Here's a radical idea: start thinking about retirement when you are farthest from it.
Obviously, the sooner you start saving for your future, the better. Through the magic of compounding, even small contributions, made in regular increments over a long term, can have substantial impact. But say you only have a handful of years before you retire... it's still not too late to start planning. In this critical pre-retirement period, it is more important than ever to consult with a financial professional.
When it comes to your retirement, your plan is key to helping achieve your goals.
Before we begin to look at investments and other products and service, we work with you to define your personal and financial needs and priorities.
We will determine your time frame for financial results, and listen carefully to better understand your values, expectations and feelings about financial risk.
A solid retirement plan not only includes metrics for how much you will need to save, how, and by when. It also stipulates how you will draw upon those funds in a way that's strategic and takes into account the prevailing tax environment.
We address eight key areas of your personal finances:
- Budgeting, cash flow and net worth
- Insurance needs analysis
- Investment analysis
- Education funding analysis
- Tax efficient strategies
- Retirement needs analysis
- Estate planning strategies
- Charitable giving strategies
