Financial Planning Services

Investment Advice

We conduct an assessment of your goals and objectives, including in-depth risk tolerance analysis, ensuring that your goals are aligned with your investment plan. An integral part of our investment consulting services is advice on asset location, portfolio construction and rebalancing, and comprehensive client reporting. We can also advise you on private investments and college funding vehicles. 

Financial Decision Making

We assist you with important financial decisions such as home purchase and mortgage selection, prenuptial agreements and marital dissolution, debt restructuring, advice on corporate benefits programs, new business or other substantial asset acquisitions, negotiated investments, and charitable giving guidance.

Retirement Planning

We work with you to develop and achieve a savings target, provide guidance on pension elections, retirement plan asset allocations, IRA withdrawal strategies, and advise you on cash flow and liability management as well as debt restructuring.

Insurance Consultation

We provide a review of your insurance policies, including life, disability, property & casualty, general liability, and long term care insurance to determine if you have sufficient coverage or if there are opportunities for cost savings.

Tax Planning

We provide advice and guidance on estate tax strategies, transaction analysis, review of tax returns, and analysis of how tax law changes can affect your investments. Our professionals will work closely with your personal advisors or may recommend outside professionals when necessary to provide specific guidance in developing sophisticated tax planning strategies.

Trust & Estate Planning

We review your wills and trusts, including revocable trusts, life insurance trusts, and intervivos trusts, along with your gifting strategies for efficient transfer of wealth to heirs or charitable causes. We can also work closely with your personal advisors or work with you to identify outside professionals, when necessary, to provide specific guidance in developing trust planning strategies.

What goes into a financial plan?

A financial plan takes into account your assets, your liabilities and any other circumstances that will impact your wealth. A financial plan focuses on your goals – both short and long-term – and what you need to achieve them. At Boston Private, we provide a comprehensive analysis and develop a plan customized for your individual situation.
