Before buying, come in to find out for yourself.

We focus on helping our clients attain higher rates of interest on their retirement savings. For example, fixed indexed annuities provide the potential to earn interest based in part on the performance of various market indices. More importantly, the annuities we recommend protect your account value from market declines.

Our focus on protecting hard earned savings from loss is a priority. Our benchmark is recommending products which we would use for our own family’s retirement planning.”

Retirement Planning


Single Purpose Planning

Meeting 1
Are you considering using our services? We make it easy for you to test drive us. There is no cost to meet with us regardless of how often we meet. We won’t be disappointed if you decide not to do business with us.

We are eager to win you over, not just based on service, but based on watching the bottom line. This is where several generations of planning experience will serve you well.

We are not intimidated by other advisers and are happy to work with them or compete with them for your business. In fact, we will happily give you a no obligation second opinion to help you evaluate a new plan or the one you currently have. It keeps everyone on their toes.


Multiple Purpose Planning / Comprehensive Planning


In many cases, our established clients initially came to us seeking better performance with money they wanted to have at lower risk. Then, over time they continued to gravitate to us because we competed well based on results.
Healthy competition on results is good for a portfolio. I am a firm believer that before personally using risky investments, I find out first what I can attain with lower risk choices. Without taking that crucial step, I may be assuming unnecessary risk and missing out on the solid returns.

We work well with customers who want to be highly involved in following their money, as well as those customers who want to be sure they have professionals they can trust handling their funds.
