What your plan should do for you.
A good retirement plan should be based on your ability to take specific, planned-for distributions from your wealth in keeping with your goals. If your plan is to stop working at 68 and devote yourself full-time to other pursuits, you shouldn’t be hoping Wall Street is in a bull market when that day comes. With careful oversight, rigorous mathematical modeling, and management of taxes and other aspects of your assets, we create plans designed to deliver closely on the desired distributions. To help you achieve specific outcomes, we go well beyond model portfolios. Our approach takes into account known upcoming expenses, such as tuitions or a new home, as well as estimated future incomes and expenses.
Retiring on your schedule.
While markets historically make money for investors long term, there is no guarantee that a severe bear market won’t exist just before and just after you retire. That is why the five years before and after your projected retirement date have been termed “the fragile decade.” If your plan is based solely on investing, you may find yourself not being able to support the lifestyle you expected—or delaying your retirement beyond what you had desired. Our holistic approach helps to prevent that occurrence.
Helping you make smart decisions.
At any stage, we help you see the long-term effects of today’s major financial decisions. What will be the effect on your retirement contributions if you stretch to buy a larger home? Would it make more sense to build-out? How should you handle an unexpected inheritance? Can you afford a vacation home, or the cost of switching careers? No matter what you’re contemplating, we’ll help you gauge its impact on your overall security. In this way, your plan is yours alone, designed to help you achieve what you need and want—both today and in the future—based on the known realities of your situation.
