Unlike the disconnect that may exist between your investment advisors and your tax planner, Skygate Financial unifies these two elements, as well as others, to ensure that your tax liability is minimized. The ability to integrate year-long financial planning, portfolio management and tax preparation allows our tax professionals, both CPA and EA, to seamlessly integrate every aspect of your financial affairs.
Skygate Financial planning specialists can help you address a broad range of issues, meet the special needs of individual family members and transfer assets to family and the charities of your choice over time—all using strategies designed to minimize the effects of taxes and market risks in the near and long-term.
Risk Management and Insurance
Risk management and insurance planning touches every aspect of life —health, home, family, business and life itself. We all are exposed to risk of some loss in virtually every endeavor of our lives. We can help by assessing the risks you face and advise you about insurance choices and other strategies to manage those risks. More>>
Our Retirement Planning services begin with an analysis of your income, accumulated assets, retirement plans, and pension and social security benefits. We approach the question of retirement from two viewpoints: what resources are available to provide income and what lifestyle you are trying to maintain. We help clients to think about their retirement lifestyle: what do you want to do in retirement? How much will it cost? Where do you want to live? Will your expenses increase or decrease?
If you are several years away from retirement, we will look at how your assets will grow up to retirement. You may also be unsure when you can afford to retire, and we can give you guidance in choosing the optimal time. In all our retirement planning work, we strive to be conservative, but realistic. We assume you do not want to outlive your assets but, on the other hand, you also want to enjoy retirement. This is often a challenging balance to attain.
Your child's college tuition could be one of the largest expenditures you ever make. With education costs rising at a rate well above inflation, it is important to plan ahead. We help clients assess how much they need to save and the appropriate investment vehicles to meet their particular needs (such as 529 plans and custodial accounts).
A strategic approach to philanthropy can enable you to support causes you care about while reducing taxes and supporting your overall estate plan. Working closely with your Skygate Financial specialists will help you select and implement the charitable giving strategies that best meet your needs. Whether you wish to donate funds, real estate or complex assets, we can help to optimize their impact on the organizations of your choice—and on your estate.
