Your financial needs change over time, from accumulating wealth to planning for retirement to making your money last as long as possible through retirement. We offer services to cover every aspect of your financial needs during every significant stage of your life. You can count on us for practically every financial-related need you encounter.
Because people are living longer today, the possibility of going 30 years without a paycheck takes careful planning and disciplined investing. We can help you with every phase of planning for your retirement. During your working years, the accumulation phase, we'll develop and monitor a wealth accumulation plan based on your specific goals and objectives. As you approach retirement, the pre-retirement phase, we'll assist you with critical decisions regarding retirement plan options, Social Security and tax planning. Then once you are retired, we will determine tax-efficient income and wealth transfer strategies designed to help you in retirement.
We will review your current IRA and Roth IRA's. Each time you switch employers, you may have created a new retirement account. IRA rollovers give you an easy way to consolidate these accounts.
Asset allocation is a long-term strategy designed to help investors achieve their financial goals without assuming undue risk. By allocating your assets to a diverse variety of sectors and investments, we attempt to increase the likelihood of generating a more consistent, positive return over the long term.
Asset allocation does not ensure a profit nor protect against loss.
Raymond James offers full-service asset management for clients who prefer to utilize the skills and expertise of professional money managers. A comprehensive process helps match your unique goals and risk tolerance with an asset allocation model that's right for you – from capital protection to asset growth designed to meet your long-term goals.

Whether it's providing income for a spouse, educating children or grandchildren or leaving money to your favorite charity, estate planning can help ensure that your assets are designated for the use you have intended. We offer strategies designed to efficiently manage the transfer of wealth and mitigate tax issues.
In life, we pass through several phases, each with different financial requirements. For example, the financial needs of a young married couple are not the same as those of a retired couple. That is why continuous, long-term planning is essential. Typically, there are three basic financial steps most people take in life. They include:
In addition to the complexities and changing priorities that occur over a lifetime, a financial plan also is affected by fluctuating economic conditions, taxes and inheritance laws. We have the expertise to thoughtfully design a plan with your circumstances in mind, helping you develop a long-term financial strategy for your individual needs.

Whether you are a new investor or an experienced one, investing in mutual funds may be an easy way to diversify your holdings. A growing segment of the investment market, mutual funds are professionally managed portfolios whose shares are sold to the public in much the same way that stocks are. LEARN MORE
Stock signifies ownership in a corporation. By purchasing stock, you are actually paying for a small percentage of everything the company owns. Many companies issue stock, also known as equity, to raise money for expansion, equipment upgrades or other initiatives. Generally, investors purchase stock to realize capital gains.
