Big Milestones/Big Plans
Many of you are familiar with the GPM (Goal Planning & Monitoring) software we use when going through our financial planning process. There are many things we love about the program—the “predictability meter” showing the likelihood of achieving our goals before running out of money, the ability to look “under the hood” to see what your income will look like/where it comes from in the future, and the overall comprehensiveness of the program. In addition, being able to add in things like healthcare before Medicare, recurring automobile purchases, college education funding, weddings, travel and any other needs or wishes makes this a truly wonderful planning tool. We measure our results not only on investment performance, but how likely we are to achieve your goals - which is ultimately, what matters most.
Linked below is an article from Raymond James Worthwhile magazine titled, “Big Milestones/Big Plans.” It has many good planning tips for a lot of life’s milestones—from first jobs to job transitions, weddings, children, home purchase, surprises, windfalls and retirement to sandwich generation issues and last goodbyes. We think you will enjoy it.
As we enter November, we are very thankful for our client relationships. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence and will continue striving to give you a high degree of predictability of achieving your goals!
