Life, Disability, and Long-Term Care Insurance Planning
As humans, we’re wired to protect those we love. We work hard to care for our families – our children, our parents, our siblings, etc. – as long as we are able; but there are times when unexpected events don’t fit into our plans.
We will help you determine what financial needs your family may have if you were suddenly unable to work, or unable to care for yourself. That way, you may continue to protect those you love.
Tax Efficient Investment Strategies for High Net Worth Individuals
For certain high-net-worth individuals, we offer specialized investment strategies to create income, reduce taxes, and diversify beyond the typical stock and bond portfolio.

Business Continuity and Succession Planning for Death or Disability
As a business owners, what will happen to the business you have worked so hard to build if you are suddenly unable to work due to unexpected disability or death? Do you have a spouse who will step in and run the business, or a business partner who will buy-out your share of ownership?
We help business owners put protections in place for these types of situations. We can help you decide the best course of action including how to transfer the risk of these types of continuity plans, and create funding vehicles for buy/sell agreements.
