Please contact us for help determining when it may be appropriate for you to start taking social security benefits and to explore strategies for maximizing benefits for married couples.
We’ve been told we manage money differently than others—a much more personal connection with our clients and their hopes, dreams, concerns, and unique interests. We’ve seen a rise of interest and participation in philanthropic strategy over the past 5 years, much of it driven by the wealth created in the technology sector. A real philanthropic strategy is so accessible to younger investors now, not just the retired. We enjoy helping our clients identify areas of interest and working with them to make an impact with their giving—and in a more tax efficient way for them.
If you see a topic here that you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact us anytime. We would value the opportunity to speak with you and answer any questions you may have.
