Biltmore keeps you up to date on the latest changes to estate law, and how potential changes may affect your planning.
We can help strategize to establish an estate plan, pointing you towards suitable trust concepts. We can call on our network of estate planning attorneys to review any existing documents you have – even help negotiate fees and conduct due diligence on local estate planners.
Our goal is to ensure that your estate plan works with your financial plan, and your instructions are carried out as you intended.
When estate planning requires you to engage a corporate trust company, Biltmore will partner with them in their capacity as trustee, while we continue to manage your assets according to your wishes from generation to generation.
Planning for a secure retirement means taking stock of your retirement preparedness and what you expect from your “second act” in life.
Your Biltmore Financial Advisor can help you determine how close you are to retirement, how long you can expect to live in retirement, what sources of income you will have available, and how you can protect against market risk, rising healthcare costs, taxes and other factors that will affect the quality of your retired life.
Our goal is not just to help you accumulate a retirement nest egg that meets a magic “number.” But also to secure a steady stream of retirement income so you can maintain the lifestyle you want in retirement for as long as you live.
To that end, Biltmore uses sophisticated retirement planning software to help analyze success rates in retirement. We examine your savings, investments, pensions, mortgage structure, risk profile, social security and other vital information to determine what changes could enhance your financial security in retirement.
These tools also allow us to stress test your retirement plan in severe bear market conditions or periods of high inflation or low interest rates to judge its susceptibility to factors beyond your control.
