You will have the satisfaction that comes from knowing that you have a plan that will help you to achieve your objectives and goals because you are working with someone you can trust. Your Financial Planner will provide you with clear answers to your questions and will work with your attorney, accountant and other advisors to help you bring your plan to fruition.

Customized  Strategies That Meet Your Needs

As a client, you will benefit from a collaborative, one-on-one relationship with your Financial Planner, who will work with you to identify and prioritize your financial goals and offer guidance and strategies specific to your individual needs.  Additionally, you'll have access to a range of investment and protection products.  Your Financial Planner will empower you to make informed decisions about your finances, focusing on the six areas of financial planning, all of which can have an impact on a sound financial plan:

• Financial Position — A review of your financial position with a better understanding of where you are right now. This will help you determine if you're making the best choices when it comes to cash reserves and debt management and whether your income, expenses and savings are balanced and appropriate for meeting your goals.

• Risk Management — Your Financial Planner can analyze your situation and help find strategies designed to protect your income, assets and, if you're a business owner, your business, at every stage of your life and as circumstances change.

• Wealth Accumulation — Your Financial Planner can design a strategy to help you invest your assets in order to meet your financial goals by taking into consideration your personal situation and tolerance for risk.

• Tax Planning — When applied appropriately in conjunction with a financial plan, tax strategies can help manage the impact of taxes on investment returns and income. Your Financial Planner can provide guidance for ways to decrease or defer taxes.

• Retirement Planning — Obviously, the earlier you start saving, the more flexibility and freedom you'll have to choose the when, how and where of retirement. If you're a business owner, your Financial Planner can show you how to take advantage of retirement strategies to maximize your retirement savings while offering plans that can reward and retain top talent. And even if you've already retired, your Financial Planner can help review your retirement savings.

• Estate Planning —Estate planning can help you to pass your wealth to your family and charities while taking into account your tax situation. It can take into consideration the special concerns of young families with minor children, families who have members with special needs, business owners who need to address succession planning, or grandparents who'd like to help the grandchildren go to college.
