“I have worked with clients for many years building assets in preparation for retirement.  We know the future economic environment is out of our control, so we create plans that will allow our clients and their children to thrive regardless of the economic landscape they may face.” – Craig M. Volk


We use our extensive and intimate knowledge of the concerns retirees face to help the next generation make decisions that will allow us to have a more impactful role on their long-term planning. 


Business & Personal Planning

We help executives structure their personal finances to prepare, years in advance, for the next phase in business and life. In addition, we guide the next generation of business leaders through decisions today that will greatly impact their financial future.  We lead your employees through a planning process that helps them understand what you provide as an employer, increasing the retention of your key employees and driving up satisfaction.  This also helps the individual employees as we have countless clients that say they wish they would have met us earlier in life, and we hope to give the next generation this opportunity.


Family Business Transitions

We help family businesses structure their business and personal finances to prepare for the next phase in life as they start to transition to the next generation.  We also help the incoming generation and key employees financially prepare for this, equipping them early and getting them ready for the business and responsibility you want to pass on to them. The key is having a strategically integrated plan with all parties to make a smooth transition for everyone.
