Protecting all that is yours.

As much as we don’t want it to be, risk is a part of life. And one of the most important facets of financial planning is protecting all that you have worked so hard to build. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help manage risk when it comes to your financial plan. It just takes the right approach, a little discipline, and a lot of diligence to assess the risks that could derail your life goals, and be prepared for them.

Together, we can assess where your risk lies and determine your level of comfort with it. We will explore what actions and plans to put in place to provide the level of protection you need and can count on. It’s about establishing a safety net by regularly reviewing – and adjusting – your portfolio, estate plan and insurance policies to make sure they meet your needs at every stage of your life.

We can help you protect your overall financial plan, your way of life and your ability to generate income even when the unexpected happens.

Your Income

No matter how secure you are in your job, it is always a good idea to protect your ability to earn income.Should sickness or injury leave you incapacitated, having adequate disability insurance can certainly help provide for your household. You also may want to explore options such as diversifying your income streams or using property or real estate to continue earning money even if you are unable to work.

We can help you identify income options to supplement your current earnings and perhaps provide back-up income when you may need it most.

Your Investments

Every investment involves some risk, but the key is whether you’re willing to take on the risk for the potential reward. That’s where proper asset allocation, finding the right balance of investment strategies, comes in. Your particular mix should balance risk with reward in an effort to help you reach your goals.

By regularly monitoring and reviewing your portfolio, we can ensure you have the right balance of investments with the potential to help generate the returns you want and provide the protection you need for where you are in life.

Your Retirement

The goal of every retirement plan is basically the same: to ensure that your money lasts at least as long as you do and, ideally, even longer. When you start taking more money out of your retirement account than you are putting in, you’ll want those assets to be as secure as possible in order to generate dependable income.

With the right risk-management approach, accompanied by diligent monitoring of your investments, we can help mitigate the risk to your retirement planning by minimizing exposure to market uncertainties and tempering the effects of inflation on your portfolio.

Your Health

One of the risks we all face, regardless of age, is the potential for sudden illness, injury and, subsequently, the need for long-term care. All of these have far-reaching effects not just on your health, but on your way of life, your ability to earn income and on your overall finances.

We can help protect you and your family from financial hardship caused by an illness, by ensuring you have the right types and amounts of insurance, including disability insurance to provide income if you are unable to work.

Your Legacy

You’ve worked hard for everything you have accomplished. Having a documented, well-structured estate and charitable giving plan can protect your legacy, and provide the confidence of your loved ones being cared for when you are no longer able to do so.

We can work with your tax and legal professionals to create or update your estate plan documents, such as your wills, trusts and powers of attorney and ensure your beneficiary designations are up to date on everything from your retirement accounts to your insurance policies. And at least once a year, we will review the titling on your assets and financial accounts to ensure they are still accurate and update them as needed.

Your Business

As a business owner, there’s a lot to think about to manage risk for your business, especially when you are focused on running it. For most, a large part of managing risk involves having the right insurance, including health insurance and retirement plans for your employees, key person insurance and insuring the value of your inventory and your overhead.

We can be your partner behind the scenes, offering guidance not only on the financial aspects of your business, but protecting your interests too.
