“Will I have enough to last my lifetime?”
“Will I have enough to pass on to my children?”
“Am I saving enough. And, how much is enough?”
No matter our stage in life, the questions about money are essential to our wellbeing. Sometimes, we’re faced with a different set of questions: “What do I do with this large sum of money that I just inherited?” Or, “How do I invest this large sum from my divorce?”
The answer to every financial question begins with a financial plan.
A plan is essential to creating a state of financial health. A plan accounts for the unpredictability of life, such as unemployment, the unexpected death of a partner or spouse, drops in the stock market, and illness. A plan also creates the reserves to live our dreams.
Our financial planning takes into consideration your whole financial picture. Edge Financial Advisors will walk you through all the major steps of the financial planning process, including:
Our first job is to listen. Ask some follow-up questions. Answer your questions. And then listen some more. What you need is not cookie-cutter. There is no one-size-fits-all financial plan that covers the waterfront for every person.
Once we’ve digested where you are and where you want to head, we utilize the latest technology in retirement planning to model different scenarios and paint a clear picture of your future. We revise your goals and predict how likely you are to achieve them with your current plan.
In the end, we want you to feel like the proverbial 16-ton weight was just lifted off your shoulder—so you can live freely. That is the state of wellbeing.
We provide full-service investment management by building you a portfolio that seeks to achieve your long-term financial goals. We create investment mixes that aim to produce high returns while reducing the correlation of your portfolio to broad market downturns. In short, that means when the markets swing downward, your future is protected.
Many of our clients want to extend their financial wellbeing to the next generation. We help you develop a plan for passing on your assets to the next generation. We facilitate a conversation between you and your estate planning attorney to make sure that your assets are passed on exactly the way you want them to be.
No one likes paying taxes. Here at Edge, we take tax management seriously and all of our financial plans and investment strategies are optimized to make sure that they are done in the most tax efficient way possible.
