Personal Financial Management

  • Do you have enough to retire?
  • Is your portfolio tax efficient?
  • How seamless will you transfer your wealth?
  • Are you maximizing Social Security/Medicare benefits?
  • Are you protected from the unexpected?
  • Will your assets outlive you?

Marcum's Personal Financial Management group is focused on your total financial wellness.

Whereas a tax accountant offers tax return preparation and planning and a financial advisor reviews retirement and financial planning, our professionals work together to unlock strategies aimed at enhancing your financial well-being.

Our tax, financial planning, and legal expertise cater to your specific needs and incorporate a combination of integrated services, strategies and planning techniques to provide you with optimal guidance and consultation, monitoring and oversight.

This "one-stop" approach allows the advisors from each discipline to work together, resulting in more expedient and beneficial consultation. We aim to move beyond tax preparation and portfolio management to become the planner, advice giver, problem solver and intellectual capital warehouse.
