The price of $5000 -$7000 to do a living trust was more than we could afford. After seeing an ad for McAdams group on FB and scheduled a call. I am so glad I did. Not only was the price for setting up a revocable trust affordable but working with Michael Simpson was a pleasure. He was easy to work with and very professional. Setting it up was easy but more involved than I anticipated but he made himself available throughout the process. We especially appreciate how he explained everything in detail and encouraged us to ask questions I feel much better knowing that I have finally taken care of this important document.

Our Combined 70 Years of Experience Will Help You Achieve a Lifetime of Financial Stability

Retirement Financial Planning

Factors such as inflation, taxes, and interest rates are often considered last when planning for retirement. As your retirement financial advisors, we provide you with a plan that analyzes all these factors first in relation to your post-work goals.

Estate Planning

Determining how to distribute the wealth you have accumulated and preserved gives you peace of mind as you reach your golden years. Enlist the aid of our highly trained advisors to help ensure meticulous planning for your money and other assets.

Tax Planning

You should know about the taxable portion of your Social Security and related retirement income tax liabilities. Your financial education should go as far as helping you reduce your tax burden. We are well-equipped to help you do so before you file your taxes.

Fiduciary Financial Advisor

Choosing a financial advisor to help you plan and save for retirement is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. It is essential to find an advisor whose strategies are aligned with your needs. Another good idea when you’re looking for an advisor is to find one who is a fiduciary.

Investment Management

Our advisors will work with you to help provide the guidance and advice you need for strong long-term investment performance. We will help you create a strategy based on your specific goals and needs, with individualized help every step of the way.

Rollover IRA

When it comes to growing your money over the long term, studies have shown that tax advantage is a major benefit, which is why tax-advantaged Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and 401(k)s are so popular. But one of the most important aspects of owning an IRA or 401(k) is knowing the best ways to approach taking income or withdrawals from those accounts.

We Follow Our 7-Step Educational Process to Help You Achieve Your Financial Goals

Our first priority is helping you take care of yourself and your family. We want to learn more about your personal situation, identify your dreams and goals, and understand your risk tolerance. Long-term relationships that encourage open and honest communication have been the foundation of our success.

  1. Identify Lifetime Objectives & Strategies
    We don’t believe in a “cookie-cutter” approach. No two situations are alike. We tailor your financial strategies to assist you in achieving your specific lifetime goals and objectives.
  2. Determine Your Risk Profile
    How much of your money should be in the stock market? How much should be in more conservative investments? We believe in staying within your comfort zone rather than chasing short-term market returns.
  3. Understand All of Your Options
    Some advisors are not willing to spend the time to educate you. We believe an informed client is a good client. We believe peace of mind may come from understanding all your options.
  4. Build Your Portfolio
    Your personal preferences as well as your cash flow needs are some of the factors that determine your investment allocation. In building your model, we educate you about today’s more conservative income-generating investments, so you can make informed decisions.
  5. Optimize Your Investment Allocations
    If desired, we will help you allocate the equity portion of your investments in conjunction with modern portfolio theory and mean-variance optimization.
  6. Identify Tax Reduction and Asset Preservation Strategies
    Once your investment allocation is completed, we help coordinate your affairs. Our focus is on minimizing income taxes and future death taxes as well as helping to potentially protect you and your assets from healthcare expenses.
  7. Schedule Regular Reviews
    Last but certainly not least, we believe regular reviews will help you stay the course. Our firm’s success comes largely from our emphasis on client service. We strive to contact each of our clients at least four times a year.

We tailor our financial strategies to your individual needs and goals.
