Planning provides a detailed road map on how to help achieve financial goals. The plan may focus on specific objectives such as retirement income, education planning, leaving a legacy, and charitable giving. Or, the road map may be as complex as a full wealth plan, executive compensation analysis, retirement plan consulting and estate planning strategy.
Investments are the primary tool used to help clients achieve their financial goals. The team works with clients to build and manage a customized portfolio designed to focus on their specific needs and concerns. This includes income and growth needs, tax efficiency, estate planning strategies and sustainability. The team utilizes equities/stocks, fixed-income/bonds, CDs, mutual funds, closed-end funds (CEFs) exchange-traded funds (ETFs), money market funds, options, unit investment trusts (UITs) and alternative investments to build customized portfolios.
