Dependable Income, Steadfast Advice
At McAdams Group, LLC we strive to teach clients about a universe of investment options designed to generate portfolio growth and possible income through interest and dividends. Many income options are considered to be conservative; this is income that can be spent, or reinvested to grow your money organically, or – as we like to say – “the old fashioned way.”
Our number one mission is client education. We want to work with you to ensure that you make informed, educated decisions that will best suit your current needs and enable you to achieve your long-term financial goals. We will teach you the basics of investing, the importance of financial defense, the essential facts about market history, what you need to know about interest rates, bond funds, and strategic investments, and the difference between income and cash flow.
At the same time, we will teach you how to avoid the common financial mistakes that typically undermine so many retirement plans, mistakes such as inefficient asset allocation, overpaying on taxes, and a lack of catastrophic health care planning.
At McAdams Group, LLC we believe the best client is a knowledgeable client. We believe peace of mind comes from understanding your options and from working regularly with your advisor to choose the options that will work best for you and your loved ones – now and into the future.
McAdams Group, LLC wants to assist you in identifying and reaching your own financial goals. We follow a seven-step educational process that helps you identify your objectives and develop the strategies that will help you reach those goals.
