Planning Specialties

Financial Planning is the process of carefully managing your finances to achieve your goals and dreams. Each decision should not be made without considering the impact it may have over another area of your financial situation.

Depending on where you are in life the planning process should at the very least help answer the following basic questions:

10 to 20 years from retirement:

  • How much money will I need when I retire?
  • What's a realistic retirement age?
  • Is my savings rate and investment strategy optimal to achieve my goal?
  • Are there other intermediate and short term financial goals that need to be addressed?
  • Is my family savings strategy protected from unexpected risks like premature death or disability?

5 years or currently at anticipated retirement date:

  • Do I run the risk of running out of money during retirement?
  • What's the optimal investment strategy to create a consistent retirement paycheck with the least amount of market risk?
  • Is my plan protected from unexpected risks like long term care or illness
