Comprehensive Financial Planning
We start by listening to you and learning about you. Your story and “Whys” are personal and important. We do an exhaustive fact finding on both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of your life. From here, we begin to build your personalized plan. Taking the cue on your wants and needs, we create forward looking models and test them for reality and sufficiency. Once we have the strategies identified and agreed upon, we have the PLAN steer the Investment Policy.
As time goes on, we go forward together and evolve as needed to serve you.
We have a 3 step process:
- Educate and cultivate a plan with you before updating an existing estate plan or generating the first.
- Physically attend the meetings with you and the estate planning attorney to begin the process of executing an estate plan.
- After the appropriate documents have been executed, we complete the important tasks of retitling assets, updating beneficiary arrangements, updating detailed balance sheets, etc.
Depending on the complexity of your personal, professional, business, and financial life, all of this can be quite simple or complex.
Business Succession Planning
Whether you want to sell your business, transfer it to the next generation, retire or explore the possibilities, we can help model and implement various strategies. In addition to KA, our relationships include specialists in tax law, tax planning, performance coaching, investment banking, and capital markets and operations. Our goal is to be proactive and to have the strategy and team in place long before the “transaction”. In addition, we understand that the sale or succession of a business is very personal. We are sensitive and address these qualitative factors and NEED to understand your values, goals, legacy, and footprints. We have a deep bench to help you here as well.
Philanthropic & Legacy Visioning
Oftentimes in selling business assets, the possibility of utilizing Charitable Trusts and similar tools is unknown or overlooked. Business owners are underserved in this capacity. When implementing a charitable succession plan correctly, in balance with other assets and context of your total plan, the theme is to show you how to:
- Keep more.
- Spend more.
- Pass on more.
- Endow your Causes.
The key is planning, design, clarity and balance… and a team with specialized backgrounds and experience
