All Wealth Management relationships start with a Financial and Investment Plan that usually takes one or two meetings to deliver, depending on the complexity of the client's situation.
Financial Goal Plan
Identifies, and determines the best use of cash flow to accomplish your goals including planning for retirement. This plan is focused on numbers, including optimizing social security and identifying an ideal investment allocation.
Determines the best investment mix of index funds based on your ability to withstand different levels of market fluctuation. Can compare current and suggested investment return, risk (standard deviation), and expenses.
Additional analysis and reviews include:
Projects tax scenarios to maximize the timing of taking pensions, social security, and other income streams. Maximizes deductions to increase cash flow. Can identify inefficient investment strategies and capital gains issues.
Analyzes insurance needs for risk exposures. Changes implemented by your agent.
Review of account titles, beneficiary information, and estate documents to expose any needed updates. Changes are implemented by your estate planning attorney.
Cash Management Plan
Identifies income, tax, and expenses to bring focus and awareness to your cash flow. May include the use of budget software like Mint.com.
As circumstances permit, Financial Planning may be offered as a limited engagement for a specific fee by referral only.
