We collect information from you, about your lifestyle, assets, and expenses and conduct a comprehensive evaluation in order to determine and help you plan for your future financial needs.
Financial risk management
Risk management is one of our main responsibilities as your financial advisor. In that role, we identify, analyze, and manage the risks associated with your investments.
Regardless of your age, we will work with you to develop a full financial analysis and retirement plan that will help you prepare for a satisfying retirement.
ESG (environment, social, governance) allocations allow you to align your investments with your values. Each asset in the portfolio is screened to assess its positive impact on the environment and society and the choices they’ve made in their governance.
A mutual fund is a type of investment vehicle. You can think of it as a container for other investments, which could include stocks, bonds, and other assets.
If you’re interested in investing in specific companies using traditional stocks and/or bonds, we can help you do that. We’ll set up a brokerage account for you, where we can facilitate purchases and sales for you.
Annuities are tax-deferred investment that are most often used as a retirement account. You can make a lump sum deposit to open the account or pay over time. The annuity can provide a steady income stream during retirement.
An individual retirement account, or IRA, is a retirement savings account. IRAs come in a number of different types, the two most common being Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs.
A trust account is opened by one person for the benefit of another person and managed by a trustee based on pre-determined terms. For example, a parent may create a trust account for their child and set a time when the child can begin to access the money and how much they can access at a given time.
Long-term care insurance
As people age and face declining health, they may require long-term medical and social services to support their needs. Insurance helps cover the expenses associated with this long-term care.
College savings plans are designed specifically for saving money that will be used toward the costs of higher education. These plans allow you to save money while enjoying tax and financial aid benefits.
- – ESG investing has certain risks based on the fact that the criteria excludes securities of certain issuers for non-financial reasons and, therefore, investors may forgo some market opportunities and the universe of investments available will be smaller.
- – Mutual Funds and Variable Annuities are sold by prospectus only. Contact a financial advisor to obtain a prospectus. Read it carefully before investing.
