We work with a range of couples and individuals entering late adulthood, through a collaborative partnership that drives your financial planning and investment management strategy. A Complete View Financial client profile could look something like this:

  • You’re a couple who has been busy with your own professional lives and raising a family. You've split your duties and responsibilities but are now ready to plan for your next phase of life.
  • You and your partner aim to be on the same “financial page” and create your ideal retirement plan together.
  • You want to ensure that your spouse is cared for and that a continuity plan is in place, should anything happen to you.
  • You’re a diligent saver and have accumulated a retirement portfolio of at least $750,000.
  • You are ready to partner with a trusted advisor, and you understand that the transition to retirement is too important to be planning for retirement without the right financial experts on your side.
  • You understand and value the guidance an experienced financial planner can provide to your short and long-term financial approach.
  • You are the type of person that appreciates shared mutual respect and enjoys an authentic, yet kind approach to dealing with money matters.
