Expect More Out of Your Money

What’s Nonnegotiable Is What Makes Us Uniquely Different

There’s no heavy technical industry jargon, no pretense, no judging. Just a thoughtful dialogue to create our mutual understanding, so that your unique financial plan accomplishes the future you envision.

We use the latest, most advantageous platforms, tools, apps and other technology solutions. The value of algorithms, analysis, projecting, tracking and interactive real-time interface is unequivocal and serves to present the most optimal solutions.

But, what’s more important than the technology is what we do with it.

Your financial future requires focused “human” judgment and financial expertise.
We work within your risk tolerances and behavioral biases.

There are no boiler plates. No one size fits all.

Here are some of the topics we can cover

We have an amazing network of experts who can help with more specialized aspects of your financial life.
However, we will also work with your own selected professionals.
Because, what’s best for you is what’s best for all.

Cash Flow & Debt Management
We will conduct a review of your income and expenses. We will provide advice on prioritizing how best to appropriate surplus and reduce expenses as well as which debts to pay off first based on the interest rate of the debt and any income tax ramifications. We may also recommend an appropriate cash reserve for emergencies and other financial goals. All of your accounts (e.g., checking, savings, investments, all assets and liabilities) are placed on our app so you always have a snapshot at your fingertips.
College Savings
We will project the amount needed to achieve college or other postsecondary education funding goals. We will recommend savings strategies for your children or grandchildren, and if needed, determine eligibility for financial aid.
Employee Benefits Optimization
We will review and analyze whether you, as an employee, are taking the maximum advantage possible of your employee benefits. If you are a business owner, we will recommend various benefit programs that can be structured to meet both business and personal retirement goals.
Estate Planning
An analysis of your current estate plan includes review of a will, powers of attorney, trusts and other related documents. We look at ways to minimize or avoid future estate taxes by implementing appropriate estate planning strategies such as trusts. We will also explore philanthropy, donor advised funds, gifting appreciated stock, etc. We can recommend attorneys who specialize in estate planning and participate in meetings, as needed.
Business Planning
Your organization’s 401(k) plan is an extremely important piece of your overall employee benefits package. Whether your plan is big or small, our goal is to improve cost-effectiveness and overall participation. Changes in the 401(k) marketplace have brought about a greater need for plan oversight, monitoring and overall compliance for the employer. We will review your current plan and give a breakdown of how well it is meeting your and your employees’ needs.
Investment Analysis
Investment Analysis involves developing an asset allocation strategy to meet your financial goals and risk tolerance, providing information on investment vehicles and strategies, reviewing employee stock options, as well as assisting you in establishing your own investment account at a selected broker-dealer/custodian.
Retirement Planning
We review projections of your likelihood of achieving your financial goals and provide advice on appropriate distribution strategies to minimize the likelihood of running out of money or having to adversely alter spending during your retirement years
Risk Management
A risk management review includes an analysis of your exposure to major risks that could have a significant adverse impact on your financial picture, such as premature death, disability, property and casualty losses or the need for long-term care. We provide advice on ways to minimize such risks, weighing the costs and benefits of purchasing insurance as well as the potential cost of not purchasing insurance (“self-insuring”). We can collaborate with your insurance provider or can refer you to one, if needed.
Tax Planning Strategies
Tax implications of financial decisions are a significant factor in building wealth. Together with your CPA/EA or tax preparer, we can make recommendations on which type of account(s) or specific investments should be owned based in part on their tax efficiency. Unlike many financial planners, we offer tax planning on an ongoing basis to help you avoid costly mistakes as you build for your future.
