Retirement Planning


The principle goal of most individuals is saving enough for retirement. However, the day you retire is not the finish line. Rather, retirement is a new chapter in life that must be properly planned for and structured to accomplish your financial goals.

We develop customized retirement plans for each individual or family that are intended to help define, monitor and achieve their financial and retirement goals. This process includes tax planning, income and distribution planning, cash flow management, education funding, investment management and estate planning.

We work with each client to formulate realistic retirement goals based on an analysis of their anticipated needs. From this we will develop an Asset Allocation Analysis that compiles their needs and goals and generate an allocation based on their risk tolerance, time frame, and other factors.

Our analysis includes determining distribution methods and selecting how to fund goals using qualified and non-qualified accounts. We help manage and determine when it is most beneficial to begin receiving income streams such as Social Security.

For clients with required minimum distributions from qualified accounts we will calculate the amount needed to be distributed each year and manage the timing of the distribution, the amount of withholding necessary, and if beneficial to distribute assets in kind if cash is not needed.

We assist clients during periods of transition when they have retirement plans such as a 401k at their former employer. We will coordinate the rollover of plans such as these to ensure these assets remain in their tax deferred structure.

Ultimately our goal is to help our clients retire successfully with as much ease and enjoyment as possible for them.

In 2017, AWM Global Advisors was ranked by Advisory HQ as one of the top 10 Wealth Advisors in San Diego. AdvisoryHQ considered at a wide range of factors in the selection process including fiduciary duty, independence, transparency, level of customized service and years of experience amongst others. Details of the selection process can be found in the link below. Firms do not pay a fee to be selected nor are they advised that they are under consideration until after the selection is made. No employees or clients were interviewed during the selection process. Third-party recognition from rating services are no guarantee of future investment success. Working with a highly-rated advisor does not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance. Methodology for Ranking Top Advisors in the U.S and U.K.
