Client Specific Solutions
There are a number of things that differentiate us from others in the financial services industry.
- We use customized portfolios for each client, rather than forcing everyone into one of a few model portfolios.
- We take a problem-solving approach to each client:
- For those concerned about their retirement income lasting throughout their lifetime, we do long term projections.
- For clients attempting to pass on to the next generations, we advise using a variety of allowable asset discounts to avoid unnecessary taxes.
- For those attempting to avoid exposing heirs to unnecessary legal asset claims, we provide guidance.
- For clients who want to form their own businesses, we assist them through the use of creative strategies regarding legal protection, tax avoidance and social security benefit forfeitures.
Below are some examples of these ideas applied to real life situations:
- For a client who wanted to purchase a company after retirement, we provided guidance on the business structure, financing, and how to avoid reducing his social security benefits.
- We advised another client on the use of conservation easements to pass on valuable land to future generations, which provided substantial income tax savings to the parents, and even greater inheritance tax savings, both state and federal, for the heirs.
- We provided advice to a businessman on how to structure the ownership and beneficial purchase of life insurance to pay business loans tax free to the business, and both income and estate taxes to the family.
