Families & Individuals

We will be straightforward and honest about your financial situation and explain the benefits and drawbacks involved with the options we propose. We will give you our recommendations, but the final decision is always yours.

Some of our clients have had relationships with other financial professionals and wish to know about how our philosophies compare. Others have never worked with a Financial Advisor and aren't even sure which questions to ask. Our meetings are conversational and involve a lot of back and forth discussion. We want you to be comfortable with all aspects of our relationship.

  • Estate planning strategies - We work with estate-planning attorneys and provide access to trust specialists. We help review investment related details of your wills and trusts, preserve your estate for your intended heirs and establish beneficiary designations to address potential estate taxes and probate costs. We coordinate with your tax and legal advisors, and can refer you to other professionals if needed.
  • Education funding - One of the more rewarding gifts one can give is the gift of education. After learning about your priorities, we will recommend investment and accumulation strategies to help you save towards your children or grandchildren's education.
