Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We utilize traditional and non-traditional investments, fee-based programs, as well as structured products in our retirement income planning and wealth management. Our focus is on creating tax efficient programs for clients that allow them to fill their and their families lifelong needs. We utilize the latest technology, investments, programs to create a solution that makes sense. It is far easier to avoid a mistake than to correct one. We take our time crafting your solutions and pay attention to the items that are most important to you, not just rate of return and yield. It's not about managing money; it's about achieving your goals. We can't control the markets, interest rates, or the government, but we can control how much you pay in taxes, where your distributions come from in retirement, and how you feel about your investment strategy.
