Like gardening or working out, tax planning is one of those activities where you get out of it what you put into it. Plenty of us have a weight bench gathering dust in the garage that hasn’t gotten us into any better shape, or a plot in the backyard that just won’t grow anything because we never weed it. Tax planning is similar in the sense that you can put work in on the front end that you’ll reap benefits from later.Read more
Advice in Common Language
You Deserve To Understand What’s Happening With Your Money.
Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life and your future.
At White Ember, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.
What are you going to do with my money?
First, we’ll get to know you and what you value most. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to achieve those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we’ll allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.
Can you handle the complexity of my situation?
We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While we’ve helped thousands of families navigate complex financial needs, each family gets a personalized allocation strategy to help guide them through life’s major decisions.
How can you make my life easier?
As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your life. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – providing as much or as little information as you’d like.
Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at White Ember we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.
Discover the right investment strategy for you.
Tell us a little more about your investment objectives and level of comfort with risk.
By what percentage do you expect your portfolio to grow
annually over the long-term (10+ years)?
We’ll help you find the freedom that comes from confidence in your financial future.
We’re here to help you make sense of your financial situation and respond confidently the next time that nagging question pops up again: “Will I be okay?” We’ll help you coordinate your team of professionals – from lawyers to accountants – to enurse they’re in sync and efficient. At White Ember, our passion is to bring confidence and clarity to this process, to give you ownership and control over your financial life.
