Our Services

Let us provide our comprehensive  financial services to you.  Your best interest is always first!

Retirement Planning

Do you wonder if you’ll have enough for your retirement? We can help answer that question in a few ways. Using our planning software, we can get an idea about where your account balances may end up in future time frames. We can also work with you to help create or shore up your strategies for your retirement funding. 
Your lifestyle goals, budgeting, cash flow, investments and optimizing for taxes are topics we will cover, resulting in a plan just for you.

Portfolio Management

You deserve a strong portfolio management team that uses the latest financial science and market data. After we get to know you and your unique and specific situation, goals and timeline, we can help create the strategy for your investments. You will have access to your investments, quarterly reports and meetings with your advisor to assure we are in alignment on your solution.

All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful.

Protection and Risk Avoidance

Some risks are too… risky! You may have family who depend on your support or a favorite charity you’d like to fund with your legacy. While a long life is a blessing, it brings the chance of ‘outliving’ your retirement savings, or having to live on less. Pair that risk with the fast-rising cost of healthcare and your golden and twilight years may not have the comforts that you would like.

At Serenity, we want you to be certain that should something catastrophic occur, you have the right protections such as Life and Long-Term Care insurance. We also offer annuity products, which can create a guaranteed* income for your life.

Your best interest is always first. We will absolutely not recommend any product that is not appropriate for you and you will always have options and be able to make your own choice without any sales pressure.

*Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the issuing company.
