    As someone with considerable savings, you’ve worked hard your whole life to build a sizeable nest egg for you and your family. And you probably have some big ideas for what you want to accomplish in the second half of your life…

    For example, do you want to be in the position to buy a vacation home? Or do you hope to travel the world? Maybe you’d like to set up a college fund for your children or grandchildren? Or maybe you want to give to a cause close to your heart?

  7. Your Smart Retirement Age

    Your best days are still ahead of you!

    As an individual with significant savings, you’ve worked hard your whole life to give yourself—and your family—certain advantages. And one of those advantages includes having the ability to stop working once you reach a certain age.

    But for you, the stakes for planning and executing a successful retirement are even higher than they are for most ordinary Americans.

    For one, there’s more money involved.

    Second, when you have a high net worth, you typically have a higher standard of living to maintain, too. Which means you’ll need more money to fund it.

    So, how do you know when you’ve got enough money put away to safely retire?

  8. Top-10 Tax-Friendly Tax Havens

    Go ahead—dream a little…

    You’ve worked hard your whole life. So, now it’s time to dream a little about where you’ll enjoy the next 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years of your life.

    Maybe you’ve always dreamed of living near the water. Or perhaps you want to move closer to the grandkids. Or maybe you just want to find a quiet place where you can maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.

  9. Your Smart, Personalized Financial Plan

    Living the ultimate “good life” starts with a smart, personalized financial plan

    A smart, personalized financial plan is basically road map that charts the course for how you’re going to pay for the next 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years of your life.

    Everyone’s map looks different. And everyone’s final destination looks different, too.

    For example, maybe you have a sizable nest egg, but you want to retire in your early 60s. Or maybe you plan to keep working throughout your 60s, but you want to set aside enough money to pay for your grandkids’ college education or to splurge on a big vacation home in Florida.

    Having a smart, personalized financial plan can help get you there.

  10. Top-10 Ways to Build Your Net Worth

    Your Net Worth Matters Way More than Flashy Cars, Homes and Trips

    Lots of Americans drive flashy $100,000 cars, live in sprawling homes, and take amazing trips around the world every year. But those outward signs of wealth can be very misleading.

    In fact, you can have—and do—all those things, but still have significant debt with very little saved for retirement. It’s actually a very common finding in America today.

    On the other hand, an individual with significant savings is the one true indicator of real wealth and financial success. Because it means you have far more assets than liabilities.
