“There are more investments options than just stocks, bonds and mutual funds.”
“ASSET CLASS DIVERSIFICATION”
We work together with our clients to find the right financial products for their specific situations, and often it turns out that they are not all stocks, bonds and mutual funds. This is what truly sets us apart. We view a portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds as falling into one investment category. If traditional investing was the only way to invest, then 2001 and 2008 would not have been so significantly disastrous for many. We work to diversify the portfolios of our clients so they have multiple types of investments and financial vehicles, and therefore achieve what we call “asset class diversification.”
THE FINANCIAL TRIANGLE
We believe having a top-notch financial advisor, a tax planner (not a tax preparer) and a good attorney are essential for effective retirement planning. Those three pillars of estate planning are so connected that those individuals need to be talking to each other. In the Dixson Professional Center, we offer every element of the financial triangle although that does not mean you have to use these services as a client of Northwest Financial & Tax Solutions, Inc. Jeff is a financial advisor. We seek to forge strong relationships with any attorney you choose to work with and can refer you to top-notch attorneys. In addition, we house our income tax business, US Tax Centers NW, LLC.
