Managing Risk to Reach Your Retirement Goals

See what our clients are saying about Jeff Gurman

“Jeff is a true wealth management guru.”

“My husband and I found Jeff to be incredibly patient. He spent a significant amount of time listening to our goals for our children and retirement. He recommended multiple strategies to help with liquidity and safety as well as building a tax free retirement. Jeff also throughly explained how we could convert our IRA’s and invest our liquid assets to meet our future needs. Jeff is a true wealth management guru. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to lower their taxes, protect their assets and build for their retirement.”

“Jeff is an amazing source of support and insight!”

“Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and talented at his profession but what really makes him exceptional is that he is filled with compassion, generosity and is truly an amazing person! I am so thankful for having been introduced to Jeff earlier this year. I have always felt very uneasy when discussing money matters. I tried to avoid it entirely. However, it was time that I talk to someone and my friend convinced me to meet with Jeff. From the moment I met Jeff I felt at ease (which is rare for me). He took the time to really get to know and understand me as a person before he even started to ask anything about my current financial situation. He explained in great detail all of my possible options and he made sure that I actually understood everything that we discussed. I learned A LOT after our first meeting which made me feel more confident in being able to move forward with the process and to be able to make smart, educated financial decisions. Jeff has been an amazing source of support, insight and especially positivity! I would absolutely recommend his services!!”

“Jeff has always taken time to understand our goals and concerns”

“I have been working with Jeff since 1994, from single life to married life, to a larger combined family. He has always taken time to understand our goals and concerns and helped us manage and grow our wealth over the past 22 years. Jeff is also an expert when it comes to insurance planning and I sleep well at night knowing my family is protected in case of an unforeseen disaster.”

Dan P.

Executive at Sappi NA

“Jeff deeply cares about his clients”

“Jeff has been my family’s financial planner and go to “insurance guy” for the past 25 years (since 1991) and I retired this week knowing I have the right plan in place for my family. I have introduced Jeff to many of my close friends and coworkers, as I know he deeply cares about his clients. Jeff’s insurance recommendations made a difference for us and especially for the family of a CHP officer who I introduced him to before the officer’s untimely death. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is planning for retirement or needs to protect their income or assets!”

“Jeff helps us achieve the best possible results”

“Jeff is very detail oriented and goes the extra mile to ensure a great experience for all of his clients. As an intern I found myself comparing and contrasting many strategies daily to ensure each and every client was receiving the best policy for their needs. Not only does Jeff establish great client relationships, but he did so while maintaining great employee relationships as well. As an intern I found him to be very personable and understanding of each team member’s individual needs. He works with each team member personally to help us achieve the best possible results for his clientele as well as reach our personal goals.”

All clients should take steps to have their wealth protected from creditors. Unfortunately, most do not. Asset protection doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. On this site you will learn how exposed your assets are to creditors and how to protect them.



For many people, funding a tax deferred 401(k) or IRA can be more tax hostile than tax favorable. Most people are unaware of a tax-free retirement tool that can be a much better retirement tool than tax-deferred plans.



From 1999-2008 the S&P 500 stock index was negative (a lost decade). If you are interested in avoiding downturns in the stock market while receiving a guaranteed rate of return coupled with a guaranteed income for life benefit.

Our firm is unique because we always put our client’s needs first. That may seem like an obvious statement, but as we’ve found out when reviewing several new client’s previous advice, many times the advice advisors give is what’s best for them and not their clients.

Our firm prides itself in its knowledge on a broad spectrum of concepts and products. Even so, we know it is impossible for one person or one firm to know it all. That is why we have strategic alliances with some of the top law firms in the country as well as other top experts in the finance and insurance fields.

Our goal is to be “the” place a client can turn to get answers/help on asset protection, income, estate, and capital gains tax reduction, growing wealth in the least risky manner possible, estate planning, business/corporate planning issues and much more.

We hope you enjoy our website and find time to both read various parts of the site as well as watch several of the educational presentations.


What is Asset Protection?

Most asset protection “gurus” believe asset protection revolves around helping clients who have money protect that money from your “typical” creditor from a negligence suit.

While that’s important, such gurus forget that the #1 creditor clients have every year is the IRS (taxes). Also, people are much more likely to lose money in the stock market in any given year than to be sued for negligence. The goal of a “good” asset protection plan is to make sure “all” of your assets are protected from “all” creditors. This is the specialty of our firm as you will learn when you review our site.

Predicting The Future

What is the “best” way to grow your wealth for retirement? Is it through tax-deferred tools like 401(k) plans or IRAs?  Is it by investing in stocks, mutual funds, index funds, cash value life insurance, annuities, bonds, etc.?

How much risk should you take to reach your financial goals?  Our answer is that clients should take the least amount of risk necessary to reach their financial goals (unfortunately most Americans do not take this approach and pay the consequences when the stock market tanks).

This website discusses many unique wealth building tools so readers can educate themselves and make “informed” decisions about the “best” way to grow their wealth.
