Steve addresses many of the financial planning issues in an integrated fashion

  • Retirement Planning. Am I on track? What steps should I take?  What "buckets" should I allocate my savings toward?
  • Investment Planning and investment management. What is my current asset allocation, and what changes should I make in today's environment based on my goals and time horizon?
  • Income tax minimization.  
  • Estate Planning. Your estate plan should be updated based on your unique situation, considerig both tax and non-tax issues.  How can I provide the legacy for my children and grandchildren?  Is a trust or will needed?
  • Business Transition. Planning for the most effective way to transfer a business (family, management, outsiders) and integrating this with my retirement needs.
  • Insurance Planning. Determining whether you have the right amount, type, and structure of insurance.
