Wealth management is about more than investment advice. Wealth management offers comprehensive guidance on your financial situation, including estate and tax planning, accounting, retirement planning and even legal guidance in some cases. This offers a more complete picture of your overall financial well-being. If you have not taken a good look at your financial health lately, right now might be the time to check in with your wealth management advisor.

What should I review to get ready for the year ahead?

  • Investment strategy — Last year, did your portfolio perform according to your expectations? Have any of your investment goals changed since the beginning of last year? It is important to make sure your investment approach makes sense for your current goals and devise a plan to change your strategy if this is not the case.
  • Debt management — What sources of debt do you have, and can you consolidate them? Have interest rates changed from last year? If so, it may be time to refinance. Try to lock in lower rates if given the opportunity.
  • Tax strategies — It’s a smart move to plan ahead for taxes. Have you made contributions toward college savings plans or retirement savings? What about charitable donations? Have you been keeping an eye on your contribution limits? Taxes can be complicated where wealth management is concerned.
  • Estate planning — If your assets are not already accounted for in your will, it may be time to take the first step toward estate planning. If you have already begun planning for the future of your estate, you may want to review your plans, especially if you have made any major life changes over the past year, such as purchasing new property or having another child.
