Life is full of surprises, when we're faced with life events both positive and negative, feeling prepared.... all we educate our clients about strategies that can flex with changes in their environment. When a client experiences life events such as an engagement, having a child, an unforeseen illness or even the death of a loved one that is when they typically begin thinking about Life insurance.
The best way to prepare for those planned and unplanned events is to learn about ways to protect yourself and your family before they occur. It's our job to provide the knowledge about how these products work with your overall investment portfolio and are built to flex with your changing environment.
A sound financial strategy starts with protection. A comfortable retirement, paying for college or saving for the future without protection from risks such as law suits, prolonged illness or premature death leaves a plan both vulnerable and incomplete. Our planning process will help to quantify the risks that you may be exposed to using objective tools and years of experience. Protection planning includes a full review of your estate planning documents such as Wills and Trusts, along with a comprehensive assessment of your insurance policies.
Together we will determine the right amount of insurance to own and the various types of insurance that might be suitable for your situation. While the insurance planning process can be aided with calculators that help to quantify the amount of insurance that one should have, we recognize that planning for the unexpected also involves incorporating personal values into the decision-making process. As such, we eschew general rules of thumb that are often promoted by unsophisticated media sources, instead creating customized strategies. Insurance is often the most misunderstood and under-used financial tool. Our experience and research have enabled us to develop strategies to help our clients both protect and growth their wealth using products that have stood the test of time.
