At Insight Investment Advisory, we understand and have experienced firsthand the challenges of running a business, balancing work and family, planning for the future and navigating unexpected obstacles. We bring this perspective and experience to bear in working with our clients to plan and chart a course toward their goals in both their personal and professional lives.
We can provide a detailed financial roadmap or simply assist with certain elements of your financial planning, depending on where you are in life and how we can meet your needs. Our financial planning services are technology-enabled, and some of the key areas that we assist clients in are as follows:
> Retirement planning, including:
Establishing life goals and priorities with realistic targets
Performing lifetime simulations and scenario modeling
Providing investment advice and monitoring of employer-sponsored retirement plans, such as 401(k)s
> Reviewing investment portfolio allocations with a goal of achieving the right balance of risk and return
> Planning for education spending, including college and private school – we can help you set up, invest and maintain 529 plans and other educational savings tools
> Philanthropic planning and charitable giving, including charitable remainder trusts and donor advised funds
> Planning for business owners – diversification strategies, capital raising, exit/succession planning
> Estate and legacy planning – we work with your estate attorney to review/establish wills, trusts, etc. to preserve wealth and prepare for a private, tax-efficient transfer of your estate to your intended heirs
Insight Investment Advisory follows a methodical, multi-stage financial planning process. We begin with an extensive phase of information and document gathering, followed by evaluation and analysis. A report outlines several scenarios and their related assumptions, using a Monte Carlo simulation to determine probability of outcomes. Thereafter, we monitor progress toward established goals and keep up an ongoing dialogue with the client to ensure that our clients’ plans are current and optimized. We provide quarterly portfolio reporting, a client portal where clients can view their financial plan and offer in person meetings on a quarterly basis or more frequently as requested by the client.
We pride ourselves on understanding our clients well and often serve more than one generation in a family. As fiduciary advisors, we are legally obligated to put our clients’ interests first, but we cannot do so effectively without truly knowing our clients, understanding their unique goals and circumstances, and building a trust-based relationship. We are available to our clients at all times as new opportunities and challenges inevitably arise, and we take a partnership approach in working with them.
