Saving for retirement and transforming your savings into a tax-efficient, reliable stream of income require two very different skill sets. When retirement is right around the corner, we’ll work to make the transition into this new and exciting life stage as hassle-free and seamless as we can.
Rather than tuning in to the noise of the media and the market, we focus on developing tailored long-term plans designed to reach your financial goals.
As part of that plan, we place a special emphasis on protecting you and your portfolio from what is likely your biggest enemy - yourself. That’s because (thanks to the way we’re wired), most of us are prone to making poor investment decisions with our own money. Which makes a trusted advisor an important asset to your investment portfolio - because we can help keep your emotions and behavioral biases out of your investments.
While some say there’s both a science and an art to investing, we tend to focus on the former. That’s why, as we develop your investment portfolio, we focus on what we’ve learned from decades of research, history and analysis - not from what some news anchor shares on TV.
The decisions we make in regard to your portfolio are based on scientific reasoning and your own long-term goals. We develop evidence-based portfolios that are low-cost, globally diversified and focused on capturing market returns through ETFs, index funds and other broad market mutual funds.
In an effort to both protect your wealth and provide peace of mind, we have chosen to utilize a third-party custodian, TD Ameritrade, to house our clients’ assets.
