How do I know if I need professional assistance with my financial affairs?
The Internet and media makes financial information much more readily available today. The downside is determining which information is accurate and which information is right for your situation. In addition, turbulent market conditions, complex income tax and estate planning laws, retirement rules and regulations, along with the overall challenge of managing your money, can make it too much to handle alone. There is tremendous value in working with a professional who can readily inform you of all the strategies, complex products and tax laws that apply to your individual situation. This saves time and helps drastically minimize decisions that can lead to ineffective results.
What does Morgan Kenwood see as predominant challenges facing today’s investors?
Most investors still manage their portfolios without a financial plan as a guide. This leads to choosing investments that may not be compatible with their long term goals. There should be little surprise that this method usually results in a dissatisfied consumer. Imagine being hired for a new job outside of your experience and being told no training or education would be provided or available. When managing their portfolio without a plan, most people are in that very position. This can be corrected with guidance from our experienced planners.
Identifying a reputable and qualified adviser. Investors should be able to trust a professional, with not only their financial information, but with their personal dreams and goals. This is why we have developed a clear process of specific steps to help you create a financial plan designed to be successful.
Understanding how to make retirement assets last once retirement is achieved. Investors spend all their working years accumulating assets so they can retire. Longer life expectancies result in longer retirement periods. This requires a totally different approach to investing during retirement which few advisors and even fewer consumers are familiar with.
