Purpose. Planning. Portfolio.™
Ridgegate Financial was founded in 2003 as an independent financial planning firm. We pride ourselves on our emphasis on meaningful and lasting relationships with clients and on our thorough and robust planning process. At Ridgegate Financial we truly care about the client's Purpose, which guides the Planning process, and manifests itself in a Portfolio that supports it all.
The first part of the process is to identify your Purpose in retirement. It is great to know what you are retiring from, but it is even better to know what you are retiring to. Some people want to write their last check on the day they die and have it bounce. Others may want to see all of the lighthouses in America during their retirement. Others still might be afraid to spend at all for fear of spending their posterity's inheritance. Whatever your Purpose, there needs to be Planning to support it.
There are five aspects of financial planning that every financial plan should consider: Income, Investments, Taxation, Health, and Legacy. This comprehensive approach seeks to explore every area and factor that could affect you during retirement. Proper Planning in each of these areas, supports your Purpose.
The final aspect of the process, is your Portfolio. Your Portfolio is certainly not an afterthought, but it does fall in naturally after exploring your Purpose and doing the Planning to match. There are many different products and solutions that can all represent parts of a Portfolio, but their place in your financial plan can only be discovered through the first two parts of the process.
