Develop a strategy that tells your story – a story designed to care for the people you love. A story that uses your income and assets to create a legacy. A story that, when it comes to life, has the potential to maximize your happiness.FIND AN ADVISOR
In building your wealth strategy, our role is to help you uncover and craft your story, empathetically coach you to success and address any challenges that could get in your way.
From family dynamics to an obscure tax system and an abundance of investment opportunities, wealth can result in complexity. We want to make matters simple.
Let us help you use your wealth in a way that aligns with your values and beliefs while balancing family integration and independence.
Our advisors will work with you to design a plan to achieve your financial independence goals by:
- Capturing what makes you happy
- Determining when you want to stop working
- Building a savings, spending and investing plan to provide you sufficient assets to meet your goals
- Coaching you on the behaviors necessary to allow the plan to succeed
If you have more assets and income than you need in your lifetime, you may have substantial assets remaining when you die. We will work with you to ensure your plan includes the story you want these assets to tell.
- Who do you want to provide for?
- How, based on your values and beliefs, do you want to provide for them?
- Who makes which decisions after you are gone?
- How can you minimize taxation (both transfer taxes and income taxes)?

A great estate plan should tell your story — the story you want told if you’re not around to tell it. Your story communicates who you care about, what you care about and what you believe. It is unique to you. Key questions to consider:
- What do you believe in?
- Who do you want to take care of?
- How do you want decisions made?
- How does my estate plan fit with my overall financial plan?
Family Wealth Planning
If your financial plan indicates that you have more than necessary for a lifetime of financial independence, your wealth can be used now to create your legacy (what you want for your family) and social impact (what you want for charitable causes). A legacy plan should address several key questions:
- Based on how you built your wealth and your personal values and beliefs, how should your legacy assets be used?
- Who should benefit from the legacy assets and when?
- How do you ensure that the wealth is used only by the people you care about (and not creditors, predators and divorcing spouses)?

Double Tops in Mountain Biking and the Market
Before the development of carbon fiber, shocked forks and fat tires, I was a mountain biker, at least the version of that you can be in the Midwest. Last week, the S&P 500 Index revisited and slightly exceeded the all-time high reached in February. Market technicians call that a “double-top.” An often referred to market chart pattern that can be an ominous precursor to future returns, or not.READ MORE about our latest investment commentary by Brian Andrew.
