Financial Advisor Brookline and Newton

Investing on Your Own Isn't Always Best for You

I help both individuals and businesses reach their goals. With no proprietary product requirements or quotas, you benefit from objective advice.

  • Wealth Management, Financial Planning & Retirement Planning advice for your brokerage accounts, Rollover IRA’s, 401(k)s, 403(b), annuities, 529 plans, etc. I can also help you with your life and disability insurance.
  • Advise companies on their 401(k) plans, SEPs, SIMPLE, 403(b), ESOP, and Define Benefit Plans. Help with group life and disability.
  • Help executives and partners design their deferred compensation plans, key employee insurance, and buy-sell agreement review.

Financial Planning for Retirees

Do We Need to Meet in Person?

The first introductory and fact-finding appointment can be in person or by phone. The next meeting where I provide my recommendations should be in person. (For the time being phone, skype, Zoom, and email replacing in-person meetings)

Subsequent meetings where we monitor your progress and investments can be done in-person, by phone, email, Zoom, or skype or, more likely, a combination of these meeting types.

How Much Do You Charge?

Most clients pay fee-only or an hourly rate. The size and complexity of the client’s wealth management and financial and retirement planning determine that fee.

Some clients pay a commission, mainly those with smaller accounts, i.e., Roth IRAs, some public-school teachers with 403b retirement accounts or parents or grandparents setting up a 529 college savings plan.

Please be sure to speak to your advisor to carefully consider the differences between a company retirement account and IRA investment. These factors include, but are not limited to, changes to the availability of funds, withdrawals, fund expenses, fees, and IRA-required minimum distributions.
