We encourage all clients to have a percentage of their financial assets invested in stocks. We believe diversification across different types of stocks and stock markets along with different asset classes remains the prudent way to achieve best outcomes.
We believe that frequent communication is essential to help achieve performance objectives and goals. To guide investment decisions we recommend allocations in a manner designed to provide diversification, reduce risk, and enhance tax efficiency.
Our team assists clients in areas that include, but are not limited to the following:
- Cash flow planning
- Tax preferenced withdrawal or ordering strategies (asset location planning)
- Wealth transfer strategies and family meetings with adult children (when appropriate)
- Beneficiary naming
- Social Security claiming strategies
- Education planning for children and grandchildren
Lastly we work closely with many of our clients' other financial professionals including their tax planners, CPAs, estate and trust lawyers.
