The number one goal of retirement (besides health & happiness) is to make sure that your money lasts as long as you do!
No one has the ability to accurately and consistently predict what asset classes will outperform in any given market condition or over any particular time period. We believe that sustainable investing and diversification across investment sectors, styles, and asset classes is the only way to provide reasonable appropriate exposure to the markets.
Most people have no idea if they have enough income and investments to last a long retirement. Nor do they understand the negative impacts of various risks and taxes in retirement. Many have no idea when they can retire, or once they do, what their goals are for prospering in retirement. We use a data-driven analysis to both determine if you have enough money but also help you identify your lifestyle goals and priorities in retirement.
PROTECTING YOUR INCOME
Expenses and taxes if not managed properly, can be the largest drag on your your investment returns. As a fiduciary, we are always keenly aware of fees and by re-categorizing retirement assets and utilizing tax efficient withdrawal strategies we can help reduce taxes in retirement. Efficiently re-positioning retirement assets and utilizing the proper sequence of withdrawals (tax-free accounts, tax-deferred accounts, and taxable accounts) can reduce the negative effect of Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) and Social Security taxation creating a more effective withdrawal strategy.
PROTECTING YOUR CAPITAL
Capital preservation strategy is an investment approach that aims to prevent losses in a portfolio by outpacing inflation and avoiding risk. We use this investment strategy for retirees or people close to retirement who require their capital to pay for their daily, monthly and random expenses. These portfolios are designed to minimize volatility and protect against market losses.
