Investment consulting addresses the top concern of affluent clients: preserving their wealth. It is the primary offering of most financial advisors.

Advanced planning addresses the four primary financial concerns beyond investment consulting:

  • Wealth Enhancement: Mitigating taxes and cash flow planning.
  • Wealth Transfer: Taking care of your heirs and those important to you.
  • Wealth Preservation: Preserve your assets from being unjustly taken.
  • Charitable Giving: Maximizing charitable impact.

Relationship management has two parts.

  • Client Relationship: working with you in a collaborative and consistent process.
  • Professional Team:

  2. Call on specialized experts when needed.
  3. Utilize our Professional Team to provide a 360 analysis of your situation.
