Bringing Clarity to Complex Situations

About Wealth Management Solutions, LLC

Retirement or 401k Rollover? You and I may have already met. After engaging with Fortune 500 companies and their employees to provide education and advice on their retirement plans, I have had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of clients across the country and assist them with their financial goals. Because I have been invited to review and advise on investments for many employers and their employees, there is a breadth of knowledge that many younger advisors and investment salesmen do not have. The nearly 20 years of experience you see to the right of this paragraph --> ensures that you are working with a partner who has helped clients through some of the toughest markets and financial strains encountered in generations.

We maintain a select number of client and family relationships, and get to know your situation inside and out. I will help you maximize your wealth by making the most of your company benefits (401(k) plan, restricted stock, stock options, deferred compensation plans), by managing investments, through income tax planning, estate and gift planning, and when income is needed: by turning your investments into a reliable income stream. You can be confident in the advice we give, as we will gladly put it in writing. As a client, you will receive detailed follow up emails after our meetings so we can ensure there is no question as to what we recommended, and why. Our meetings are never just a review of your most recent statement.

Additional Details on Charges

We work on a fee-only basis which means we can only be compensated by our clients - we do not receive financial incentives from any third party such as brokerage firms, investment companies, or insurance companies.

This is our only method of compensation and it is the same way you compensate other professionals you depend on for specialized knowledge and services, for example your doctor, CPA or attorney. Paying your advisor directly eliminates several potential conflicts of interest because our advice is not impacted by the interests of third parties.
