Tax-efficient investing & wealth planning

For many of our clients, tax is their biggest annual expense. If you want to increase the rate at which your wealth compounds and have more money in retirement, you need to address the issue of tax in your wealth plan and investment portfolio.

We can advise you on various types of tax-planning strategies for individuals and corporations, such as:

1. Accumulation strategies to help compound your wealth faster pre-retirement.

2. Decumulation strategies to help increase your after-tax cash flow in retirement.

3. Preservation strategies to help protect your wealth from unecessary taxation.

4. Distribution strategies to help transfer more of your wealth to your heirs.

Pension model investing

If our client portfolios look different from the average portfolio, it’s not by accident. Like many institutional investors, we believe a diversified, risk-conscious portfolio model offers the best balance of risk and return for most investors.

Primary benefits of a pension model portfolio

1.  The potential for better more consistent returns.

2.  The possibility of enhanced diversification.

3.  The potential for less risk and volatility.

4.  The possibility of more income and security during retirement.
