Diane focuses on long-range multigenerational planning. It begins by listening carefully to each client and learning about their aspirations and family dynamics, which are then translated into her planning process.
Utilizing her deep planning experience and sophisticated software from Raymond James called Goal Planning & Monitoring, Diane enters each client’s goals to assess appropriate asset allocation targets, spending or savings rates, and the probability of achieving those goals. It helps her clients understand how prepared they are for retirement, and see the effects that today’s saving and investment decisions can have on their future lifestyle.
Her objective for each client is to construct a long-range plan with achievable goals, while mitigating risk and managing wealth to support their retirement and legacy desires. She also incorporates estate and trust planning, long-term care, life insurance and asset allocation to align with the planning results.
