Types of Clients Who Benefit From Our Services
Families/Couples – It can be overwhelming dealing with all of the competing demands on your cash flow. How do you save for a home, college education, retirement, and other goals? Are you properly insured? There are different needs for different stages of life. We can help you sort through it all and develop a plan that is right for you.
Single Clients – When you are on your own you may need someone to be a sounding board; to advise you on your future. We partner with you to help you make the best decisions for your situation.
Retirees – You have worked hard to get to this point. We can help you determine an asset allocation that best serves your needs now. We will also work with you to determine how to withdraw from your retirement accounts, when to collect Social Security, and evaluate long term care insurance.
People in Transition – Loss of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, disability, and sudden wealth can all bring changes to your lives. You need to reevaluate where you are and where you are going. We can help navigate you through these times.
This service includes financial life planning and ongoing asset management. Realistic and measurable goals are set and objectives to reach those goals are defined. As goals and objectives change over time, suggestions are made and implemented on an ongoing basis.
The scope of work and fee for a Wealth Management Agreement is provided in writing prior to the start of the relationship. A Wealth Management Agreement may include: review of cash flow and net worth; insurance review; investment management (including performance reporting); strategic tax planning; retirement planning; education planning; estate planning review; special items such as purchasing or refinancing a home; as well as the implementation of recommendations in the investment area. Referrals are given for implementation in the other areas if needed.
The engagement also includes unlimited telephone support, meetings as required, ongoing financial life planning services, and quarterly, semi-annual, or annual written portfolio reviews as negotiated with each client.
Financial Life Planning – (Fee-for-Service Engagements)
A financial life plan is designed to help the client with aspects of financial life planning without ongoing investment management or implementation.
The financial life plan may include, but is not limited to: a net worth statement; a cash flow statement; a review of investment accounts, including review of asset allocation and general recommendations (not specific investments); review of retirement plans; education planning; strategic tax planning; review of insurance coverage and recommendations, if any; one or more retirement scenario projections, estate planning review; and other special items such as purchasing or refinancing a home.
General investment advice (such as determining asset allocation) is provided as part of a financial life plan. Final investment selection and implementation is at the discretion of the client.
A written plan is provided to the client once the engagement is complete. After that time (after completion of said engagement) any future meetings or engagements will be treated as a new engagement.
Workshops/Educational Services – Linda has taught at the academic level. She has also provided employee workshops/consultations for companies. Contact Linda if you are looking for a speaker.
Fees on all of the above services vary depending on the complexity of the plan and the total value of the assets. We provide a complimentary meeting with a potential client to have the opportunity to get to know them better and to get an idea of their personal situation. We are then able to provide a quote for the plan.
We do not sell any products or receive any commissions or referral fees on any products or services. Because of this, I feel that I am able to offer impartial advice on how to best meet your investment and financial needs.
