Retirement & Income Planning
While all of us would like to retire in comfort, the time and energy needed to formulate a retirement plan keeps many of us from preparing that plan.
Let us help you make a plan that will allow you to meet your retirement goals and gives you the flexibility to let it evolve with future changes in your needs and the financial markets. No one can predict the future, but having realistic expectations and designing ways to limit losses is the sign of an effective retirement and income plan.
Seminars and Workshops
We offer a wide range of informational education seminars and workshops for employees and groups. These workshops can be topic specific or generalized in nature. They can be scaled for time and specific content as well as format. They can be presented to groups ranging in size from 5 to over 100.
The general outline of all workshops is the same regardless of size or topic.

Our risk-management investment approach seeks to protect and grow wealth.
We believe that it’s critical to defend against the devastating impact large drawdowns can have on the long-term growth of an investment portfolio. We therefore develop and implement investment strategies specifically geared toward our client’s unique investment goals as well as their tolerance for risk.
Our approach is based on using varied strategies to help minimize downside risk. While each of our strategies has its own methodology, our main goal is to avoid large-scale losses. We believe that diversification across multiple risk-controlled strategies helps manage wealth for both performance and protection.
In attempting to avoid large losses, we utilize strategies that emphasize low correlation to broader volatile market activity, whether through hedged equity with the use of protective options, tactical strategies to dynamically adjust to market conditions, or other risk management practices.
Do you know the right time to draw your Social Security benefits? Are you married, divorced, or widowed? What if you are still working? The Social Security Administration can help me design a plan for drawing my benefits correctly, right?
Are these questions that have crossed your mind, or do you simply have questions and do not know where to turn? Our advisors can discuss the Social Security System and how it works for you. How the system has changed and what changes are expected in the future. How it can be used as an asset in planning for retirement income and what specific benefits should be considered if you are married, divorced, or widowed.
Do not let one of your best retirement assets slip through your fingers. Ask how we can help make your asset more advantageous to you.
