Retirement Planning

When you retire, you’ll want to enjoy your wealth without worry, knowing that your wealth will last for your lifetime. We work with you to create a retirement plan that takes into account the lifestyle that you want for your retirement as wells as future needs and sources of income. In addition, we will optimize your retirement plan by maximizing tax efficiency, managing risk, recommending sources of supplementary income, and counseling you on complicated issues such as retiring abroad.

Tax Planning

Often, the more you make, the more you pay in taxes. Our team helps you decrease your tax liabilities and keep more of what you’ve earned with strategies such as trusts, endowments, business restructuring, estate freezes, and/or the use of tax-advantaged investments structures.


Insurance can be a vital part in helping you achieve your financial goals. We explore the ways in which insurance can benefit you, including in the areas of protecting your family and business, planning the succession of your business, offsetting estate taxes, tax-sheltering investments, and supplementary retirement income.
