Our Process In a nutshell, we view the planning process as finding out where you want to go, where you currently stand financially, and then we determine the optimal strategies to help you reach your destination. That may be a straight-line approach to achieving goals, but one thing we can be certain of is that the journey along the path won't be anything like a straight-line. Life will invariably bring unexpected events, issues, and changing family circumstances. Creating a plan is critical to achieving financial goals. But like other goals, getting started on them is the most difficult part. It can already be a sizable chore to remain committed to actions you plan for yourself, let alone recommendations made by someone else. But please don’t dismiss the need to have a plan. The value of having something on paper you can use as a guide to help with financial decisions can’t be overlooked. When the focus remains on accomplishing goals, then the means used to accomplish your goals become easier to manage. A plan tailored to your needs will enable you to know why you’re taking certain strategies and what you can expect from them. As you enter various phases of your financial life-cycle, you need access to a source of information that can help you make better informed financial decisions while you confront changing financial issues.

Phases of The Financial Life-Cycle Accumulation Phase Those in the accumulation phase generally have longer time-horizons that may allow for higher risk tolerances and potentially higher returns. Distribution Phase One of the most challenging phase since many in the distribution phase are balancing financial issues in all phases along with identifying tax favored strategies for the various sources of income. Preservation And Protection Phase The emphasis for those in this stage can be keeping what they have, fulfilling family transfer goals, and ensuring they don't outlive their money. As people move farther down the financial life-cycle, different issues and priorities will inevitably surface; a well-documented financial plan will help monitor and adjust strategies to change with objectives. One of the biggest difference between the phases will be the risk tolerance. Carr Wealth Management specializes in helping you identify a risk level that matches your financial situation.
