What is financial planning?
Financial planning is gathering information relating to the financial health and well being of a client. We will then evaluate this information compared to the client’s goals and determine if there are gaps to be filled, current plans to be adjusted, or if he or she is on track to accomplish their goals.
Is a financial planner right for me?
You can benefit from a financial planner’s services, whether you have very limited resources or a sizable estate. We can save you time, and provide experience and expertise that we’ve learned in over thirty years advising clients.
In today’s global economy, the pace of change, the ups and downs of the financial markets, and the flood of Internet information on every imaginable investment topic can be overwhelming. A reputable, qualified financial planner can answer your investment questions, and explain your options by creating an actionable plan.
We can save you time by creating a comprehensive financial plan that is customized to your specific resources, needs, and life stage.
How will I benefit?
By meeting in person with us and by working through our evaluation and planning process, you can gain a realistic picture of what it will take to achieve your financial goals. The result is less stress, which leads to a more enjoyable life.
We strive to create customized financial roadmaps designed to help you achieve financial independence.
Ideally, our process will give you the confidence and peace of mind that come from knowing you can enjoy financial independence, with adequate retirement income, and even provide for your beneficiaries after your death.

Based on our knowledge of your goals and changes in the market environment, we will monitor and manage your accounts on an ongoing basis, and consider potential new investment opportunities for your portfolio.
Ongoing, regular checkups
We will communicate with you regularly to see if your financial situation has changed.
