Retirement income planning is a special and complex aspect of wealth management. It’s very personal, yet requires scientific rigor, access to specialized research and deep analytical skills—a combination rarely found in a single firm.
Unlike retirement strategies that focus only on maximizing return, our income distribution approach is based on creating realistic scenarios of what you’d like to be withdrawing from your assets once you stop working. We call it “pensionizing your portfolio.”
As circumstances change for you—for better or worse at any stage—we adjust both the distribution scenarios and the actions you’re taking today to achieve them, all to help you enjoy the things you most want out of life.
We are not in the prediction business.
We don’t just invest funds and rely on the markets, we take into account every aspect of your financial situation, including what you’re earning today and what you expect to earn tomorrow. Our recommendations recognize that while markets will do what they do best—increase investments over the long term—we also address the fact that your retirement will fall within a specific and possibly volatile snapshot of that long-term performance. By modeling different life stage events and distribution scenarios, we establish a base that is much more reliable at minimizing risk than multiple asset class diversification alone.
A true personalized approach to retirement planning must account for all the financial variables you face. That’s why tax, insurance and estate planning recommendations—in addition to investment advice—are all part of our services.
