Your financial needs change over time, from accumulating wealth to planning for retirement and making your money last as long as possible through retirement. We offer a wide range of services designed to cover every aspect of your financial needs during every stage of your life. You can count on us for many financial-related events and eventualities you will encounter.
Asset allocation is a long-term strategy designed to help investors achieve their financial goals without assuming undue risk. By allocating your assets to a diverse variety of sectors and investments, we attempt to increase the likelihood of generating a more consistent, positive return over the long term. Depending on your risk tolerance, the economic environment and your specific objectives matched to the goals you wish to achieve, your portfolio may include domestic and global stocks, fixed income, real estate and alternative investments.
Asset allocation does not ensure a profit nor protect against loss.
Whether it’s providing income for a spouse, educating children or grandchildren or leaving money to your favorite charity, proper estate planning can help ensure that your assets accumulated over your lifetime are preserved for the use you have intended.
A well-designed estate plan can effectively help mitigate your family’s tax burden. We can offer financial strategies designed to efficiently manage the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next and related tax issues.
By coordinating our efforts with your tax and legal professionals and working closely with you and your family, we will strive to help you establish a financial tradition that can be passed on for generations.
There is much more to your life than simple transactions and returns. Similarly, there’s more to financial planning than just a portfolio and a retirement strategy. You have many things to plan for now, soon and well into the future, so we look at financial planning through a wide lens, and we develop strategies designed to keep you comfortable in the present while helping you reach your near- and long-term goals.
*Margin or a securities based line of credit may not be suitable for all clients. The proceeds from a securities based line of credit cannot be used to purchase or carry margin securities. Borrowing on securities based lending products and using securities as collateral may involve a high degree of risk. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. If the market turns against the client, he or she may be required to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account(s) or pay down the loan. The securities in the pledged account(s) may be sold to meet the margin call, and the firm can sell the client’s securities without contacting them. The interest rates charged for a securities based line of credit are determined by the market value of pledged assets and Capital Access. The interest rates charged for margin are determined by the amount borrowed. For additional information on margin, visit http://sec.gov/investor/pubs/margin.htm.

In general, people are living longer today. The possibility of going 30 years without a paycheck takes careful planning and disciplined investing. We can help you with every phase of planning for your retirement. During your working years, we’ll develop and monitor a wealth accumulation plan based on your specific goals and objectives. As you approach retirement, we’ll assist you with critical decisions regarding retirement plan options, Social Security, Medicare and tax planning. In addition, transitioning your portfolio allocation from accumulation to distribution as you phase into retirement is a critical process that is often overlooked. Once you are retired, we will determine tax-efficient income and wealth transfer strategies designed to help you in retirement.
If your goals include providing for the future of a child or grandchild, we can help you investigate your many options and develop an education funding strategy. We can help you provide for this opportunity with investment vehicles such as education savings accounts, 529 college savings accounts and specialized trust vehicles.
As with other investments, there are generally fees and expenses associated with participation in a 529 plan. There is also a risk that these plans may lose money or not perform well enough to cover college costs as anticipated. Most states offer their own 529 programs, which may provide advantages and benefits exclusively for their residents. The tax implications can vary significantly from state to state.
Like other significant events, marriage or divorce requires careful planning in order to successfully navigate this stage in life.
