Asset location makes a difference.

Retirement planning is more than socking away funds for the future. Several critical factors can determine the difference between a powerful investment program and failing to meet your goals.

Asset location refers to the type of account in which you’re invested.

  • A tax-advantaged account might be ideal for an equity portfolio where growth can take place unencumbered by capital gains tax.
  • A taxable brokerage-style account might be a better location for fixed income instruments.

Some clients ask us to look at the alignment of multiple IRAs and rolled over 401(k) plans.

  • We might ask, “Is the titling of the accounts in line with trust and estate documents?"
  • "Is the investment strategy in step with the client’s actual life style and requirements?”
