Financial Planning Services
At Shaun Roberts Associates, we work with individuals, families, executives, and business owners, many of whom are approaching or transitioning into retirement. These clients have worked hard to build their assets and they want to protect and preserve them through their retirement years. They have reached a phase when it’s critical for them to have a retirement strategy in place that will allow them to maintain their lifestyle and feel confident in their financial future.
As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, Shaun Roberts has the knowledge and training to offer comprehensive financial planning and asset management through a holistic process that focuses on both short and long term financial goals, as well as immediate and future needs.
Asset management involves creating an investment portfolio that produces an appropriate diversification based on the individual client’s needs and goals. Based on the client’s risk tolerance and financial objectives, we will create a unique strategy that seeks to help clients preserve their wealth. Professional asset management may provide investors access to investments they may not have otherwise, including a wide variety of traditional and alternative investment classes.
Implementing a variety of different strategies, the goal of financial planning is to help clients determine why they want to invest, how to manage their wealth strategies, and to plan for the future. We can help clients establish their goals, and evaluate their assets, liabilities, and current financial position. We can then implement a strategy aligned with the client’s financial objectives, from retirement income planning to tax strategies.
Typically, clients planning for retirement are less focused on taking risks and more focused on preserving their wealth and creating a consistent income stream that can last through retirement. With this in mind, we develop conservative strategies with a focus on risk management. We seek to identify opportunities for building a consistent income that will last through retirement and help clients determine when they may be able to retire. The retirement income planning process often includes analyzing income sources, managing assets, determining future expenses, and estate planning. Beyond developing a retirement plan, we can offer clients advice and education on Social Security (including how to claim and maximize their benefits), long-term care insurance, and other complex financial elements of retirement.
Many individuals want to leave a legacy for their family. As clients approach and live in retirement, we can assist with their estate planning needs, including offering insight and appropriate recommendations. Estate planning is critical for ensuring one’s wishes are carried out. Without a plan, the state will handle the assets according to probate laws and taxes can quickly add up. We can help clients identify how they want to pass on their assets, who will receive what, and when and how. Additionally, we can work with clients’ attorneys and other advisors to assist in ensuring an appropriate estate plan is in place.
Running a business isn’t easy. We assist small business owners with a number of services. For small business owners, proactive and strategic business planning may help avoid common pitfalls. From selecting employee retirement, benefit, and insurance plans to maximizing tax credits, we can help businesses with tax and financial planning services.
There are a number of different insurance options available and it can be confusing determining which policies are most appropriate for an individual and their family. We can help educate clients on insurance options, including life, disability, long-term care, and Medicare supplement insurance.
Tax Planning Strategies
It’s common for individuals and families to neglect tax planning until the final months leading up to the tax filing deadline. However, by implementing tax strategies throughout the year, individuals may be able to reduce the taxes they pay or avoid unnecessary taxes. We can help clients identify possible solutions and offers a variety of tax services.
