Not so long ago, individuals concerned about their financial futures were often overwhelmed with a disparate range of investment options and independent strategies.
Today, however, the more measured concept of “wealth management” allows a single firm to assist individuals, couples and families in formulating a comprehensive strategy that encompasses the full spectrum of financial life stages.
ZWM specializes in comprehensive and objective fee-only financial planning, addressing:
- Investment planning and implementation: This is the main emphasis of our operations and our focus with our clients. It’s the cornerstone of all other services.
- Financial independence planning/retirement planning: We help determine how much money you need to retire tomorrow or start a business you’ve always dreamed about.
- Risk analysis and risk management (insurance planning): We’ll analyze your insurance needs and work with your insurance professional to implement the best plan for you.
- Estate planning strategy and overview: We will work with you and your attorney to create wills and trusts that best suit your wealth transfer needs and implement family and charitable gifting programs.
- Tax planning: We can assist with tax planning by optimizing the taxation of your investments.
- Charitable giving: We help assess your options for charitable gifting. We have helped many clients establish and operate family foundations.
- Family asset preservation/family wealth planning: ZWM can assist you by providing a roadmap to address multi-generational education and planning issues.
