Your New Generation of Retirement

Selected content image

It wasn’t so long ago that retirement meant a pension and a gold watch, but today’s world looks much different than it did for generations past. The burden of retirement falls more heavily on the shoulders of individual Americans than it ever has before, but you don’t have to carry it alone.


New Generation Retirement® is a holistic approach to retirement planning. It consists of a five-step retirement planning system that we will work through together. Through this planning process, you’ll be confident that you have given careful consideration to asset allocation and risk, income planning, asset maximization, legacy planning and tax strategies.

The Five Steps


Selecting a Financial Services Professional 

Step One helps you understand the role of a financial services professional and introduces New Generation Retirement Planning.


Fact and Feeling Finding 

Step Two encompasses thought-provoking questions about your financial well-being and how you feel about it. It begins with the Color of Money Risk Analysis and incorporates the elements of discovery and client feedback.



Step Three arms you with a deep understanding of your goals and objectives, as we craft and present a holistic plan based on your goals and objectives. Your takeaway from this step will be a series of insightful reports always accessible to you through your Generational Vault account.


Solutions and Executing 

If there are parts of your plan that include creating new accounts or purchasing new financial products, Step Four lays out a clear, documented process to do so. This step is characterized by efficiency using forward-thinking technology such as electronically-generated and pre-populated forms with e-signature capabilities.


Ongoing Relationship

Our work together isn’t over when we have completed the retirement planning process and product selection. Step Five addresses how we continuously work toward your long-term goals and objectives and help you monitor your financial progress.

When you work with our company, each step is recorded in Generational Vault so you can be confident knowing that you have given careful consideration to every detail of your retirement plan.
