"Will your money outlive you, or will you outlive your money?"
At Milestone Financial Planning (Milestone), we help you answer this question by providing fee-only investment management and financial planning services. Our mission is to help you achieve your goals.
At Milestone, you will work directly with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(TM) practitioner and also be supported by their team of associates. Milestone has a fiduciary responsibility to its clients. We incorporate tax advice into our financial planning, as taxes are an integral part of any financial planning decision. This is an important distinction between our service offering and what other advisors generally offer. We also coordinate your plan with other professionals outside our firm at your direction - CPAs, estate planning attorneys, insurance agents, real estate brokers, etc., to assist you with implementing our financial planning recommendations.
Our value to you, in excess of our cost to you, is 1) estate/financial planning and the creation/maintenance of a goal-focused (not market-driven) portfolio 2) long-term historical perspective and 3) behavioral counseling.
Most wealth is created from hard work, thrift, and initiative. This is why most inherited wealth is gone within one generation. If you want your created or inherited net worth to last, you should implement, monitor, and update a financial plan. In today's complicated environment of investments, taxes, laws, and regulations, this can be incredibly difficult without professional assistance.
We offer ongoing services to clients who are looking for an in-depth relationship with an advisor who will understand their unique circumstances; who will handle the complexity of cash flow planning and investment management integrated with tax and estate issues throughout the years and who will proactively contact them when financial regulations change, or opportunities become available.
As a result, our service is not suitable for short-term or hourly engagements that cannot take advantage of our style of client service.
We will accept a client in any state in the USA. Currently, we are notice filed in MA, NH, ME, CT, VT, PA, CA, LA & TX, but will comply with all licensing and registration requirements of all states, as necessary.
