  • Key elements of a plan include spending, income, investments, annual contributions, debt, net worth and your risk level before and during retirement

A financial plan is a written long-term plan to guide you to meet your retirement goals and maintain income in retirement. A plan provides peace of mind to your family, defines your goals, monitors progress and drives adjustments. Plans make you less likely to overreact to market volatility and increase one’s confidence and effectiveness in managing income, spending, saving, investing and debt.

Our strategy is a Diversified Mutual Fund & Sector Portfolio. We use Tactical Equity Allocation to help reduce portfolio risk when market risk is high and increase portfolio risk when market risk is low. Our portfolios are designed using Strategic Adaptive Asset Class & Sector Allocation, Active Mutual Funds and Individual Stocks.

The goal for our portfolios is to outperform their benchmark after all fees over the long term. We focus on low management fees and investments that outperform their benchmarks. Performance is measured over one, three, five, and ten-year periods.
