It wasn’t so long ago that retirement meant a pension and a gold watch, but today’s world looks much different than it did for past generations. With increased market volatility and historically low interest rates, generating retirement income has become more complex. Additionally, with the loss of pensions and the rising cost of health care, the burden of retirement falls heavier on the shoulders of individual Americans than it ever has before. But you don’t have to carry it alone.
The New Generation Retirement® system is a holistic approach to retirement planning. It consists of five steps that incorporate three hallmarks of our company: fiduciary, transparency and technology. Through this planning process, you’ll be confident that we’ve given careful consideration to asset allocation and risk, income planning, asset maximization, legacy planning and tax strategies.
