Components of Your Plan

While no two plans are alike, the following are illustrations of the general components of the typical financial plans we create.  Your specific plan will include the relevant components based on your individual circumstances, and may require additional analysis outside of the plan summary itself (e.g., concentrated stock positions, ISOs/NSOs, sale of family business). Your plan is always accessible through the Beacon Hill portal or through the Beacon Hill app (iOS/Android).

The information provided herein is for informational and illustrative purposes only.  It is not intended to be, and should not be construed as, investment or planning advice.  Beacon Hill’s financial planning and investment advisory services are provided pursuant to an advisory agreement with our clients.

Benefits of a well-designed plan:

  • Focus goals in retirement and how these will be funded.
  • Address concerns and expectations for retirement.
  • Identify things that could pose a threat to the retirement goal and develop mitigating strategies to minimize and/or manage them.
  • Be more educated, confident and in control of your financial future.
