How We Help

Investors Nearing Retirement

Approach Retirement With Confidence

With more questions than answers, Chris and Laurie wanted help with the transition from saving (during their working years) to spending (in retirement). They also expressed concern about how to slow down without becoming bored.

Their Concerns


Are we financially ready for our employment income to end?


How do we protect our savings from taxes during retirement?


What investments are best during this season of life?


Have we saved enough to leave an inheritance for our children and give to charity?

A Flexible Plan to Balance Retirement Goals

Many successful savers are less confident about how to spend down their nest egg. We helped position Chris and Laurie to fully enjoy retirement without worrying about running out of money.

Educated Chris and Laurie about the tradeoffs between part-time work and full retirement.

Analyzed various retirement options to identify the optimal age to claim social security.

Created a financial plan with enough flexibility for part-time work.

Developed strategies that integrate charitable giving, retirement account distributions, and potential Roth conversions to manage the tax bill amidst changing income during the gap years.

Harvested capital losses, allowing them to sell legacy investments at a gain, and donated some other investments without realizing capital gains.

Inspired Chris and Laurie to pursue some activities they value but weren’t sure they could afford.
