DIY or delegated portfolio management, retirement planning, and financial planning for tech-savvy pre-retirees and recent retirees

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." --Benjamin Franklin

My services are most cost-effective for tech-savvy pre-retirees and retirees with household incomes of $250,000 or more and/or total financial net worth (including current employer retirement plans) of $500,000 or more.
