Comprehensive Wealth Planning
Our wealth planning philosophy is built around getting to know our clients on a deeper level. We will explore a number of topics according to your mindset and habits regarding money, saving, investing, and your overall satisfaction in life before any financial planning advice is given. It’s necessary that we have a solid understanding of what is truly important to you during our planning relationship.
Although you may have the means to reach any goal you set, developing values-based goals helps build “true wealth” that consists of both financial knowledge and emotional intelligence. During our process, we will discover the motivations and emotional drivers behind your values so we can assist you in living a meaningful and purposeful life.
Cash Flows & Budgeting
The cornerstone of any financial plan is your cash flow. By developing a plan that helps you produce consistent monthly income, know when to take distributions or bonuses, and manage your debts, savings, and day-to-day expenses, you’re on your way to achieving true financial freedom.
Part of your financial plan will involve analyzing your debts to ensure those obligations are met while also keeping in mind your short-term needs and long-term goals.
We specialize in assisting our clients with tax efficiency to tackle the ever-changing tax landscape, especially when it comes to your business. Tax inefficiencies can significantly reduce your disposable and retirement income, so we place a high priority on tax strategies.
We believe developing your asset allocation and finding low-cost investments are the most important part of your investment management strategy. We also believe in diversification to meet longer horizon goals, and that timing or trying to beat the market can be devastating in the long run.
Planning for your retirement is one of the main reasons people hire an advisor, but much like our tax environment, retirement planning is ever-changing. As a business owner, you are responsible for creating and funding your own retirement plan, which is complex and requires you to make many decisions from a wealth of options. A plan that is adaptable and includes varying components of Roth, traditional, and other assets is key for a sustainable nest egg.
We will review your wills, trusts, and medical directives to ensure they align with the goals and objectives we discuss. Having a solid estate plan is essential to make sure your assets pass to your inheritors in the way you want with the least amount of tax impact possible.
We help you fully review all employee benefits, life insurance, disability insurance, long-term care, as well as your home, auto, and umbrella policies to make certain you’re protected if any catastrophic and unforeseen circumstance arises.
Planning for Business Owners
Aligning the interests of the business with those of the business owner should be at the forefront of any business planning. Your personal values and goals should be evident in the way you run your business. With these thoughts in mind, we will develop a plan that looks at:
- Cash flows and owner compensation
- Asset and investment diversification
- Owner and employee benefits
- Business financing and debt
- Retirement plans
- Liquidity needs
- Identifying key employees and retention strategies
- Proper succession planning
Financial planning and investment management go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other. At Envision Wealth Planners, our investment management philosophy is driven by your unique and holistic financial plan, as your investments should mirror your values and goals.
We provide a variety of investment management options tailored to your specific needs. We do not believe in market-timing or trying to beat the market. We do believe that well-designed, diversified portfolios built for longer time horizons will fill the needs of our clients. Diversification is a key factor because we never know which parts of the market or the world will be rising when others are falling.
Risk is inherent in any investment strategy. We develop our portfolios to help combat the short-term risk of market volatility while keeping in mind the long-term risks of rising prices (inflation) and mortality (outliving your money).
We utilize a mix of low-cost passive and active investing strategies to help our clients achieve returns that are consistent with their risk tolerance and overall financial plan. We help and advise our clients on a myriad of investment topics so you’re prepared when opportunities arise. If you discover investments that suit your needs and goals, we will be prepared to discuss those opportunities and determine if they are the right fit.
