Successful financial planning includes a comprehensive view of all your finances.

Financial planning is the process of working towards achieving your goals through the proper
management of your resources by providing direction and meaning to your financial decisions.


Financial Planning

As your wealth grows, life doesn't get simpler - it gets more complex. You may begin asking yourself questions such as:

  • What am I working toward?
  • What steps should I be taking?
  • Am I making progress or not?
  • How will I know when I'm there?
  • Who can best help me get there?

The Financial Planning process will help you answer these questions. If you don't currently know the answers, then you should. If you want to know the answers, then our team can help. As CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals, we understand the complex financial planning issues that our clients face, and we have a long history of successfully helping those clients achieve their goals and objectives.

Comprehensive Approach

Walla Street utilizes a comprehensive approach which will help you to understand how each decision you make will affect the interrelated areas of your finances. By viewing each decision as part of a whole, you can more clearly consider both the short and long-term effects on your life goals, and you can more easily adapt when life changes do occur. Financial planning will help you stay on track to continue to reach your goals.

The financial planning services at Walla Street Wealth Management focus on four different areas:

  • Retirement Planning
  • Estate Planning
  • Tax Planning
  • Educational Funding Planning
Retirement Planning

Retirement Planning is the process of setting retirement goals, estimating the income needed to meet those goals, and identifying the sources from which the necessary income may be generated. The role of our wealth management team in this process is to design a plan that is consistent with your retirement goals and designated resources. We will provide you with our analysis of both your quantitative and qualitative data when compared to your projected retirement income need to determine a plan of action. This consolidated analysis will then serve as your roadmap to retirement.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning is the process of managing your assets in the event of an incapacitation, and the orderly disposition of your assets in the event of death. These assets may include cash accounts, investment accounts, insurance proceeds, real estate, business interests, and personal property. Common goals of successful estate planning are the avoidance of probate, reducing or eliminating estate taxes, equalizing beneficiary inheritance, maximizing charitable giving, and providing for a smooth transition of assets from one generation to the next. When possible, our Advisory Team will utilize the legal documents that you already have in place, or provide counsel if you have yet to establish the documents recommended for your plan.

Tax Planning

Tax Planning is the process of arranging your financial affairs so as to minimize your tax liability and maximize your net income. We aren't concerned as much with what you will make, as we are with what you will keep. Our wealth management team will analyze the tax savings opportunities that are available to you and will help you to formulate a plan of action that will help to maximize your net return. Our clients tend to have significant income streams from both employment and investments, which makes the Tax Planning process crucial to retaining your hard-earned assets.

Educational Funding Planning

Educational Funding can be an area of critical importance to our clients and greatly affects those who have yet to fund the increasing cost of higher education. Our clients tend to be highly educated and encourage their children and grandchildren to pursue a higher level of education as well. Our role in the Educational Planning process is three-fold...first, to conduct a thorough analysis of future educational costs; second, to determine which available savings programs will be most advantageous to utilize; and third, to develop a consistent savings strategy so that adequate funds will be available when required.
