Team of Experts

We understand that your investment portfolio is only one aspect of your whole financial picture, which is why we work with a team of experts, including your CPA and Estate Attorney, to determine the most beneficial course of action and strategy for all of your wealth needs. And if you don’t have a CPA or Estate Attorney, we can help you find the right one, based on your specific goals.

We also work with Third-Party Administrators, Custodians, Record Keepers and other professionals in order to meet all of your retirement plan needs.

Having your own team of experts working closely together helps maximize the effectiveness of your plan and makes sure it stays in synch, with every item properly addressed.


In order to help you maximize your potential for success in all areas of your financial life, we focus on these important areas:

Wealth Enhancement

This process can be key to creating and maintaining your financial comfort. It can include:

  • Managing resources and your portfolio
  • Tax planning and tax efficiency issues
  • Personal savings
  • Simplifying your financial life
  • Education funding

Wealth Transfer

Proper estate planning is the most effective way to help ensure that you are able to provide for the financial health and well-being of your family. It also can reduce or prevent much of the stress that so often occurs when heirs attempt to sort out a family member’s estate.

Charitable Giving

We help you fulfill any philanthropic goals you might have and maximize the effectiveness of your charitable legacy.

Wealth and Income Protection

We work to ensure that your wealth is protected against catastrophic losses, an extended illness or disability and identity fraud. Business owners might also want to consider strategies to protect their wealth and the value of their businesses.

Retirement Plans

We also offer a comprehensive range of retirement plan solutions, from 401(k) plans to profit sharing plans, defined benefit plans and many other qualified plan types, we provide the options you need and the guidance to deserve. This means we can help you plan for — and enjoy — a more secure retirement, both personally and professionally.
