Financial Planning: The Essence of Your Success
Preparing for your future entails far more than investing. It requires thoughtful and proactive planning, focusing on the factors that can influence your financial success.
Our experienced professionals have the capabilities to advise you on a wide range of planning topics and the interrelationships between them. We deliver clear and meaningful recommendations that translate into effective real-life solutions.
Connecting You With Your Wealth
We appreciate that your financial planning needs to look beyond your balance sheet. It needs to consider what’s best for you, your family, what you care about, and the impact you want to achieve. We formulate plans and make recommendations based on your unique objectives, and we always respect your decisions.
Planning for the future is important at any age. It helps you to chart a confident course as you prepare for and navigate retirement. SageVest works with you to define your retirement objectives, then utilizes sophisticated planning methods to develop sound financial plans that support your priorities. All plans include a number of ‘what-if’ scenarios designed to help you consider and plan for possible real-life events.
Taxes are integral to virtually every element of your financial decisions. We place a strong emphasis on evaluating tax impacts as part all investment and planning initiatives. We work with you and your tax advisor to minimize tax exposure. We also incorporate broader income and estate tax projections into your long-term financial strategies.
College funding is one of the biggest and fastest-growing expenses families face. Our advisors can help you to determine funding levels, evaluate options, and make smart savings choices. With careful planning, you can make a valuable investment in your child or grandchild’s future.
Your financial goals and decisions often extend to family members, including children, parents, and siblings. We actively facilitate intergenerational planning discussions, either through direct participation or counseling, and always with care and clarity. We also offer a range of educational resources for clients, including financial workshops for Millennials, and a public website, SageVestKids.com, designed to help sage parents raise happy, healthy, and wise children.
Benefits & Compensation
We work with you to evaluate pay and benefit options in order to maximize your business and employment opportunities. For business owners and executives, we develop recommendations that integrate both your personal and business objectives.
As a business owner, you need to plan for yourself and your family, as well as for your business. These intertwined objectives can sometimes compete and conflict with one another, complicating your financial decision-making. SageVest’s team offers the training and skills you need to help simplify these complexities and optimize both your business and life plans.

We listen to your objectives, family priorities, and giving goals, and then formulate strategies that support your wishes, while allowing you to retain flexibility and control over your assets.
For many people, giving back is an important part of who they are and the values they represent. SageVest helps you to determine what giving options make the most sense for you, your finances, the causes you support, and the impact you want to make.
