Investment Planning Services Frequently our clients ask us the following questions: How much money do we currently have to invest for college and/or retirement? At my level of risk tolerance, what different asset classes should I be invested in? Does our investment portfolio make sense from an income and estate perspective? Let our trained staff assist you in drafting and implementing a coordinated investment plan. Bank Loan Proposals Over the years we have developed a methodology of preparing loan proposals which enables management to articulate its need for additional loans and forecasts the results of attaining the loan and additional business obtained as a result of the loan. Management can use these bank loan proposals to secure competitive bids from more than one financial institution.
