At 360 Financial, our goal is to take all the pieces of your financial puzzle and put them in place. To do so, we utilize a proprietary process that integrates wealth management with risk and debt management, income and tax planning, and philanthropy for successful families, professionals, and business owners. We call this the LifeWealth Process.
Our philosophy is that a true comprehensive financial plan should be converged and integrated around all facets of your life. We know that if it’s not fully integrated, it’s flawed.
We design our portfolios, called 360 iQ Investment Strategies, differently than other firms. Our 360 iQ Investment Strategies maintain a disciplined process that is focused on maximum diversification, minimal cost, maximum tax-efficiency, and low turnover.
Our 360 iQ Investment Strategies combine our “core” big picture macro thinking with a “satellite” relative strength/momentum process. The 360 team also meets weekly for investment committee meetings, which create actionable insights for us to thoughtfully iterate your portfolio so you hit your goals.
The cost of college is rising each year, so starting a 529 Plan provides the potential for TAX-FREE growth to help pay for your children or grandchildren’s college expenses. Remember, that a 529 Plan is an investment, so just like any other investment, it will fluctuate and the more time it has to grow, the better.
There is no right or wrong amount to save but setting goals is critical. How much do you hope to contribute for college? From there, we’ll help you set up an account and figure out what that means for a monthly or annual contribution.
Estate tax planning helps preserve your assets for your heirs and the causes that are important to you. When you understand how estate taxes are calculated and what will likely be owed on your estate, you can prepare yourself for these costs and not be surprised later.
There are two sets of estate taxes in place at the moment: Minnesota Estate Tax and Federal Estate Tax. If the value of your estate reaches a certain level, it may incur taxes (commonly called death taxes) both in Minnesota and at the federal level.
At 360 Financial we realize that retirement planning is more than simply saving for retirement. It also includes preserving your wealth and turning that wealth into an income stream that will be used to maintain your lifestyle throughout retirement and potentially leave a legacy to your family and community.
One of the most important parts of your comprehensive financial plan is deciding how you will preserve your assets in the future. When you are working this hard to build your wealth, you want to plan your financial steps so you won’t lose this money in unforeseen circumstances.
At 360 Financial, we have the ability to use sophisticated planning software to assist in projecting your current and future tax brackets.
