We serve individuals and businesses in all areas of investment planning, including:
Retirement planning - We help you make the most of your employer-sponsored retirement plans and IRAs. We’ll determine how much you need to retire comfortably, using our Envision program. The Envision process helps you plan for life events like college, marriage and retirement, for dreams and major purchases like a second home as well as future needs like health care. We serve our clients by helping them manage assets before and during retirement years.
Tax management* - We help make sure your portfolio is tax-efficient. We develop tax saving investment strategies that are tailored to your individual needs. Committed to a comprehensive approach, we work hand in hand with your qualified tax specialists to provide the most accurate guidance possible.
Estate planning* - We work with our estate-planning and trust contacts to review your wills and trusts to ensure we are preserving your estate for your intended heirs. Your needs and the needs of your family change over time, and as a result, your estate plan needs to be flexible and periodically reviewed. We will also assist with beneficiary designations; reduce potential exposure to estate taxes and probate costs; and coordinate with your tax and legal advisors.
Education funding – We recommend investment and accumulation strategies to help you pay for your children's education. To get ahead, your money has to grow faster than the cost of college—and when it comes to education funding, time really is money. We’ll help you select from multiple strategies like 529 plans, education savings accounts, and custodial accounts.
Risk management - We review all existing insurance policies, and when suitable, provide recommendations to make the overall investment planning more complete. We know that each person’s situation is very unique, which is why we take this proactive approach to risk management.
Investments – We determine your overall investment needs and help you understand the importance of risk tolerance, diversification and time horizon. We’ll recommend the appropriate investment vehicles to help you achieve your financial goals. Wachovia Securities offers a broad range of types of investments, giving us the freedom to build a comprehensive portfolio based on your needs and stage of life.
