, while the other spouse takes sole ownership of valuable assets. Creditors can generally reach only those assets in the name of the spouse with the liability. These are examples of the asset protection strategies we can explore with you to identify the ones that make the most sense for you.
The First Transcontinental Railroad was 1,907 miles long and connected the Eastern U.S. with the Pacific coast of the United States for the first time. Construction took place between 1863 and 1869, and was authorized by the Pacific Railroad Acts of 1862 and 1864. These dates are not coincidental. Since the southern Democrats who opposed the idea of a transcontinental railroad were absent from Congress due to the Civil War, the Republicans used the opportunity to vote for construction without them.
