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, our team focuses its expertise on serving you in these areas – so you can continue enjoying the well-deserved lifestyle you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Our objectives are to help preserve your wealth, achieve a reasonable rate of return, and counter the erosive effects of inflation and taxes. We know that a proper asset allocation among cash, equity, fixed-income securities and alternative investments can be an effective way to pursue investment goals. We believe the formula for investment management should include the key components of skilled investment research, long-term planning and a well-managed professional relationship.
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 help efficiently manage the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next, and mitigate related tax issues.
We believe a comprehensive financial plan must consider and prepare for the unexpected – such as accidents, illnesses and disability. Our team helps you think ahead and consider different scenarios, then prepare contingency plans to address them. We understand that while risk cannot be eliminated, it can and should be mitigated. Our risk management services include life insurance, long-term care coverage and annuities.
Through Raymond James Trust, N.A., we offer a full array of trust structures, including charitable-giving tools that may also feature tax advantages. Whether your goal is to minimize estate taxes, help ensure you have the funds you need down the road, provide for a loved one or spell out exactly how you want your wishes to be carried out, we can help.
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.
