Areas of Focus

The work we do with our clients can be broken down into four modules. Sometimes we focus on one issue at a time. Sometimes we tackle a few at the same time.

1. Big Picture Planning

Together we take stock of where you are today and explore how you want your life to be different in the future. Then we design a detailed plan to help get you there. You will have ongoing access to our planning portal, so you can view the plan and track your progress.

2. Workplace Retirement Solutions

At the Employee Level:

If you are a participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, we can help you manage your account on an individual basis. As an unbiased, independent advisor, we analyze your plan's investment choices and design an appropriate portfolio for your needs. We review the account with you annually, giving you the confidence that comes with delegating the ongoing management of your retirement plan to a professional. 

At the Plan Level:

If you a non-profit organization or small business owner interested in starting or reviewing a group 401(k) or 403(b), we can be a resource. We will analyze your company and either design your new plan or make recommendations on how to improve your current plan. In addition to servicing the plan, we provide all plan participants with ongoing education about retirement and personal finance.

To avoid a conflict of interests, we never consult at both the plan level and the employee level for the same organization.

3. Investment Management

We also manage investment accounts outside of workplace retirement plans, such as IRAs, brokerage accounts, education savings plans, and tax-deferred annuities. We utilize a disciplined and academically-researched investment approach that looks beyond traditional asset allocation and places an emphasis on downside protection. We combine two schools of thought in investment analysis - fundamental (valuing investments based on financial health) and technical (identifying opportunities by analyzing trends such as price movement and trading volume).

4. Insurance Consulting (life, disability, long-term care)

We help you determine the type and amount of coverage you need. The analysis includes financial modeling with our top-of-the-line planning software. Don't just take our word for it - we will "stress test" your current plan and show you how unexpected events (like loss of income or a long-term care event) can affect your finances. We can also provide a comprehensive review of any current policies.
