Financial Planning & Advisory Services
First and foremost, our team of advisors at The JL Smith Group leads with the development of a financial plan, not blanket product selection or investment recommendations.
Based on decades of experience, we understand that the best financial plans are holistic in nature and incorporate all aspects of your financial life, including: investments, insurance, tax planning, Social Security strategies, Medicare and estate planning.
Throughout our comprehensive financial planning process, we help our clients identify and answer critical questions, such as:
- How do I avoid running out of money in retirement?
- How can I reduce the effects of market volatility on my retirement?
- How can I minimize the tax burden on my investments?
- How do I provide for my spouse or loved ones after my passing?
- How can I fund my grandchild’s college, a gift to charity and similar?
Often times, financial professionals operate in silos without a full picture of your financial needs, goals and resources. By taking the holistic approach, we look at all angles and are able to analyze and advise on your entire financial situation.
Our knowledgeable financial advisors will analyze your accounts and make adjustments based on economic conditions, inflation and interest rates. This way, we can help maximize income throughout retirement by also controlling taxes, fees and risk in our recommendations.
Finally, as part of that financial plan, we make a commitment to put the needs of the client first. In addition, our commitment to our clients includes disclosing how we will be compensated for our financial advisory services.
