Positive cash flow is, by far, the most important measure of financial health. Verde helps you follow proven financial rules that enable you to live life to the fullest today while also saving for your future.

We help you:

  • Develop a budget.
  • Review your savings rate to see if goals are being met.
  • Create a cash reserve strategy and determine how much should be held for emergencies and short-term liquidity.

Life is often unpredictable. Unexpected events can challenge the even most carefully thought-out plan. Therefore, a fully developed financial roadmap has contingencies for unforeseen risks. Whether dealing with a new birth, a death in the family, job loss or a prolonged disability, Verde ensures you take all relevant risks into account.

We help you:

  • Determine your risk tolerance and make sure the amount of volatility in your portfolio matches your profile.
  • Examine the need for life, disability, and long-term care insurance.
  • Gain peace of mind by planning for the unexpected, should it occur.

The backbone of any portfolio is investment planning. Verde’s advisers will work with you to create a detailed investment strategy that aligns with both your financial goals and risk tolerance. The bottom-up investment approach we use is based on cutting-edge research coming out of Harvard and Yale.

We help you:

  • Analyze your assets and liabilities to determine how you can increase your net worth moving forward.
  • Evaluate what investment options are offered through your employer and advise which selections to make.
  • Review your current rate of return & discuss what to expect the next quarter.
  • Develop an education investment plan: estimate costs, how much you need to save, and establish a college savings account.

We help you:

  • Develop a comprehensive retirement plan including your desired retirement age, anticipated monthly retirement expenses and see if you are on track to achieve your goals.
  • Examine the funds you are withdrawing to ensure the amount will not deplete your accounts prematurely.
  • Calculate your RMD’s, if you are over 70.5 years of age, and offer advice on the best way to take a distribution.
