Business Owners

As a business owner your financial plan and the optimization of your investment portfolio must take into consideration a broader spectrum of considerations.

  • The family – business financial dynamic
  • Providing employee retirement solutions
  • Tax liabilities
  • Business succession planning
  • Liquidity
  • Long-term risks to business and family

Individual & Families

For many individuals and families the optimization of investing starts with their company’s retirement plan (401k, 403b, etc.). For others, investments are central to their annual income.

  • Most company retirement plans are limited in their investment options
  • Some company retirement plans come with a doorway which allows for greater growth potential
  • Protecting against catastrophic financial loss during retirement is a imperative for most individual and family retirement planning
  • Identification of investing purpose; growth -vs- income is essential for defining optimization of investments
