Seasons of Advice focuses on the following four seasons: Goal Tracking Season - We examine your progress, re-evaluate assumptions and possibly re-set goals and priorities for the year. Asset Allocation Season -Incorporating the criteria established in the goal tracking we examine risk tolerance, investment time frame and create an investment strategy for the next twelve months. Family, Security and Cash Flow Review Season- Cash flow is revisited and there is a complete review of estate planning strategies, beneficiary designations and employee benefits, including the annual insurance reviews. Tax Planning Season - We evaluate your investments and provide tax-wise recommendations, plus we can coordinate with your accountant to help you make informed decisions about your investments during the next tax season.
