Areas of Expertise

Here are my areas of expertise, which I will use to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Retirement Planning
    Perhaps one of the greatest financial challenges you will face in your lifetime is preparing adequately for your retirement. I will help you create a plan that will assess your current financial situation, determine the retirement lifestyle for your future, review the many options available, and put solutions in place to help ensure you achieve the retirement of your dreams.
  • Qualified Plan Design Assistance
    Sponsoring a qualified plan is a critically important step toward achieving retirement security for you and your employees. Choosing the right plan design elements will allow you to balance your goals for tax deferred wealth accumulation with the cost and complexity involved. Together with our plan specialists, I will help you to evaluate multiple plan design options and understand the impact they will have on you, your employees and the bottom line.
  • Qualified Plan Fiduciary Education
    As a retirement plan sponsor you face a sometimes bewildering array of regulations and responsibilities. It is important to find a source of trustworthy information to help you to manage your responsibilities and mitigate the associated risks. Let me help you to understand your options to develop an approach that works for you and your plan.
  • Qualified Plan Benchmarking
    Understanding how your retirement plan compares to industry benchmarks for expenses, performance and design is not only a good business practice, it is becoming a regulatory expectation. Based on our experience and industry resources, I will provide you with comparative data to document a sound due diligence process.
  • Qualified Plan Employee Education
    Qualified plan benefits are most effective when they are thoroughly understood and properly utilized by plan participants. Quality benefits education is not a one-time event but rather a long term program to build awareness, understanding and appreciation. I will work with you to develop and deliver a comprehensive education plan across multiple media to help produce positive results.
  • Retirement Income Planning
    Becoming a retiree doesn't mean retirement planning ends. Spending your retirement assets can actually be more complex than building them. The investment and savings strategies you used to accumulate wealth may need to be adjusted as you prepare for and enter retirement. Together we can develop a plan to help you achieve financial security in retirement - through our unique strategy designed to preserve and continue to manage your wealth, protect against the risks that can affect your retirement years, and provide you with predictable and steady income for life.
  • Financial Planning
    Long-term financial security doesn't happen by chance. Many things in life can have an impact - positive or negative - on your financial well-being. I'm here to help you take control of your future. Together we'll identify your most important goals and dreams, and build and implement a financial plan to help you achieve them. And because life is unpredictable, we'll monitor your progress on a regular basis to ensure your plan evolves as your needs and the situation around you changes.
  • Employee and Executive Benefits Planning
    Employee benefits are an important part of the growth of your business. Benefits such as health insurance, pension plans, group life and disability income plans make up the compensation package that helps ensure continued employee satisfaction and well-being within your company. Designing an employee benefit approach can be a complicated, technical and time-consuming matter. Working with a specialist who offers access to comprehensive employee benefit services through local and independently owned companies, provides a number of advantages, including experienced professionals with access to top providers and a wealth of benefit choices tailored to meet your business' ever changing needs.
