smart investors choose smart advisors

As an independent advisor in the metro Detroit area for over 22 years, a significant part of our practice has been focused on the financial livelihood of thousands of autoworkers and their families. In addition to individual consultation, my experience has included authoring proprietary retirement and financial planning programs for companies including Ford Motor Co., General Motors, Lucent, States of Montana and Washington, AT&T and CalPERS, among others.

In light of the recent trend of corporate and municipal pension buyouts, we have developed this site to aid in your decision of whether to take the lump sum or stick with the pension. The decision is a complex one, and each person will have a unique set of considerations. An educated decision requires a look at a lot of different variables, which we cover in detail in our white papers and throughout this site. Don’t wait until it is too late. Contact us if you need an expert opinion on your pension buyout.
