At Roof Eidam Maycock Peralta (REMP), our approach goes beyond financial planning — we provide life planning. Working with you, we identify your broad life goals — the key factors that make you happy. We then develop and refine a financial strategy that will help you pursue your interest. What ultimately matters most is not the securities you select, but whether your financial portfolio enables you to live the life you envision.
We also believe you should know and trust those who help manage your investment portfolio. We accept clients by referral only. We are a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA), registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. We manage over $700 million in advisory assets for more than 300 individual and institutional clients. Our process is comprehensive, seeking to balance income and investment planning, tax management, retirement planning, estate planning, risk management, and other key elements of financial planning. We draw on deep experience and knowledge — our four partners share an aggregate of more than 100 years in financial services.
As portfolio advisors, we align our interests with yours. Our mission is to help preserve and build your financial security and prosperity through comprehensive financial planning and disciplined asset management. To fulfill this mission, we uphold the highest standards of professional ethics and integrity, and provide stellar client service.
Our approach balances your need for immediate income with longer-term asset accumulation goals. We begin by analyzing your household budget and cash flows, tax situation, and investment preferences. We subscribe to the philosophy of “paying yourself first” by establishing a lucid capital accumulation and investment strategy for surplus cash flows to build assets. REMP provides sophisticated asset management to help optimize your portfolio's total return for your given risk tolerance. After an exhaustive analysis of your risk capacity, investment objectives and time horizons, we construct a personalized portfolio strategy designed to meet your financial planning needs.
Each client's desires and requirements are unique. Many clients no longer desire to “work, work, work...retire.” We help our clients achieve financial independence, so that they can choose how they pursue their work, volunteer, and leisure goals. We work with existing retirement plans and/or install new ones to help maximize all available capital accumulation and distribution strategies.
While grappling with the intricacies of each client's tax strategies, we keep your broader life planning goals in the foreground. We work closely with your tax advisors to help minimize tax liabilities in all stages of your life via a variety of income, gift, and estate tax planning strategies. We monitor each client's evolving tax scenario and adjust portfolios accordingly to minimize ongoing tax consequences of their investments wherever possible.
We are involved in multi-generational life planning for many of our clients' families. In estate planning, we work with our clients' estate attorneys to ensure that they establish and maintain mechanisms to facilitate the efficient transfer of wealth. We work to minimize taxes and maximize benefits to each client's intended recipients, including both individual and charitable beneficiaries, whether via lifetime or testamentary bequests. We are well versed in the complexities of estate planning, including various trusts and insurance vehicles, and we help coordinate our clients' estate administrations.
Protecting your health, family, home, and assets is a crucial part of life planning. We help you manage risk by determining your appropriate amount of insurance coverage in a variety of areas, including property and casualty, health, disability income, long-term care and life insurances. We help eliminate risk management deficiencies by implementing suitable and competitively priced insurance policies. Our holistic approach also analyzes any employee and government insurance benefits for which you may be eligible.
In addition to these core disciplines, we provide counsel in all relevant areas of financial planning, including real estate, education, familial and legacy planning.
As an independent firm, Roof Eidam Maycock Peralta provides unbiased financial planning and investment advice based on a thorough understanding of your unique circumstances and philosophy regarding your wealth.
REMP manages portfolios employing both strategic and tactical asset allocations, based on current economic and market conditions. We strive to provide competitive returns, while also striving to achieve this performance with less volatility than the relevant benchmarks, continually monitoring your portfolios, and employing risk management tools to help mitigate volatility whenever appropriate.
Our partners have decades of experience in financial planning, and continually enhance that experience through a rigorous program of continuing education.
