SOUND FINANCIAL STRATEGIES FOR THE DAYS AHEAD
A man on the verge of retiring came to see financial advisor Ron Campbell, CFP®/RFC®, of Maryland-based Campbell Financial Services (CFS). One look at his portfolio, and Campbell identified problems that needed to be addressed immediately.
“He had made incorrect assumptions about taxes on his 401(k), how much risk was appropriate for him, and how much income his wife could expect if he were to pass away,” Campbell says. “We showed him how his income could drop substantially if the stock market experienced another crisis, as in 2008. …Read More

LIVE WELL. YOU’VE EARNED IT.
A running argument about the budget for a new fence brought a couple to the offices of Plotkin Financial Advisors. She wanted to spend $7,000 while he said $5,000 was as much as they could afford. It was an odd conflict seeing that they had a net worth in the millions of dollars.
“Like many people, this couple was educated, sophisticated, and had done an excellent job of accumulating assets for retirement. But they weren’t confident about their ability to maintain them.
