A Message From Our Founder

I entered this profession in 2003 so that I could help individuals and families work to attain—and then maintain—their target lifestyle. The challenges to assisting my clients in this task are plentiful, most notably because everyone has a different set of circumstances, values, and goals, each of which may themselves be changing over time.

However, the principles that allow us to make important life decisions—and then take action toward their attainment—rarely change. Any improvement in my ability to assist clients will therefore pertain not to a reformulating of the basic framework which applies to each of us, but to the way in which I am able to communicate such principles, to connect them to the issues at hand, and to encourage and support a course of action that is aligned with the values and goals that motivated the process from the beginning.

It is with this perspective that I commit myself, and my company.

- Matthew Clement, CFP®, AIF®

A Focus on Retirement:

With retirees living longer, more active lives, it’s essential for your retirement plan to work for you, helping you enjoy the life you’ve envisioned while also mitigating risk that could make your resources vulnerable. We help pre-retirees and retirees overcome the challenges of such a profound lifestyle change.

Working together, we talk about what you need and want your money to do for you and assess the likelihood that you’ll be able to achieve these goals. If you have to make trade-offs, we help you prioritize based on what’s most important to YOU and demonstrating you how small changes might make a big impact over time. We also talk about the things that concern you, and strategies that can help alleviate those concerns. As your lifestyle changes, we update your financial plan to keep you moving in the direction you want to go.

We also strive to ensure that your wealth passes in the most efficient way to your heirs and philanthropic endeavors through estate and legacy planning. With our help, you have a full range of resources at your disposal.
