Accureta Wealth Management™, iA Private Wealth™ financially advises clients on their individual and business needs.  We have a fiduciary responsibility to work for you all the time. We believe comprehensive personal wealth planning, supported by unbiased advice, collaboration and transparency, is the key to meeting your needs and helping you achieve your financial goals. We focus on the financial priorities to create a financial plan that’s tailored to you.

What’s The Price Of Financial Peace Of Mind?

The value of financial advice can be measured in several ways. There’s the growth in your portfolio that your advisor helps you realize. Then there are the intangibles –from building a personal holistic wealth management plan to helping you organize, manage and simplify your financial affairs so you can confidently take steps towards achieving financial independence.

Annual returns are a straightforward way to think about value. But how do you quantify the intangibles? What’s the cost associated with prudence?

Comprehensive wealth planning

is how we describe as the process of creating strategies to meet your life goals.  Covering the whole process we separate the parts in : Financial Management, Investment Planning,  Risk Management, Tax Planning, Retirement Planning, and Estate Planning. Each component covers an aspect separately to run the process smoothly, but in reality these components are inextricably connected. Thus, our recommendations always consider that fact, which differentiates the work we do from most financial advisors.

INVESTMENT ADVISORY AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT

TAX PLANNING

The principles of tax planning form an integral part of our wealth-building strategy.  The overall objective is to structure your affairs to legally minimize the amount of tax you have to pay. We will help you accomplish this by adhering to what we call the 4D’s of taxation: deduct, defer, diminish and divide.

  • Deduct –maximize all tax deductions and credits.
  • Defer – Defer paying tax as long as possible. A tax dollar deferred is often a dollar saved.
  • Diminish – Position investments in investment vehicles, which attract the least amount of tax, having full regard for your risk tolerance and asset allocation strategy.
  • Divide – Split income among family member to the maximum degree possible while considering other personal objectives.

DEBT SERVICES AND CASH MANAGEMENT

Being fiscally responsible is the foundation for accumulating and preserving wealth. As your Wealth Advisor will work with you to ensure you’re living within your means and setting attainable investment goals to build your financial independence.

During our schedule reviews we will evaluate your current and future debt obligations and its serviceability. This means, evaluating monthly cash outflow for fixed expenses both immediate or in the near future (like mortgage, personal loans, car loans, planning a bigger purchase in foreseeable future – vacation home, education or to draw retirement income) and variable expenses on discretionary spending  (entertainment, travel, lifestyle spending) .

Planning future expenses in advance can help identify the source of funds which will fulfill the future liability obligation and not leaving things to chance as they come due. Either you will pay from own source of savings, take new debt to pay or sell an asset to pay.

ESTATE PLANNING

Purpose of Estate Planning

is to plan for the effective enjoyment, ownership, management and disposition of assets during life, upon death and after death. Fundamental also to the process is to maximize the estate for heirs while minimizing taxes and other expenses.  Thus, Estate Planning is the creation of wealth, the preservation of wealth and the conservation of wealth at time of death.

The implementation of an Estate Planning Strategy is achieved using a variety of methods.  The fundamentals of estate planning are the execution of a Will and Powers of Attorney (for Property and Personal Care).  More comprehensive estate planning might include trusts, estate freezes, holding companies, transfers or gifts of property, joint title or life interest in properties, and spousal trusts, just to name a few.

Before a strategy becomes effective, the appropriate legal documents must be executed.  Lack of careful planning or faulty execution of legal documents can alter or even invalidate the intentions of a well thought out strategy.
