Financial Planning

Financial Planning with Scott Swaylik

Your wealth strategy doesn’t just consider your investment objectives. Rather, it is tailored to address the personal life goals you’ve identified and prioritized.

Using our suite of tools — our LifeView® platform — we can create your personal roadmap to help achieve and protect your goals — a framework that makes the connection between your life goals and your financial resources, and provides a baseline for future discussions. 

LifeView® helps us:
      • Analyze your current investments, and financial situation
      • Review and prioritize your goals with you, such as Retirement
      • Education funding
      • Major purchases and philanthropic goals
      • Protect your goals
      • Develop wealth transfer strategies

Transforming Passion into Action

Do you have a passion that you'd like to transform into an actionable plan that benefits others?  I, along with our partners1 across the firm, can help you:

  • Define your charitable interests and identify nonprofits that work in those areas
  • Select charitable vehicles that may address your needs
  • Implement plans to help ensure that your charitable dollars are well spent
  • Seek nonprofit board placements that complement your passion
  • Conduct research on specific charities and areas of charitable interest
  • Introduce you to like-minded philanthropists
  • Find ways to involve children and other family members in your giving
  • Offer Foundation Management Services, a sophisticated, turn-key, back-office solution for family and corporate foundations

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss ways of incorporating charitable giving into your overall wealth strategy and intergenerational planning. In the meantime, to begin to identify factors that might have shaped your attitude about charitable giving, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Which childhood lessons about money related to giving have carried over into your life as an adult?
  • As you look at how you spend your time now, what activities do you enjoy the most? Which activities do you consider the most worthwhile?
  • Describe the nonprofits you support. What is your reason for giving to these organizations?
  • What single charitable gift or activity has given you the most joy?
  • Do you know how effectively the organizations you support have been using the money? Is this an important factor to you?
