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.

  • 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 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Fee-Based Financial Planning
    As a fee-based advisor, I am compensated for the time and expertise put into designing and creating your personal financial plan. Under this fee structure, I have a responsibility to ensure your interests and goals are always put first.
