Our comprehensive, planning-based approach affords our clients peace of mind. We complete a thorough analysis of our clients’ financial situation to best position their portfolios to meet their goals and objectives. BT Wealth Management is committed to the principles of financial planning. While our investment resources are extensive, our Client Process extends beyond the management of portfolios. It encompasses our clients’ lifetime financial needs.
BTWM Planners offer a wealth of expertise for retirement planning. We use specialized software to model retirement scenarios for clients to illustrate specific withdrawal scenarios, potential investment outcomes, and the impact of taxes and inflation.
Cash Flow Analysis
For many of our clients’ families, balancing short-term cash needs with mid- and long-term goals can be a challenge, particularly for clients with irregular income from small businesses or partnerships, budgeting can present an operational challenge that needs expert advice. Our planners consult on the best way to structure liquid accounts and procedures to make achieving goals as automated and seamless as possible. Our client portal offers budgeting and account review tools as needed, to track spending.
Life Event Planning
During and after the divorce settlement negotiations, the unknowns can be overwhelming. Our team of advisors and planners have experience in helping clients navigate their financial options during this emotional time. We coordinate with attorneys and CPAs to determine how different scenarios will affect the plan for a client’s wealth. We then work together to evaluate and optimize cash flow, investment portfolio, insurance and estate requirements as a single individual. We service clients who have never managed relationships with financial professionals, ensuring that our clients are backed by a team of knowledgeable fiduciaries to support them with confidence on their new path.
