Our Effective Financial Tools

To achieve our clients’ financial goals, we utilize effective and innovative tools to help you make the most optimum strategic decisions about your tax planning and investments.

These include:

THE ASSET SHEET QUESTIONNAIRE to help obtain a thorough understanding of your financial situation.

THE INCOME GAP ASSESSMENT  to determine if there will be a retirement income deficit or excess in your life. We can then calculate how much money you will need for day-to-day retirement and where that money will come from.

THE VOLATILITY TOLERANCE ANALYSIS is used to determine your attitude about risk and volatility in the “soon” and “later” time frames. We can then create a customized Bucket Plan that stays within your comfort zone while helping you reach your long-term growth goals.

THE BUCKET PLAN® SCORECARD is used to help pinpoint any areas of your financial plan that need improvement today.  We then utilize that information to make any necessary plan adjustments.
