Who We Serve
Your ability to save and invest will always be unique based on your facts and circumstances. By utilizing benchmarks as a useful tool you can track your progress through each stage of your life. As an example, an investor aged 40 should have saved 1.5x to 2.5x their salary. Likewise, an investor aged 60 should have saved 6x to 11x salary. There is no “one size fits all”. Life can get in the way at times with children, education, housing demands, medical situations to name but a few.
Our goal is to help you identify and prioritize your goals while also helping you understand the impacts of the current events taking place in your life. We can work together to develop and implement a financial plan. With a plan in place, you are a step ahead as you continue to accumulate assets during your life.
Retirement Red Zone
If you are nearing retirement, it is said that for some, the best offense is a good defense. This Retirement Red Zone can also be referred to as the Preservation Phase of your Retirement Planning. This is because there is less time to recover from losses. This is also the time frame where your investments require strategy that can provide growth but also factor your tolerance for risk.
Our objectives are to help you understand the purchasing power, or lack thereof, of your accumulated savings and investments. We will help you assess your tolerance for risk. This is important in order to develop a cohesive strategy that factors the amount of time you will continue to earn and addresses the shortages or surpluses of accumulated savings.
You’ve worked long, hard, and smart over the course of your lifetime. Work for some was fun but for many others, at times, it was not real fun. Now it’s time to move on to the last stage of our life where we can retire with dignity. Spend quality time with your spouse, enjoy your grandchildren, travel while still young, devote yourself to your passions.
Our job is ensuring that based upon your accumulation of savings, your portfolio of investments will be properly structured to provide you with money now, money soon and money later. This is also known as the Bucket Strategy approach.
