Estate Planning

Who needs an estate plan? The better question might be ‘Who doesn’t?’! Don’t get hung up on the word ‘estate’. If you have worked, saved a little money, bought a house, made an investment, or anything else along those lines, then you have one! Good estate planning helps you to direct what happens to what you have now after you pass away. Yes, a will will be a part of your estate plan…but we can help with so much more.

Family & Small Business

Each small business and family–owned company has its own personality, its own set of values, and its own goals for success. Family-oriented issues of intergenerational transitions, ownership, trust and retirement must work hand–in–hand with the business issues of finance, strategic planning, and tax efficiency. As the business grows to second, third and fourth generations, these issues become increasingly challenging.

Group Benefits

As your family business or small business grows, you begin to surround yourself with employees that you hope are just as passionate about the business as you are. Keeping the best employees becomes about more than just salary and bonuses. We can show you how to use group benefits to bring added value to your employees and retain these valuable company assets.

Risk Management

‘Risk’ isn’t an easily definable term that can be neatly summarized in a few sentences. There are many different ways to tackle the risk management issues in life, whether it’s a wearing seat belt or bike helmet to taking the time to be sure that you have the right amount (and right kind) of insurance to act as a safeguard for family members, and business associates.

Retirement

Most people find it difficult to paint a detailed picture of how they want to live when they retire; therefore, they also find it difficult to determine how much money they’ll need to live on once they retire. Sound like you?

Investment Focus | Issue 17 | Keep Looking Long Term

It’s fair to say that everyone is happy to see September end, at least from an investing standpoint. It was a month full of market volatility due to stickier inflation data and the U.S. Federal Reserve’s commitment to higher-for-longer interest rates. The markets had been expecting central banks to already be discussing rate cuts, but that hasn’t been the case. On top of that, September tends to be one of the worst months historically for the stock market, and this year was no different.

Near the end of September, the markets were looking toward the risk of a government shutdown, that ended up being kicked down the road.
