Benefits of a ConsultationBenefits of a Financial Consultation

A consultation allows us to learn more about your life aspirations and your unique circumstances so that we may assist you. Our goal is to help you efficiently create, grow and preserve your wealth by providing independent, objective advice and professional investment and financial management.

You may benefit from a complimentary, no-obligation consultation with one of the advisors if you want to:

  • Discuss strategies that seek to make your money last throughout retirement with a tax-efficient distribution strategy
  • Save for your child's or grandchild's college education
  • Obtain a second opinion on asset allocation or portfolio diversification
  • Make the most of your asset-building years
  • Have investments with numerous brokers and want to consolidate assets in one place
  • Have money in a 401(k)/TSP from a previous employer
  • Want to establish an estate plan and protect your family’s financial future for generations to come
  • Have discretionary cash and want to get started with a financial and investment plan
  • Learn about investment options for a maturing CD
  • Develop a strategy to maintain a preferred standard of living in retirement
  • Re-examine investments due to a recent life-changing event -- suddenly single, merging households, recently married, just graduated, new baby, etc.

Our ApproachOur Approach

We take a thoughtful, comprehensive and personalized approach to financial planning and portfolio management for our clients.
