PERSONAL CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
We operate as your personal chief financial officer (CFO), your “go-to” person for any financial need you might have. We will guide you and your family to the right decisions not only for your investments, but also on your tax mitigation opportunities, estate and trust planning, family governance, asset protection, long-term care planning, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security planning, and your philanthropic goals. We believe strongly that serving as your personal CFO will take the burden off your shoulders of you managing every piece of your financial life, thus freeing you to live your best life during your retirement years.
Provide a detail plan to assist you in understanding income sources, if you have enough money saved and probability of being able to retire on your preferred timeline.
When it comes to investment planning, our process is logical and deliberate. It was chosen to fit with our clients’ objectives: to create and maintain peace of mind regarding their investments.
We understand that rates of returns used in financial planning are only forecasts. Nobody can tell you with certainty if the returns will be achieved or not over the lifetime of the plan.
Furthermore, we do not believe anyone can consistently time the markets and/or predict the direction of interest rates and the economy, which are unknowns.
Our approach is to control what we can control. Through the use of sophisticated technology and our disciplined 50-year research analysis using our RISK-BALANCED ALLOCATION approach, we work with our clients to arrive at the most appropriate solution for their financial needs and balanced by their risk tolerances. There are two main steps to our process:
- First, we work to understand if our clients can achieve their financial goals using forecasted returns of highly conservative portfolios constructed around a well-documented, disciplined investment strategy.
- Second, we invest using this well-documented, disciplined approach, which has shown over time to provide more than double the conservative returns used in the first step.
This highly DISCIPLINED approach assists in providing you with a broader perspective and better understanding of the ramifications of your investment decision-making, thus offering you what we believe to be the highest probability of achieving your financial goals over your lifetime.
Use strategies to maximize the tax efficiency of current assets and cash flow, while achieving both growth and preservation goals.
With our strategic partners, we summarize your existing estate planning structure and identify gaps that can expose your family to unnecessary taxes.
Analyze your financial exposures and risks if you were to get sued, suddenly passed or had a long-term illness.
Assist in using strategies to maximize the effectiveness of your charitable and philanthropic intent.
As part of our family governance philosophy, we strive to ensure that your heirs are properly cared for when you pass on. We will work to see that your assets are passed on according to your wishes and that your children and grandchildren are properly educated about money. That way, when the time comes to carry on your legacy, they will be fully prepared.
Through our strategic partners with the world’s largest financial institutions, we can manage all banking needs to assist you in managing cash flow and liquidity requirements.
