A Guide to Financial Advice, Planning & Wealth Management

Balance Your Investment Demands

Investment management and portfolio selection are essential steps in building your net worth.

At the early stages of wealth management, the focus is on accumulation planning which involves addressing your individual investment needs, risk tolerance, and determining the suitability of different types of securities that will fit your goals.

As your wealth grows, needs and desires will change as competing interests make demands on available funds. Long-term investment planning seeks to achieve a balance between those demands, such as planning for a child’s education and supporting a comfortable standard of living in retirement.

When risk increases, so can the potential for reward. You can find comfort in the long-term planning process that tests over 1,000 risk/return scenarios to see if your portfolio design and income needs are realistic. Asset allocation is used to distribute your investable assets (both inside and outside of retirement plans) among different investment categories such as stocks, bonds, and cash. This process is designed to reduce overall investment risk while providing you with the confidence that experts are watching over your investment returns.
