Helping you with Retirement Planning
Your vision is critical in creating your retirement financial plan. Do you picture working just a bit or a lot less? Do you want to travel, move to the suburbs, or start a passion project? Some things that remain consistent are the tools of the trade like 401k, Roth IRA, and Annuities. Blending together these tax-saving investments alongside Social Security, investments and other sources of income is where we turn numbers into purpose-driven plans.
Find your optimal investment strategy
Planning Early in your Career
When beginning to think about retirement early in your career you have the benefit of time on your side. You have the greatest amount of flexibility in terms of how much to allocate, when to allocate and how much risk-taking you want to consider. Understanding that it is hard to depart with any of your paychecks, we know that advising during this time is not just about showing you a calculator with compounding interest but really getting to the essence of what you envision for this period and maximizing this lead time.
Your relentless pursuit for work continues but you are curious to try new things at this point in your life. Whether you still need to work or just want to work, this stage is an open canvas allowing the best of two worlds. Your desire to work on some level gives yourself more time to save and maintain a positive cash flow while starting to put into motion that side hustle passion project or new charitable role in your community. Whatever the vision is for this new narrative, we are on board to help make it happen.
your 10-Year Plan
For some, the concept of transitioning into retirement may come as early as a decade or two before they are ready. Maybe you find yourself taking care of an aging parent or you just saw a comedy movie about retirement, nonetheless it’s never too early to start accumulating wealth. Our Advisors are here to listen and help you reevaluate your expenses to ensure positive cash flow, understand your lifestyle and set you up for a retirement on your terms.
You have phased into retirement and now it’s all about balancing what you have saved and turning to other income generating tools. Pivoting from asset allocation to asset protection is timely here as well as readjusting your budget on expenses around healthcare that tend to pop up later on. A fresh look at your estate plan can also be advantageous during this period.
The common thread in all of these scenarios is our meaningful relationships that come first and for that reason we have devised a unique cost-structure that allows for unbiased decision-making and an open line of communication so you don’t have to be concerned about the cost of advice.
Your 3-Step Process to a Personalized Retirement
The opportunities open to us during retirement are wider than ever, so we use this time to really get to the core of how you envision this time. We consider the timeframe we have to work with as well as explore other key variables like risk tolerance and where you are in your investments.
The retirement roadmap allows you to visualize your short term goals in the context of the long term vision so you can see a measurable progression in the plan. We also prepare you with “what if” scenarios as the longer you plan ahead, the higher the probability of life’s ups and downs popping up now and then.
As we continue to build and grow your retirement plan, reevaluating the plan every year will help you track your progress. As you get closer to retirement or are already retired, we continue to partner by tracking on a more short term basis. We are constantly tweaking the plan and in direct communication with you.
The starting point of any plan begins with a baseline understanding of your current investments and risk tolerance. Let’s get started and find yours.
