Establishing a sound estate plan is one of the most important steps to take when it comes to planning. A common misconception is that estate planning is only for the "ultra wealthy". Everyone, regardless of their wealth, should have a plan. We will work with our clients and enlist the help of our attorney partners to identify the proper direction for their legacy.
Cash Flow Planning
Stock markets are the greatest generator of return for investors over time, but their volatility can prevent investors from sticking to their long-term strategies and objectives. Sometimes investors will waiver. Understanding our client's projected cashflow is fundamental to our process of measuring their capacity to take risk with their savings. Our process helps them stay committed to reaching their long-term goals.

We create customized portfolio strategies tailored to our clients' specific needs. We apply a data driven approach, examine each client's cash flow, savings, and expenses and formulate for each of them a unique and personalized portfolio strategy. Our evidence based philosophy allows our clients peace of mind and a strategy to rely on during periods of market volatility.
We stress test our client's financial plan to make sure they have clear and obtainable goals. We will review scenarios such as buying a new home, college funding, and retirement to see how each scenario effects future outcomes in a variety of market scenarios.
Stock Compensation Planning
Receiving company equity compensation is widely viewed as an award, but it can also create surprises if left unchecked. Equity compensation can be a tax minefield that, if not carefully navigated, can create costly surprises at the end of the year. We help our clients mitigate tax liability and stock concentration by tactfully creating short and long term plans for their company equity.
When clients are passionate about philanthropy and have interest in supporting foundations or organizations important to them, we will create charitable plans that optimize tax savings while supporting the causes they value most.
