Wealth Management. You have goals for your future; probably more than one. They might be about the lifestyle you hope to lead in retirement. Or a child's education. There might be a charitable cause you hope to support more fully, or a hobby you've yearned to pursue. Or perhaps you're just not quite able to articulate your goal. But we bet you have one, nevertheless. Understanding what's really important to you is at the heart of how we'll begin to build the kind of relationship you expect. Step by step, in a way that is very personal, very open and very focused on your hopes and dreams and goals. Wealth management is very straightforward. From the affluent individuals perspective, wealth management is simply the science of solving/enhancing his or her financial situation. From the financial advisors perspective, wealth management is the ability of an advisor or advisory team to deliver a full range of financial services and products to an affluent client in a consultative way. Theoretically, a wealth manager can provide every single financial product in existence. In reality most wealth managers specialize in services and products they feel most comfortable with...

Retirement & College Savings. Youre cruising along at 35,000 feet when the cabin suddenly losses pressure. Yellow oxygen masks deploy from the ceiling, begging to be used. You start reaching for the lifeline but your child sitting next to you screams for help. Whats your next move? If you follow the preflight safety instructions, you put on your own mask before assisting others, no questions asked. After all, its difficult to help others if you dont help yourself first. This seems straightforward when were flying through the sky, but a recent report from T. Rowe Price reveals that it becomes cloudy when were on the ground, handling money, as an alarming number of parents are putting their own retirements at risk in order to fund their childrens college expenses. Nine out of 10 parents believe their children will attend college, and since college typically arrives before retirement, the majority of parents feel like they should put money toward that first and save for retirement after. In fact, 49% of parents are willing to delay their own retirements to pay for their childrens education, while 74% feel guilty they wont be able to provide more financial assistance. Overall, 63% are concerned about their children having enough financial resources to attend...

Cash & Credit. In my investment advisory programs, you generally pay an asset based fee, charged quarterly in advance, based on the total value of the assets in your account at the end of the previous quarter. Unless otherwise noted, the asset-based fee generally covers investment consulting and certain brokerage services provided by FinAdvision, as well as the external or internal investment management fees. However, the asset-based fee does not cover expenses paid within any exchange-traded funds or mutual funds you may own. You may select from our comprehensive suite of managed account programs, which are designed for various levels of investment experience and sophistication, with asset minimums that start as low as $5,000. Depending upon the program, your investment advisory account may include stocks, bonds, money market funds, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds and cash.

Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds. Fresh off Wall Street's worst week in four years one that saw the Dow Jones industrial average lose 10 percent of its value and the Standard & Poor's 500 index slip below the magical 2,000 barrier I have two words of advice for gun-shy investors. Don't panic. "We're starting to get some calls, as should be expected," says Erik Jensen, president and founder of Jensen Wealth Advisors in Palm Desert, California, and a registered principal with LPL Financial. "We empathize with them; nobody likes seeing drops like last week. However, we recommend they keep a long-term perspective, understanding that corrections are the norm, not a calamity." Sure, last week may have felt like a calamity if you were watching your portfolio shrink by the hour. But there were tell-tale signs after riding an extraordinary bullish market since 2009, Wall Street had been essentially trading sideways until this month. Then the market's softening became a full-blown meltdown Thursday and Friday. Wall Street's darling stocks the tech sector were among the hardest hit. Netflix (ticker: NFLX) lost nearly 16 percent; Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB) were both down nearly 9 percent and Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) fell 7.7 percent...
