The pursuit of dreams is something we all share. Dreams like generating income and preserving wealth for retirement, purchasing a vacation home and funding your children's or grandchildren's education. And, of course, there's the dream of leaving a legacy to the next generation. Your Financial Advisor can help you succeed the right way, with a personalized wealth management plan that goes beyond investments.
Wealth & Taxes: Planning for 2014
Strategies to Help Navigate an Uncertain Landscape
Planning for the Long Term
Setting objectives, getting a full picture of what you own and how to protect it, and monitoring your progress toward your goals—these are just some key elements to the planning process.
As an individual investor at Morgan Stanley, you can benefit from the market insight, global presence, risk management resources and analytical rigor that drive our institutional relationships.
There are many things that can jeopardize your financial well-being: loss of a job, damage to property, market downturns, just to name a few.
Looking at both sides of your balance sheet is essential to informed decision making.
Philanthropy forms a link between you and the organizations that best express your values and your vision. It can also be a powerful teaching tool for young people.
Transfer of Wealth
Wealth can bring families together — or push them apart. Educating the next generation, establishing shared goals, putting a well thought out estate plan into effect — these are a few strategies that can make wealth a unifying force.
Money and Values
How you spend, save and invest grows out of the values that are most important to you and your family. Working with a Financial Advisor can help you focus on your goals and the strategies that can help you achieve and protect them.
Your Wealth and Your Business
For many business owners, the firm they built or acquired is their most significant asset. An effective wealth plan needs to take account of both personal and business wealth.
