A San Francisco Retirement Financial Advisor Will Help You Plan for Tomorrow
What are your goals? Our financial advisors can help you meet them.
Today Is the Day You Begin Your Retirement Plan
It’s never too early (or too late) to start planning for retirement. Whether you’re decades away from retirement or you need to play catch up, Marin Wealth Advisors has a retirement financial advisor who can craft a plan that works for you.
Where Would You Like to Retire?
Would you like to stay in the Bay Area once you retire, or would you prefer to move elsewhere? Planning is the best way to preserve your options and create your ideal retirement life.
A retirement planner can help you understand how to manage your expenses now, invest for the future, and prepare for a comfortable retirement, wherever you go.
You’re in Charge
When you work with Marin Wealth Advisors, we start by providing the information you need to make informed choices about your retirement. Your retirement plan will consider your current expenses and income and your expected living expenses once you retire.
Your retirement planner will educate you about your choices and help you assess your risk tolerance. That information will become the basis for a plan that provides you with security for the future.
Some wealth management firms offer cookie-cutter solutions for retirement planning. At Marin Wealth Advisors, we know that creating financial security requires a strategy that fits your life choices, so we work with you to build a bespoke retirement plan.
Retirement planning is about more than retirement
Many life choices impact your retirement financial plan. You might need funds to send children to college, take care of elderly parents, or save up for a down payment on a home or investment property. Building assets to cover those expenses is essential to a financial plan for your life before and after retirement.
Your plan may also incorporate expected stock compensation, an employer buyout, or the sale of a business or other significant asset. Perhaps you plan to retire early; you need to prepare for taxes and ensure that your investment income can cover your living expenses for the long term.
Our experienced wealth managers can help you bring all aspects of your financial life into focus and as you put in place the foundation for a secure retirement.
Getting Started on a San Francisco Retirement Plan
Thinking about saving enough to cover your retirement years can seem overwhelming if you’ve never had a retirement plan before, but Marin Wealth Advisors can make it easy for you. We will work through your retirement plan together, one step at a time.
What Do You Want from
You don’t have to have all the answers before you sit down with your retirement guide. Your advisor will know the right questions to ask to gather the information needed to understand your resources and your vision for retirement. Then they will make recommendations based on up-to-date data about retirement best practices.
Finding the Balance Between
Growth and Safety
Do you prefer a higher level of risk in exchange for greater returns? Or are you more comfortable with a slow and steady approach to investing? Your advisor will help you create a retirement plan that matches your risk profile. The balance between growth and safety may change as you near retirement. Your planner can guide you through that transition as well.
What Will a San Francisco Retirement Cost?
A critical component of your retirement plan is understanding your financial needs once you stop working. Your financial retirement advisor will walk you through your options based on your fixed costs and benefits, if any, and what you want to do during your retirement. If you wish to live on a cruise ship, start a second career, or move closer to family, your retirement planner can help you understand how much your preferred options will cost and what you will need to make your vision a reality.
Revisit and Fine-Tune Your Retirement Plan
Life comes with surprises, particularly if you’re still many years from retirement. Fortunately, your retirement plan can change, too. If your circumstances change, meet with your financial advisor to revise your retirement plan to support you in your current situation.
Even if your life doesn’t change much, the world does. Reviewing your retirement plan every few years will ensure that your investments are appropriately balanced and continue to provide the maximum return.
A financial advisor from Marin Wealth Advisors will weigh the benefits of various types of IRAs and other self-managed and tax-deferred accounts for your situation.Tax planning is integral to retirement planning, and we can help you navigate the tax implications of your investment choices.
Postponing taxes on your contributions and investment income can reduce your current tax burden and help you build more cushion for retirement.
Planning for Life After Work
The key to a robust retirement plan is understanding your expenses, where you can save, and how you can leverage your assets to build financial security. Your retirement planner can help you run the numbers on creative retirement strategies, such as subdividing your property to create a second unit that would give you rental income or renting your home while you travel.
Without a plan, retirement can be scary and overwhelming. But, when you work with a retirement advisor, you will discover your options and chart the best path to a comfortable retirement.
Humans Are Living Longer, so Retirement Planning Is Even More Critical
You eat well, breathe clean air, and get plenty of exercise, so you could live to your 90s or beyond. If you retire at 65, you might spend almost as many years retired as you did working.
Living longer is lovely, but it can cause anxiety for seniors living on a fixed income. You need to know that you’ll have enough to pay your bills, no matter how long you live. A retirement planner can give you clarity so you can relax, knowing your future is secure. And you can ask your planner to adjust your retirement plan as needed, even after you stop working.
