Planning for Clients’ Needs Now, in the Near Future, and in the Long-Term

We approach our clients plans through the lens of the three core aspects of a client’s financial life: The present, the near-term future, and the long-term.

1. Your Most Immediate Needs

Assets in the liquidity strategy align with your current financial needs in order to provide a steady income stream for the next few years. For example, this may include Social Security, a pension, cash, designed to match your planned expenditures.

2. Your Needs in the Future

Your future needs include all of the assets the family will utilize in their lifetimes, which provides a clear picture of what future spending objectives will cost. It is also managed appropriately for that task – a portfolio designed to your unique needs and goals. This can include insurance, homes, and similar assets. 

3. Your Needs in the Long-Term

This category includes what a family can do to improve the lives of others – either now or in the future. It includes assets that are in excess of what the family members need to meet their own lifetime objectives, and generally is the focus of estate planning strategies.
