03. Our Process

Our Services


Retirement Planning

Many people struggle walking away from work because it often provides purpose and meaningful relationships. Retirement planning is more about helping you feel confident in dialing up what’s important to you, while cutting back what isn’t. That is how you maximize life. We look for ways to minimize lifetime taxes in the process.

Investment Planning

With investing, the only goal that matters is yours. We aim to help you maximize your after-tax spendable dollar by focusing on the things you can control such as costs, taxation, and diversification. We partner with an expert team, Asset Dedication, to build income ladders and growth portfolios as laid out in your financial plan.

Estate Planning

Having an estate plan is paramount in ensuring your estate is handled according to your wishes. Together with your estate planning attorney, we can assist in drafting documents and reviewing your situation so your estate benefits the people and charities you care about most.

Tax Planning

Want to maximize your wealth? Start by minimizing your lifetime tax bill. Whether it’s investment location, tax gain/loss harvesting, donations-in-kind, qualified charitable contributions, or Roth conversions, we leave no rock unturned as we explore how to accomplish your plan tax efficiently. We’ll coordinate with your tax preparer to ensure your tax planning is reported properly.

Insurance Planning

If there’s one thing certain about life – it’s uncertainty. Planning to mitigate risk helps protect and preserve your wealth. Even though you may think you’ve covered all the bases, life sometimes has a funny way of throwing you a curveball when you least expect it.


To remove conflict of interests, we charge a flat fee based on your complexity and the value we can provide. We don’t receive commissions from any products, and we aren’t your typical asset manager advisor that solicits your assets to get paid more. As holistic planners, we look at your entire financial picture and provide unbiased advice.

As fee-only fiduciaries, we are your advocate seeking only what is in your best interest and have no other financial incentive behind our advice. We are educators, not salesmen.
