About My Practice
We specialize in helping individual investors just like you plan for a sustainable retirement. We bring depth of field, discipline and energy to your planning effort. You may not know the final results of any undersaving and investment mistakes you make for many years. It is critically important for you to save appropriately and invest wisely as you may not have the time, resources or vitality to recover from such mistakes.
We prepare informative studies that help you see if your retirement savings and investment strategies are on track to successfully sustain you in retirement.
Once we have helped you develop a sustainable retirement plan, we build and manage your investment portfolio to help you meet your needs. The bedrock of our investing approach is to help you meet your planned cash needs, achieve consistent asset growth, avoid unrewarded risks and control your tax and investing costs.
Our goal is to help you build the long-term wealth that will help you meet your needs and objectives. This helps free you from the short-term daily distractions of the markets that provide little context in helping you understand the success or failure of your investment plan.
