The best time to start investing for retirement is now, whatever your age. Time is your ally. One of the biggest factors affecting the growth of a retirement nest egg is compounding, and the benefits of compounding tend to be greater over longer periods of time.

At every age and stage of your life, your financial needs are uniquely your own. Yet the basics remain the same — focusing on what you can control and ignoring all the rest.
A separately managed account uses strategic and alternative allocation models to establish an individualized client portfolio in accordance with the client’s particular investment objective and risk tolerance. Depending on the models selected, the underlying assets may include exchange traded funds (ETFs), exchange traded notes (ETNs), other exchange traded products (ETPs), and/or mutual funds. Each client has an individualized portfolio and owns the underlying securities in his or her account.
We believe that investors are best served concentrating their efforts on what is within their control, rather than what is out of their control. These are all things that can cause anguish for investors and often times consumes their thoughts. Yet as investors, these things are completely out of your control.
You can determine what level of risk you are willing to assume and make choices about asset allocation. You can review investment alternatives with an eye toward investment expenses, tax efficiency as well as transparency concerning the investment’s holdings. These are all things that can have a tremendous impact on investment success.
» Providing a platform to access well known money managers
As a practical matter, most money managers don’t allow individual investors to invest with them directly, unless they have a very large portfolio. However, a client can access institutional-level money management firms with a much lower minimum investment using an advisor as an intermediary to gain access to a managed account provider.
» Developing a risk profile questionnaire and setting asset allocation guides
A written investment program suited to the client’s risk tolerance, time horizon, and investment goals. Furthermore, this analysis is based on the client’s complete financial picture. Armed with this information, we are uniquely positioned to not only recommend investment strategies (including how specific vehicles are allocated), but wealth distribution strategies, and other important lifestyle concerns.
» Setting goals and making adjustments as necessary
We meet periodically with clients to discuss the progress being made toward investment objectives. If a life-changing event has occurred and our clients’ objectives have changed, our team will update his or her investment portfolio to help ensure that our client is still on track to meet his or her new goals.
» Monitoring money managers
Money manager research reports provide a quarterly score and commentary on the managers to help keep you abreast of developments and changes. In the event that a particular manager drifts from their designated investment discipline, or fall below our quality standards, we have the authority to remove that manager.
» Being a fee-based financial advisor
There are many benefits our clients enjoy in terms of advice, guidance, accountability, and helping them stay the course. According to an annual study by Dalbar, a Boston based financial services research firm, from 1986 – 2005, the “average equity investor” earned a modest 3.9% annually. That’s a half of a percent less than cash, and nowhere near the 11.9% that the S&P 500 earned annually for the same time period. It has often been suggested that the main reason for the disparity in returns is that investors, when left to their own devices, often make decisions based on emotion. This is a clear indication of how professional advice can help keep investor’ behavior from affecting the returns they actually earn.
Saving for retirement requires careful planning and systematic saving. Whether you’re just getting started with your retirement savings, seeking to rollover a 401(k) from a previous employer, or looking to supplement and diversify investments in an existing portfolio, NastGroup Financial works closely with individuals to develop a strategy to help meet their unique retirement goals.

Among other things, saving for retirement requires careful planning and systematic savings. Besides working toward the retirement you’ve always dreamed of, contributing to a retirement plan has benefits you can enjoy today such as helping to lower your tax bill and watching your earnings grow tax-deferred. Depending on what you choose, most retirement plans also offer great flexibility, so your contributions can be invested to help you meet personal objectives.
NastGroup Financial can also provide consultation and comparisons to help you establish the right group retirement plan for your company to achieve the following benefits for you and your employees:

Our team at NastGroup Financial will help you determine your potential long term care needs and how long your current assets might last.
You may eventually need long term care services to help you with your personal care needs. This kind of care involves what is called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). This may include dressing, bathing, eating, walking assistance, transferring to the toilet, and many other aspects of support.
Some other long term care services called Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) can include money management, meals, emergency response, housework, transportation, and administering medication.
Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to go. Despite our best efforts, accidents happen and there’s nothing anyone can do about them except insure against them. NastGroup Financial offers a wide range of insurance options and can walk you through the different types to help you choose.
An important part of a sound financial plan includes life insurance. It provides a valuable death benefit to your beneficiaries upon your death. Your beneficiaries can then use this money to replace some of the income you would have earned to help pay off debts or other expenses.
Your financial security could affect your loved ones as much as or more than it affects you. Life insurance offers protection from life’s unforeseen risks, and the power to leverage assets so you can accomplish more.The type of insurance that is right for you depends on many factors, including your budget, the amount of coverage you need, and the length of time you’d like the coverage to last.
Many Life insurance policies have tax advantages and flexibility to help you meet your changing needs. I offer life insurance and financial protection products spanning traditional, term, universal, permanent life insurance, as well as individual and group financial protection products.
At every age and stage of your life, your financial needs are uniquely your own. Your financial health also goes beyond just long-term investments and savings. Wisely handling everyday finances can also play a role in achieving your long-term goals. NastGroup Financial can work with you to assess your risk tolerance and set up the processes & tools to assist to effectively manage your finances.
