For young families, the immediate cost of raising a child can be testing financially. Just when you thought you were in the clear from student loan repayments and your never-ending car lease, a hungry mouth appears with countless sleepless nights and a hefty price tag attached. But diapers, baby formula, and stuffed toys aren’t the only financial burdens parents should worry about.
Who are My Clients?
Waite Financial clients are affluent individuals and families who desire a holistic approach to their wealth management and legacy planning.
Oftentimes they are in significant transition and require strategic help, for example, with:
- the timing of retirement
- responsible management of an inheritance aligned with their values
- dealing with the complexities around the death of a spouse
- complex tax or estate planning issues
- sale of closely held business
- the timing and exercise of stock options and deferred compensation payouts
Sometimes they are “suddenly wealthy” as a result of a significant liquidity event such as a legal settlement or an increased value in stock position.
Many are women who seek safe environments where they are not pressured into making hasty planning and investing decisions.
These situations may present more challenges and require an understanding of personal values and family dynamics and aspirations in order to create an ongoing process for addressing the opportunities and risks that accompany them.
