Financial Planning


Comprehensive financial planning is a holistic, objective process, focused around six areas of your financial life, which are:

Financial Position — A review of your financial position with a better understanding of where you are right now. This will help you determine if you're making the best choices when it comes to cash reserves and debt management and whether your income, expenses and savings are balanced and appropriate for meeting your goals.

Risk Management — Your Financial Planner can analyze your situation and help find ways to protect your income, assets and, if you're a business owner, your business, at every stage of your life and as circumstances change.

Wealth Accumulation — Your Financial Planner can design a strategy to help you invest your assets in order to meet your financial goals by taking into consideration your personal situation and tolerance for risk.

Tax Planning — When applied appropriately in conjunction with a financial plan, tax strategies can help reduce the impact of taxes on investment returns and income. Your Financial Planner can provide guidance for ways to decrease, eliminate or defer taxes.

Retirement Planning — Obviously, the earlier you start saving, the more flexibility and freedom you'll have to choose the when, how and where of retirement. If you're a business owner, your Financial Planner can show you how to take advantage of retirement strategies to maximize your retirement savings while offering plans that can reward and retain top talent. And even if you've already retired, your Financial Planner can help to ensure that your savings continue to work for you.

Estate Planning — Proper estate planning can help you to pass on more of your wealth to your family and charities than to taxes. It can take into consideration the special concerns of young families with minor children, families who have members with special needs, business owners who need to address succession planning or grandparents who'd like to help the grandchildren go to college.

Through a collaborative, one-on-one relationship and a concise process, we will help you realize the full potential of your financial future by identifying and prioritizing your short- and long-term goals. This is a critical first step in helping you engineer a targeted plan that employs financial strategies customized to meet your needs.

It begins by taking a personal, in-depth look to understand your specific financial goals and help you define a clear plan for how to achieve them.

  • Achieve a balance between your current lifestyle and future expectations
  • Minimize tax impact on your portfolio
