Designing Your Financial Future
Fee-Only Fiduciary Advice
We determine your readiness for retirement and construct a retirement income plan. We'll analyze your situation to determine whether any tax, insurance, or estate planning updates that are necessary upon retirement.
We'll work with you and your estate planning attorney to help you create or update your estate planning documents. If you'd like, we'll join you for each meeting to be a thinking partner for you. If you don't have an estate planning attorney, don't worry- we'll help you find one!
We'll help you determine the best source for your annual charitable giving. For some clients, this is writing a check, but for others it may be a qualified charitable distribution, gifting appreciated stock, or setting up a donor-advised fund. If you'd like to put together a multi-year giving plan, we'll also help you do that!
We'll review your willingness and ability to take risk and put together a recommended asset allocation model for you.

We will be sensitive to your tax situation and seek to be as tax-efficient as possible.
We'll work with your accountant and CPA to determine how taxes impact your financial plan. We are forward-thinking when it comes to taxes, and seek to plan for the long-term by creating tax plans that are flexible and multi-faceted. We will review your tax returns, searching for ways to optimize your tax efficiency.
We'll help you put together a strategy to save for your children's and grandchildren's education.
