We begin by getting to know you, your goals and your questions. As you look to make the shift from standard savings and checking accounts to full-service financial planning and portfolio management, you may be wondering:
- Is there a difference between saving and investing?
Saving just means putting money aside. Investing is committing money to earn a financial return. We save using bank accounts such as certificates of deposit (CDs), savings accounts and money market accounts which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Non-FDIC insured investments such as mutual funds, annuities, stocks and bonds offer benefits including the opportunity for tax savings and capital appreciation.
- What are the risks associated with investments?
The future performance of mutual funds, the investment return of annuities, and the return of principal from both are not insured by the FDIC nor guaranteed by the Bank. Our personal financial consultants can help you identify risk and manage it, based on your tolerance for changes in the markets.
- How do our personal (and business) registered representatives evaluate your current circumstances?
We ask the right questions, including:
- What are your overall investment goals?
- How long before you’ll need the money from your investment?
- What is your age, tax bracket, and net worth?
- What degree of risk are you willing to take?
