Your financial needs change over time, from accumulating wealth to planning for retirement to making your money last. One constant, however, is our ability to help you pursue your goals throughout your life. With the full spectrum of financial services we offer, we can help you plan for a wide range of needs and the significant events that span your lifetime.
As you approach retirement, we’ll assist you with critical decisions regarding retirement plan options, Social Security and tax planning. Then once you are retired, we will determine tax-efficient income and wealth transfer strategies designed to help you in retirement.
We take a tax-sensitive approach to financial planning and work with you and your other professional advisors – accountants, tax attorneys – to help minimize the impact of taxes. In addition to impacting your life today, prudent tax planning can play a large role in the amount of wealth you might be able to someday transfer to your heirs.
Please note: changes in tax laws or regulations may occur at any time and as financial advisors of Raymond James, we do not render advice on tax or legal matters. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.
Whether it’s providing income for a spouse, educating children or grandchildren or leaving money to your favorite charity, proper estate planning can help ensure that your assets accumulated over your lifetime are preserved for the use you have intended.
A well-designed estate plan can effectively help mitigate your family’s tax burden. We can offer financial strategies designed to efficiently manage the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next, and mitigate related tax issues.
Philanthropy can bring personal satisfaction, enabling you to support causes and organizations that matter most to you. It can result in significant tax advantages, as well – including income tax deductions, reduction of capital gains taxes, and lower estate taxes. We can help tailor a charitable giving plan for you that can include a charitable trust, donor advised fund, private family foundation, community foundation or outright gift.
Our objectives are to preserve your wealth, achieve a reasonable rate of return, and counter the erosive effects of inflation and taxes. We know that a proper asset allocation among cash, equity, fixed-income securities and alternative investments can be an effective way to pursue investment goals.
Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit nor protect against loss.
We can help you develop, implement and monitor a retirement or benefit plan that suits the needs of your business, as well as those of your employees. In addition, we can provide valuation analyses for businesses and ESOPs, as well as help you find appropriate insurance coverage for your company. For business owners seeking the most appropriate exit strategies, we can help you value your business, assess the tax implications and position your company for sale.
