What goes into a plan
An economy of any size needs to be protected from risk, unforeseen events, and catastrophic losses while it continues to grow. That’s why we recommend a combination of insurance and investment solutions as the foundation of a lifetime financial plan.
Insurance is the bedrock of a financial plan because it protects income and assets, the two things you need to generate substantial wealth. Permanent life insurance, in addition to its many guarantees and benefits, also provides unique retirement income opportunities, especially for business owners.
We manage capital using the same proven techniques used by high-net-worth families, pension funds and institutional investors. That means looking for opportunities within a broad spectrum of investments, including public markets, real estate and other asset classes.
As an independent firm, we’re able to offer the ideal combination of protection and investment growth because your long-term success is our priority.
Discretionary wealth management
Discretionary portfolio management gives you access to assets and investment strategies not typically available to the public. Ideal for large portfolios, this approach provides:
Diversification for large portfolios that includes a broader range of traditional and alternative investments
Stable returns with lower volatility than traditional brokerage or fund accounts
The daily guidance of a licensed portfolio manager
We also offer savings and investment programs from leading national providers, including insured investment funds, annuities and savings programs for children.
