Small Business Owners

Entrepreneurs are often so busy with day-to-day business tasks that they neglect both their business’s financial planning needs as well as their own. That’s a huge mistake.

Creating and sticking to a financial plan now can help keep your business thriving and make sure you have enough to retire, meet your charitable goals, and effectively pass on assets to heirs.

Succession Planning

Your company is built to last. But when you are ready to step back and let go of the reins, will the next generation preserve your legacy? Life has a tendency to deliver some unexpected challenges. When it comes to your business, planning ahead for these unforeseen events is essential. Whether you choose to sell up, retire or have to separate yourself from your business due to health reasons, it’s important to plan for that day.

Effective tax planning requires an understanding of all different tax consequences, including, but not limited to, income tax rates, capital gains tax, gift and estate tax. The tax considerations of rebalancing a client’s portfolio are evaluated upfront as they ultimately impact a client’s investment return. We take a proactive approach to finding tax deductions and creating tax-advantaged solutions as part of your overall plan. We seek to protect your estate from potential tax erosion in future years.

Broker vs. Fiduciary: How the Fiduciary Standard Matters when choosing a
financial advisor to manage your investments

Why It Matters How Your Advisor Is Paid

Who gives you financial advice? Why does it matter how he or she is paid? Because it’s probably the most important thing determining the quality of advice you receive. Brokers sell financial products. Their standard of fiduciary care is a “suitability” standard. This lower standard of care means they can benefit more from product sales than the client – as long as their products are very broadly considered to be “suitable,” they’re OK to sell.

A better way to receive investment advice, management and financial planning is to work with professionals who are required to put your needs before their needs. An advisor held to a Fiduciary Standard occupies a position of special trust and confidence when working with clients because he/she is required to act with undivided loyalty to the client. Find out why this matters to you by watching the video to your right.
