Private Client Group - Personal Financial Management

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 Financial Wealth 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 teams 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.

At each level, clients are provided with both the initial analysis and strategy creation and ongoing monitoring and progress reporting packages that are combined to provide clients with ongoing, intrinsic insight into their financial roadmap.
