High Net Worth Tax

Goals and dreams are reshaped through wealth, from a focus on accumulation to a focus on sustainability and legacy.

When your assets are large, managing those assets through solid investments, tax-friendly savings vehicles and timed distributions become a daily business. Your list of advisors grows, which is why you need a collaborative approach on your estate today and what it will become tomorrow.

Paying attention to the details is critical, as is the right strategy brought to you in a timely manner. Your time is valuable, and your advisory services should make the best use of it.

You may have questions about investment diversification, stock valuation or the most appropriate trust for passing on your wealth. If you hold real estate interests or want to grow them, identifying the pros and cons of a certain investment must be considered before adding it to your portfolio. Taxation is an ever-present concern, and philanthropic requests and community reinvestment options become daunting without help.

I don’t try to give clients specific, one choice answers. It’s their life; their experience. They have a lot of expertise in this area. It’s our role to supplement, not replace the expertise.
