“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain
We focus on helping you prepare for retirement because it encompasses all aspects of your financial life – from healthcare to tax mitigation to asset allocation. In fact, we like to think of retirement planning as the intersection between life and finance – between the “hard science” of numbers and calculations, and the “soft science” of making decisions that help you live your life to its fullest.
Beyond number crunching
Making sure that you’re ready for retirement involves more than finding the best rate of return and monitoring your investment portfolio. It requires planning and decisions around the following:
- Health care options
- Medicare and Social Security
- Spousal benefits
- Survival benefits
- Employer-sponsored plan options
- Taxes during retirement
- Strategies to minimize risk of outliving your money
- And much more
When is the right time to start?
Today. We all know it’s human nature to put off until tomorrow what should be done today, but the bottom line is this: when it comes to investing, time is the most powerful ally you have. Why? Because compounding returns are a powerful way to build wealth. And with an earlier start, you have more time to wait out volatile markets.
So whether you’re 65 or 25, just starting your career or nearing retirement age, let’s start the conversation now and put you on a path toward the future you envision.
