Products and Services
We are able to provide the following products and services:
Regular Brokerage- For those not needing regular and periodic portfolio changes a simple brokerage account may be the least costly solution. We can offer a wide choice of custodians from which to choose. A transaction fee applies only when something is bought or sold in the account.
Advisory Accounts- Generally these are our most popular offerings which offers regular account monitoring and periodic portfolio modifications and rebalancing to reflect changes in the markets. A competitive monthly or quarterly advisory fee based on the assets under management will apply, regardless of the number or frequency of changes made to the account. A number of custodians are available for our clients.
401K and Defined Benefit Plans- Whether for "solo" solutions up to larger businesses with many employees, we can offer retirement plan solutions that help business principals and their employees save for retirement and contribute to employee retention and loyalty.
Variable Annuities- We can offer variable annuities (along with non-variable fixed types as well) for those clients wanting a long term retirement solution that provides a guarantee provided by the offering company. We will explain all aspects of these often complicated strategies for the client before they invest.
Note: Guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the insurance company. Withdrawals of earnings are subject to ordinary income tax and prior to age 59½ may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.
