We take the time to listen to your needs and formulate a plan to take you from the accumulation phase of your life to the distribution phase. According to one study, 43% of people in America aren’t afraid of being bored, unable to travel, or dying in retirement—their #1 fear is outliving their money. ¹
That number jumps to 60% when you look at Baby Boomers. These fears, according to the data, are justified: People in their 50s have only saved an average of $117,000 for retirement. Experts say a “healthy” retirement savings account would have something like six times a person’s current salary. ¹ This disparity, to say the least, is striking.

Insurance is a term people often use but not one they always understand. For customers, insurance companies offer a contract (known as a policy) whereby an individual or corporation receives a promise of reimbursement against possible losses in exchange for a premium. Insurance companies pool risk this way; that means that, in the event an insurance company has to pay out a claim, the company is still bringing in revenue. ¹
There are several types of insurance. Some of them—like life insurance—are straightforward. Yet, even in life insurance, there are many things to consider, like term vs. whole life. Other types of insurance, such as fixed indexed annuity contracts, might require even more explanation. You can buy insurance for your car, home, boat, or business. You can also buy insurance for things like needing long-term care in retirement, liability insurance for your business, disability insurance for your profession, and Medicare gap coverage.
People often talk about insurance as “protection,” but it’s really a form of risk mitigation. It ensures that, no matter what twists and turns come with life, clients don’t face their risks flat-footed. Nothing can protect you from risk. However, with a thoughtful, proactive, and detailed insurance plan (as part of a comprehensive financial plan), you may find yourself with more options than you would have had without insurance.
