Financial Planning

We charge a one-time flat fee for a detailed financial analysis ranging from $2,500 – $10,000. The complexity of your situation drives the cost. That analysis may include (depending on your circumstance), retirement planning, insurance analysis, estate planning, cash flow and tax planning and an analysis of your portfolio. A “roadmap” for your future is provided with suggested action items.

Ongoing Asset Management with Financial Plan Updates

We can manage your investments (they are held at our custodian) under a tiered fee schedule. View Fee Schedule >

Ongoing asset management includes updates to your financial roadmap on an as needed basis. We recommend that we revise your projections and roadmap when things change you (maybe you want to retire sooner) or perhaps because tax laws changed.

What are you paying now?

We are fee-only, NAPFA-registered advisors and act as fiduciaries 100% of the time. All of our income comes from our clients. If you work with a commission or fee-based advisor, which may include stockbrokers, insurance agents, etc. you may not know exactly how much the relationship is costing you. Those types of advisors can receive revenue from a fee they charge you, and possibly also commissions, trails, and financial incentives offered by the firms that offer the products they sell. They may have an incentive to sell you one type of insurance instead of another or one type of annuity or mutual fund over another because they might earn more.

Four Strategies for Using Liquid Alts in Market Downturns

nvestors are shocked that the so-called 60/40 portfolio failed to provide protection from the bear market in stocks this year. Many thought stock and bond prices always move in opposite directions, which was the foundation of their diversification strategy. Today the average 60/40 portfolio is down 18.63% compared with an 18.6% decline in the S&P 500, so this belief was wrong. The combination of rising interest rates and the threat of a recession has hammered both stock and bonds.

Tax Loss harvesting – Pros and Cons

Harvesting losses seems like an automatic thing to do in a year where most asset classes decline in value. Like anything else, though, it makes sense for some, but it is not a great idea for others. Even for those for whom it does make sense, the advantages are limited and only begin to benefit you once you have gains to offset the losses. For some people, surprisingly, capturing GAINS is a good strategy!
