Getting close to retirement age (a few years away)and I have faithfully contributed to my 401k and have been making my own investment/allocation decisions. I am a buy and hold investor- never sold in a downturn and tried not to invest in an upturn market. I would reevaluate my positions twice yearly. I have always had a hard time selling to reap profits. Wisdom states to become less aggressive as one nears retirement so I soul searched and determined that is what I must do for my retirement years and an investment advisor would be in my best interest.I did my due diligence by searching multiple sites/firms and even interviewed a few. I highly recommend you do the same.One of the firms was Towerpoint Wealth.Going in I had the usual emotions-anxiousness, a feeling of wasting my time again, wondering if they would fit my investment style, etc.Immediately upon entering their office I felt invited and welcomed. Jonathan and Steve introduced themselves before I even had a chance to meet Joseph.On our first meeting Joseph was very knowledgeable, addressed my concerns, interests, and asked about my goals, plans, and future visions.On my next meeting with Joseph I was presented with a game plan on a white board addressing how the firm can help with my goals and lifestyle wishes. Very impressive. This company fit my investment style and temperament (Is there such a thing?) As a small fish in the ocean they made me feel like a large fish.So, after about 2 years of searching, Towerpoint Wealth is my personal decision. I don’t think you could do yourself a disservice by putting Towerpoint on your interview list.As I am a fairly new client to their service I will update my review down the line as the situation warrants.So far a great start and have complete confidence it will be a great relationship.Best wishes on your journey also. JimP.S. Shout out to Lori for her excellent communication informing me of any needs/concerns.

Why is it important to have a financial advisor?

Accumulating money doesn’t always lead directly to economic peace of mind. This money also has to be properly managed and protected if it’s going to last you through your lifetime. It is not common to have the time, expertise, desire, patience, or discipline to establish, and then consistently execute on, a well-thought-out and customized wealth-building and wealth-protecting plan, so that when you’re ready to stop working, your net worth will be enough to help you enjoy the rest of your life.

Investing, coordinating, protecting, and managing your wealth and assets is a challenge that increases as your net worth does.

This leads to the inevitable question that many investors find themselves asking at some point in their net worth building journey – “How and where can I partner with a trustworthy, qualified, and supportive financial advisor who can help me properly manage and coordinate much of this financial heavy lifting?” Sacramento Financial Advisor Near Me

How important is it to have a local financial advisor?

We enjoy the opportunity to connect with our clients in person to deepen our relationships and foster healthy communication and planning, and though we are a Sacramento wealth management firm, we regularly partner with clients in Granite Bay, Rocklin, Roseville, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Auburn, Davis, and throughout the Northern California region.

While important, in-person meetings aren’t a requirement for a wealth management partnership. More important is that you find someone with the best qualifications for financial advisor.

What are the advantages of working with a fully independent wealth management firm?

Almost six years ago, our three founding partners were employed by a major Wall Street firm, and felt that a “graduation” was in order, for both themselves, but more importantly, for each of their clients. The decision was made to establish Towerpoint Wealth as a boutique, fully independent wealth management firm, as it had become evident that we could serve our clients’ needs much more effectively as an independent firm, with a much broader array of tools, technology, and investment products to assist our clients. Additionally, and importantly, we are now legal fiduciaries to our clients, are responsible to act in our clients’ best interests 100% of the time, and are no longer obliged to prioritize the interests of our employer over those of our clients.

The technology available to us as a fully independent firm far surpasses the financial, reporting, tax, investment, and retirement planning tools we were previously beholden to. Access to this type of technology enables us at Towerpoint Wealth to serve our clients with a wider and more advanced spectrum of resources, eclipsing our previous capabilities. This open-architecture model frees us from the legacy systems to which we were previously captive. We believe this work environment minimizes conflicts between us and the needs of our clients. As Sacramento Independent financial advisors, we work for our clients and no longer for a major bank or brokerage firm, and serve our clients in an environment free from corporate influences and mandates. Independent financial advisors.

Can I retire on 2 million dollars?

Retiring with 2 million dollars for some sounds like a dream, and for others not nearly enough. A 2020 survey from Schwab Retirement Plan Services found that the average worker expects to need roughly $1.9 million to retire comfortably. When can I retire? Is retiring with 2 million dollars a reasonable goal? There certainly are number of things to consider before attempting to answer this question. We appreciate the responsibility of helping you to clarify questions like this one, as we believe it is essential to combine both the “art” and the “science” of wealth management and financial planning when working with you to make informed decisions about important financial matters, like when to retire.

What is your approach to helping clients?

Here at Towerpoint Wealth, we believe that money, in the purest sense of its form, is simply a means to an end. Financial independence means having enough money to ensure your peace of mind. Our wealth management philosophy is grounded in a consultative process that begins with simply sitting down, talking with, and beginning to get to know you. Understanding your hopes, dreams, background, fears, motivations, and vision you have for your and your family’s future may take a sincere investment of our (and your) time and energy, but is absolutely essential in building a long-term foundation to ensure you receive the best and most intimate planning, counsel, and guidance, and so we may construct the most customized plan for your financial future.

We also expect to regularly collaborate with your other professional service providers to ensure that the many non-investment specific aspects of your financial life are properly coordinated and integrated into your customized wealth management plan. From tax management and minimization to comprehensive estate planning, and from real estate coordination to business and insurance considerations, there are typically a myriad of components to your customized financial plan that we believe need to be considered and integrated into your strategy.

In other words, our Sacramento Financial Advisors sincerely care about understanding you and what makes you tick. Towerpoint Wealth Philosophy & Strategy >

Are you a legal a fiduciary for your clients?

Yes. We are a legal fiduciary for our clients. In the investment field, there are two types of primary parties who are able to offer investment advice to individuals, as well as to institutional clients such as pension funds, non-profit organizations and corporations. These parties are 1.) fiduciary financial advisors and 2.) investment brokers who are employees of broker-dealers.

Many clients may say “what’s the difference?” and consider the investment advice they receive from each party as similar; however, there is a key difference that oftentimes is not completely understood by the investing public. The difference pertains to two very different professional standards that fiduciary financial advisors versus investment brokers must adhere to, and the distinction has immensely important implications for individuals who hire outside financial assistance.

How do I increase my net worth?

Why do investors feel smarter and more confident when the markets are rising, and dumber and less confident when the markets are declining? One word: emotions. At Towerpoint Wealth, we believe that an essential quality of a skilled financial advisor is the ability to help a client remain objective, avoid becoming overconfident, and also manage the feeling of hopelessness when the markets (and client account balances) inevitably go through temporary periods of decline. Managing emotions and remaining objective when making financial decisions can be difficult to do by oneself, but is an essential component of longer-term success in building and protecting net worth. Net Worth.

What estate planning documents do I need?

If you have a financial plan, you also have an estate. In fact, no matter your net worth, once you die, everything you own is considered part of the estate you left behind. It is essential to have an estate plan and properly drafted estate planning documents that specify how you want your assets distributed upon incapacity or death. When most individuals are thinking about estate planning and wills and assembling their estate planning documents, there are also tax consequences to think about. A truly comprehensive estate plan considers both the tax consequences for you during life, as well as those that the beneficiaries of your estate may face. Estate Planning

What do I need to understand about the taxation of restricted stock units?

Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) can be a significant component of an employee’s compensation package. But the taxation of restricted stock units, a form of stock based compensation whereby an employee receives rights to shares of stock in a company that are subject to certain restrictions, can be fairly complex. While RSUs do not represent actual ownership or equity interest in a company until they vest, they do become taxable upon vesting.

Our Sacramento Financial Advisors are here to help.  Please contact us with any questions you have about building an RSU strategy?
