Financial Planning and Investment Management – Are you properly diversified to reduce risk?

Our team of Financial Advisers will help you create, implement and maintain an investment strategy that best meets your lifetime financial goals. We will ensure your portfolio matches your tolerance and risk while protecting against taxes and inflation. We are completely transparent with our fees and can help you uncover hidden fees and commissions you have paid brokers in the past.

Estate Planning – Do you need a living trust or is a will sufficient?

Our Estate Planning attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of both local and federal law to make sound estate planning decisions. You worked hard to build your wealth – leaving a legacy for your family shouldn’t be complicated and we are here to help you simplify the process. We will ensure you use trusts and family limited partnerships when applicable to protect your assets and reduce taxes. We will ensure your medical directives and financial powers of attorney are up to date. We will aid in selecting the titling your assets to properly fund the trust and prevent a tedious and costly probate process.

Insurance Needs – Do you know if you have the right amount and right kind of insurance?

Let us provide an independent review to assure you have the proper amount of protection. Our insurance expert has 40 years of experience in insurance and financial planning and is determined to help you identify your insurance needs.

Retirement Planning – Do you know if you have enough money to retire when you want to?

From handling a retirement lump sum rollover distribution to stretching your unused IRA distributions for your children and grandchildren, we can help you in retirement. We work with clients to improve budgeting and cash flow to safeguard against retirement money running out.

Employee Benefits – Are you investing in your company 401(k) plan?

From selecting the best 401(k) investment options, to helping you determine your ideal contribution amount, we are here to help you make the most of your employee benefits. This includes walking you through the process of exercising company stock options as well as helping you determine whether you are able to survive on your disability income benefits.

Asset Preservation – Should you sell your home or convert it to a rental property?

We are one of few financial firms with experience in successfully structuring a 1031 Exchange. These programs allow investors to defer the payment of capital gains taxes that may arise from the sale of a business or investment property. By using the process of the sale to purchase “like-kind” real estate, taxes may be deferred, as long as the investor satisfies certain conditions. We have had great success in working within these confines and identifying replacement properties for investors. We can also help you convert your primary residence to a rental property or determine if it is a better option to sell your home.

College Planning – Will you be financially ready to send your child to college?

Acorn can help you determine the best ways to finance the gap between the cost of attending college and your Expected Family Contribution. We will walk you through the process of vetting colleges that provide financial assistance to high-income families and help you execute tax strategies that help pay for college.
