At Cambridge Wealth Management, we understand that your wealth presents uniquely complex situations. So, we offer an approach to wealth management that integrates both financial planning and asset management which we believe is the best way for you to achieve your vision.
We'll work closely with you and, if needed, your other professional advisors to select the services that best suits your needs, then apply our expertise to develop tailored solutions to grow, preserve, and manage your wealth.
There are six vital components to a comprehensive financial plan (infographic above). After an initial consultation, we’ll agree on the areas of your financial life that need reviewing. Our planning process can help you reach your goals by evaluating your whole financial picture, then outlining clear strategies that are tailored to your individual needs and resources.
A well-designed, properly implemented plan can help you:
Improve cash flow
Assess insurance needs
Decide how to invest
Plan for retirement
Create an estate plan
Cash Flow Management
This is the first step toward creating a sense of harmony in your financial life. We will assist you in developing a budget that helps you stay on track financially towards achieving your goals. To do this, we analyze your debts and other financial obligations. If there's a better solution and debt-restructuring is needed, we'll make objective recommendations.
We carefully review your personal income taxes and portfolio to help you manage your wealth in the most tax-efficient way. We consider your tax-deferred and taxable accounts and strategically place each security in the most tax-advantaged accounts. As a result of our diligent Asset Location Strategy, the impact of taxes is often reduced which can improve your after-tax investment returns.
When risk is measured and managed, it can have a positive impact on your financial life. Risk management is one of the six vital components of a financial plan. After reviewing your current policies and financial position, we will make recommendations that meet your unique needs.
We draw upon modern portfolio theory to ensure that your personalized investment strategy balances the right mix of investments to meet your unique goals. An independent registered investment advisor held to a fiduciary standard, our open architecture platform allows us to build dynamic, “conflict-free” investment portfolios for both growth and protection.
Retirement planning has two phases: accumulation and distribution. During the accumulation phase, we help clients in setting goals and implementing financial strategies to achieve them. Our retired clients in the distribution phase rely on our expert advice and solutions so they can continue to enjoy the lifestyle they’ve earned and not outlive their money.
You want to create a lasting legacy for the people and causes that you care about. We can help to ensure that your wealth passes as you want it to and a significant portion doesn't end up in the hands of unintended heirs or go to the government. To accomplish this, we will:
Suggest a review your existing wills, trusts and other estate planning documents
Recommend and coordinate estate, gift, and charitable strategies that maximize the benefits to your chosen heirs with your estate planning attorney
