Wealth Accumulation & Retirement Planning
One of the most gratifying parts of working with employees of public education and their families, is helping them establish a habit of regular savings, investing and tax planning strategies to accumulate wealth. Whether saving for a house, education, retirement or another specific goal, the first step to financial independence is wealth accumulation. I work with my clients to review and monitor their current investments, allocation and savings rate to help ensure they’re properly aligned with their short and long term goals.
Even before one accumulates wealth, establishing a proper risk management strategy becomes increasingly critical. What would the result of a catastrophic illness, injury, or even untimely death be on your investment and retirement planning? Having the proper insurances in place is essential to protect your future and your family. Setting up a plan of care in the event long term care is needed by you or your spouse is also critical to maintaining wealth. I help my clients in each of these areas of risk management.
Retirement Income Planning
There comes a time in every investor’s lifespan when they transition from a growth focus to an income mode. Is there a proper way to disburse one’s assets to recreate a paycheck in retirement? There are many answers to this question. Perhaps most importantly, proper income planning before and in retirement is critical to avoid running out of money prematurely and maintaining the desired income level throughout retirement despite inflation or the ups and downs of the stock market.
