In your twenties, saving for retirement may seem like putting money away for a far-away event, but you will see the powerful effects of compounding as your savings grows over time.
30’s & 40’s Checklist
As life increases in complexity during your thirties and forties, you may be more interested in wisely investing your funds and finding an investment allocation that fits you.
Keep yourself organized by gathering a list of your assets and liabilities, reviewing your insurance policies, monitoring your credit report, and making home repairs while you are still working.
As you approach or begin retirement, ensure your financial investments match your goals at this stage of life. It is especially important to monitor your budget and pay close attention to your cash flows.
In the summer of 1982, Toby Levitt and John Bird found themselves discussing flaws prevalent among financial firms nationwide. “Although there was lip service to the idea of putting the client first,” recalls Bird, “at the end of the day, advisors got paid for selling a product.”
The two envisioned a firm free from any product sales agenda, a firm where clients truly come first. This vision became a reality later that year when Levitt and Bird founded Albion Financial Group: a fee-only Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) legally and culturally committed to each client’s best interest. A fee-only pioneer, Albion has become a nationally recognized, award-winning investment manager and wealth advisor. And, no surprise, the client still comes first.
