My goal is to simplify the complexities of wealth and investments to enhance the quality of a client’s life, time and resources. In preparing a comprehensive financial plan tailored to meet the client’s individual needs, the following areas are addressed: 1. RETIREMENT PLANNING - Evaluate the client’s current investments, savings rate and their long term goals in order to prepare retirement projections under various scenarios. 2. INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT - Customize the client's portfolios including allocation of the workplace retirement plan and utilization of low-cost, no-load mutual funds, bonds, CD's and commercial paper given the unique risk tolerance of the client. 3. TAX PLANNING - Offer recommendations to minimize income taxes. 4. ESTATE PLANNING - Evaluate client's goals for children, grandchildren and charitable bequests, and ensure that their documents reflect their wishes and minimize estate tax consequences. 5. RISK MANAGEMENT - Determine the client’s need for all types of insurance and discuss the most economical way to obtain. 6. BUDGETING AND DEBT MANAGEMENT - Determine priorities and develop realistic budgets.
