Planning
Essentials

One-time, objective, trusted, professional advice when you want it, tailored to fit your occasional needs.


Advisor
on-Demand

CastleBay's Advisor On-Demand provides you with a suite of professional financial planning services that you can individually select based on your needs. We are here to help you, whether you want to determine a suitable and optimal asset allocation so that you can take care of your investments on your own, or require a comprehensive financial plan.

For instance, if you currently have a financial advisor you may want a second opinion to see if your portfolio is being managed according to a reasonable investment strategy, given your current age, investor profile and future retirement goals. You may also be wondering if your portfolio holds investments that are suitable for you, or you may not understand them as much as you would like to. Furthermore, is your advisor implementing your strategy properly? How much are you really paying in fees and expenses, and in your opinion, is the service and communication that you receive worth it? Also, you may be wondering if you can retire in a certain number of years, and what that may look like.

Outlined below are the financial planning areas that we can help you with, either on a one-time or re-occurring basis. There is no obligation to engage us for ongoing services afterwards.
