As today's economic, financial and tax landscapes become increasingly complex, a comprehensive approach to financial planning and investment management - one that considers your entire financial picture - can lead to clearer more confident financial decisions.  That's because every financial decision, from your investment choices to financing a home, saving for retirement, funding a child's education, planning your legacy, or business planning - also carry important tax implications.  Making financial decisions that ignore important components of your overall financial picture can lead to unintended consequences and ineffective outcomes.
