The areas of financial planning that we will focus on throughout our relationship will grow and adapt with you. Some frequent questions we will address vary with your age, including:
Am I saving enough for retirement?
Do I have adequate life and disability insurance?
How much home can I afford?
Am I saving enough for my child's education?
When can I retire?
When should I take Social Security?
Is there something I should be doing to lower my taxes?
Are my investments structured to support my income needs in retirement?
Does my estate planning reflect the legacy I want to leave?
Is there a more tax efficient way to gift to family members and charity?
We believe in caring for the whole person so that our solutions align with your goals and core values. The first question we ask isn't about your portfolio, it's about you.
We'll be in your corner through all of life's transitions. We're the advisors who will help walk you through executorship when a loved one passes. And the ones who show up to your retirement celebrations (only when we're invited, of course)!
We're employed by you. This approach plus our company values means we act in your best interest.
We start by ensuring your financial footing is strong, with adequate emergency savings, debt management, and insurance.
Portfolio decisions are made through the lens of your financial plan. We will never make portfolio suggestions without first discussing your goals.
We build you a portfolio based on your unique long-term goals, tax situation, and risk tolerance.
We use a broad approach to asset allocation, diversifying across stocks, bonds, and alternative assets such as private equity and hedge funds.
We develop long-term strategic allocations based on global investment themes. We make shorter-term tactical changes to the portfolio as necessary.
We focus on finding investments with strong track records and below-average expenses.
