To develop a retirement plan for your future, it’s important for your retirement professional to see a complete, 360 degree view of your retirement picture, including how your retirement assets are integrated and work with one another. If necessary, we can refer you to tax professionals or attorneys in our network to advise you on specific aspects of your retirement plan.

Retirement income plans are not just for the wealthy. As you near retirement, the traditional strategy has been to move growth-seeking products to more conservative fixed-income products. This may have worked fine back when retirement was only expected to last five to ten years.
These days, however, people are living longer. It’s not unusual for someone retiring at age 65 to live to age 90 or longer. You should consider that you may need to plan for your nest egg to potentially last 25 to 30 years.
In recent years, we've seen that aggressive and conservative products, both domestic and global, can move in tandem with one another. In other words, we have experienced market scenarios in which there is very little safety anywhere – even for diversified portfolios.
Twenty-first century asset preservation calls for more than just strategic asset allocation. Product allocation – buying instruments that can preserve your portfolio from negative returns early in retirement – is generally considered a more effective means of protecting assets.
Diversifying your retirement assets among a variety of vehicles – both insurance and investment oriented, depending on what is appropriate for your situation – may offer you the best chance of meeting your retirement income goals throughout your lifespan.
Neither Asset Allocation nor Diversification guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. They are methods used to help manage investment risk.
When you change jobs or retire, there are four things you can do with the money in your employer-sponsored retirement plan:
Rolling over from one qualified plan to another qualified plan allows your money to continue growing tax-deferred until you receive a distribution in retirement. We can help you determine if a rollover is the right move for you, and we can help find the best vehicle to help conserve and grow your rollover assets.
IRA accounts have become one of the largest types of assets inherited by beneficiaries. If you don’t anticipate needing your IRA money in retirement, you may wish to consider a legacy planning strategy to help manage taxes and increase the payout your beneficiaries will inherit upon your death.
A properly structured IRA may provide your beneficiary(ies) a regular stream of income while leaving the balance of IRA assets invested for tax-deferred growth. The result may yield substantially more money paid out over the course of your beneficiary’s lifetime. We can help you evaluate your retirement scenario to determine if IRA legacy planning may be the best means for ensuring a long-lasting inheritance for your heirs.
We cut through the clutter and will explain the basics about Medicare and how it works.

Life insurance isn’t for those who have died – it’s for those who are left behind. When shopping for life insurance, consider the needs such as replacing income so your family can maintain its standard of living, as well as paying for your funeral and estate costs. As a rule of thumb, you should seek coverage between five and seven times your gross annual income. As far as the various types of policies go, they can generally be placed into one of two categories: Term and Permanent.
Term insurance generally provides coverage for a specified period of time and pays out a specified amount of coverage to your beneficiary only if you die within that time period. You pay the same amount of premium from the first day of the policy until the term ends. Permanent insurance, on the other hand, does not need to be renewed. A permanent insurance policy will stay permanently in effect for the rest of your life so long as premiums continue to be paid.
In the US, we have entered an environment of rising taxes. That’s why it’s important now, more than ever before, to incorporate tax planning into your portfolio and all of your retirement decisions.
Investing in a tax-deferred vehicle means your money will compound interest for years, unfettered by income taxes, allowing it to earn interest at a faster rate. While very few investments avoid taxes altogether, many allow you to defer paying them until retirement – when you may be in a lower tax bracket.
We also provide full tax return preparation and filing for our clients
Estate planning is simply determining (while you’re still alive) where your assets should go after you die. Without a properly structured estate plan, your wishes may not be fulfilled, and your loved ones could be hurt both emotionally and financially.
While the concept is simple, the vehicles, planning and implementation process can be rather complex. Because of the constantly changing estate tax laws and emerging vehicles to help you protect and transfer your assets effectively, it’s important to work with experienced estate planning professionals who stay current in this field and advise clients on a day-to-day basis.
Estate planning includes Wills, Trusts, charitable giving, and probate protection.
