Large Family Looking for Financial ServicesWhether you dream of retiring early or plan to continue working and growing your wealth for as long as your health allows, you need a custom investment strategy and retirement plan that helps you achieve your goals. What you don’t need is a hard sell from someone who is looking to make a commission from the limited number of financial products they offer.

At Leonard Financial Solutions, you will work with an independent financial advisor to find the best path for getting you where you want to be 10, 20, or even 30 years from now. Protect what you have already earned and learn about your options for growing those assets into a substantial nest egg by talking to Jonathan Leonard today.

Options for Securing Your Financial Future

You have a lot of options when it comes to investing for the future. The choices you make will depend on your financial situation and your tolerance for risk. When you talk to Jonathan about your goals for the future, he will lay out your options for achieving them and develop a custom plan that includes financial products that make the most sense for you.

Your plan for retirement investing might include:

  • Annuities. If your goal is to have a steady flow of cash in your retirement years, an annuity might be the investment tool for you. There are many types of annuities to consider, but the general idea is that you invest your money in the fund and receive regular payments from the account over the period of time you choose. Jonathan will present a variety of options and explain the pros and cons of each as you work together to choose the best annuity for you. Because Jonathan is an independent advisor, he is not tied to any one company or fund, giving you a wide range of products to select from. There are tax implications for each type of fund, so it is important that you work with a knowledgeable advisor to make the right decision.
  • Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). We can help you establish, consolidate, and manage IRAs and will help you choose between a Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, and SEP IRA. These can be effective tools for saving for retirement in a tax-friendly way starting at the beginning of your career.
  • 401(k) plans. Your employer may offer 401(k) plans, which are employer-sponsored retirement savings accounts that allow you to contribute a portion of your salary to a retirement fund, often with employer-matching contributions. We can help you make the most of this valuable employee benefit.
  • Mutual funds. Mutual funds pool money from multiple people to invest in a diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, and other securities. If it makes sense as part of your investment portfolio, we can consider a range of mutual funds that meet your goals for diversification, risk, convenience, and cost.
  • Life insurance. Life insurance policies, such as term life insurance or permanent life insurance, can provide financial protection for loved ones in the event of your death. For many of our clients, this is a safety net they appreciate having.
  • Long-term care insurance. These insurance policies cover the costs associated with long-term care services, such as nursing home care or in-home care, in case an individual requires assistance with daily activities due to illness, injury, or aging. Jonathan will help you do a cost-benefit analysis of long-term care insurance plans.
  • Education savings plans. If you have young children, we can provide options for education savings, such as 529 plans or Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs), which allow individuals to save for qualified education expenses, including tuition, books, and other educational costs. It takes time to research and find the best plan for your family, but we will do the legwork for you.
  • Personalized financial advice. Sure, you can search the internet for your retirement planning options, but does Google know what your hopes and dreams are for the future? Does it know how many kids you have and what their educational goals are? Does it know what your income is, how much you have left on your mortgage, and what your savings account looks like? Jonathan will take the time to get to know you so that he can make appropriate recommendations that help you achieve the life you want.
