Insurance Planning

We work hard to take the guess work out of insurance planning. We start by looking for gaps in your current coverage or where you may have too much coverage. We create hybrid insurance models and look for alternative funding options. Our strategies range from providing a plan for your family to providing a plan for your business.

New Year, New Decade, New Goals!

As of late I have found myself in the middle of many conversations where the topic of financial literacy arises, and the lack of awareness that exist around budgeting and credit, savings and investing, and insurance planning.  As a kick-off to a new decade, “Back to Basics: Financial Planning” seems like an appropriate place to start [More]

The Call

“911 what’s your Emergency?” Many of us dread having to make the call for a loved one who is struggling for their last breath.  It could be for a spouse, parent, grandparent or god-forbid, a child.  Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, even when it’s expected, it’s unexpected.

Wedding Bells

Congratulations, you just got engaged and plan to tie the knot! As you plan your fairy tale wedding, fantasize about your dream home and your adventures together.

October 26th, 2018: The Day I Quit

October 26th, this day one year ago I decided to quit my job and hop on a flight, half way across the world to India.  I remember the emotions I had when I emailed my resignation to my boss at 9:00 AM on my way to the airport, stopped at the traffic light, outside of my office that I came to every day to for a few years.  I was scared, excited, nervous, a jolt of adrenaline was running through me all at the same time as I hit the send button.  My heart was racing, my phone rang - it was my boss. Ex-boss as of five minutes ago. [More...]

*An annuity is a contract between an investor and an insurance company purchased by the investor through either a single payment or a series of payments. Annuities can be either immediate, meaning that income and return of principal begin to be paid immediately, or deferred, whereby assets accumulate tax-free until withdrawals are made. There are two types of deferred annuities, fixed and variable. Fixed annuities guarantee an interest rate for a period of time, generally 1–10 years, and some contracts offer guaranteed minimum rates of return for the life of the contract. Fixed annuities are not subject to fluctuation in value as are variable annuities. Both principal and interest earned are backed by the financial strength of the issuing insurance company. Variable annuities are offered only by prospectus.  Carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of variable annuities before investing.  This and other information is contained in each fund’s prospectus, which can be obtained from your investment professional and should be read carefully before investing.  Guarantees are based upon the claims paying ability of the issuer. It is possible to experience a loss on your investment in a variable annuity. Guarantees provided by annuities are subject to the financial strength of the issuing company and not guaranteed by any bank or the FDIC. Additional information about annuities is available at: https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/varannty.htm
