“Financial assets aren’t just number on paper – They allow you to feel secure, to handle a family emergency, to send a child to college, and to retire comfortably.”
Edgar works with his clients to develop a financial model that takes all their needs – current and future – into account from a “Macro” approach. He looks at all the possibilities before making any recommendations and identifies the most cost-effective approach to building financial wealth and security.
With yearly tax law changes, stock market volatility, interest rate fluctuations, and real estate uncertainty, it is nearly impossible for the common individual to comprehend these constant changes. The erosion of our wealth by inflation and taxation could leave many people without enough money to retire in their current lifestyle. With ever-increasing life expectancies in our country, the potential exists to outlive our wealth.
