Financial Planning

This is where it all begins.

At Sequoia we assess where our clients are today and through hands-on engagement we determine where you want to be in 5, 10, 20 or more years.

Regarding your current financial situation, we are aware that many of you have unanswered questions. Some concerns our clients have expressed are:

  • What about my student loans? How can I pay them off? Are we ready to buy our first home?
  • What is the best way to save for our children's college expenses?
  • Do I need life insurance and if so, how much?
  • What about Social Security and Medicare? How do they work?
  • Will I have enough money to keep my lifestyle? Will I have enough to meet the future cost of living and not deplete my assets?
  • How will I cope with unexpected medical expenses such as a long-term care illness? What about other unforeseen events?
  • How does my pension and employer benefits fit into the picture?

The role we all play in planning services is to bring the human touch to the table. Financial Planning brings clarity to our lives and helps us get "all the way home"

Investment Management

Investment management can seem complicated in our noisy world. We want to manage our savings and investments but often it's hard to know where to start. At Sequoia, we start at the beginning. We are many and varied and no two families have the exact same needs or goals We meet you at the level of your need.

We talk about your past investment experiences. What do you feel was successful and where do think you need to make improvements?

 All investments play a role in your family and we consider investment constraints such as time horizon, liquidity, taxes. When will I need the money? What about investment loss? We complete the investment evaluation process with a comprehensive review of the current portfolio to determine the risk, time horizon, taxation, and how they fit together. Questions you may be wondering are "Am I getting a reasonable rate of return?" "What is my asset allocation?"

Investment planning helps you to create a plan you understand and experience peace of mind that you are on the right track.
