Nearing Retirement

Capital Advantage will review your current assets and income that you’ve earmarked for retirement and craft a customized plan designed to make your retirement a time of personal growth and opportunity–balancing your immediate financial needs with your goals for the future.

The goal is for you to have a financial plan designed to help ensure that you achieve financial independence when you want.


The death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Complicating the loss are the often-confusing financial issues that need to be dealt with now and in the future.

Most new widows have a lot of questions about financial matters. We believe that our role is to provide the support you need to help you understand and manage your new financial situation, and to help you better position yourself for a more secure financial future.


The biggest fear for most retirees is outliving their money. An effective retirement plan can help provide peace of mind, taking into consideration factors such as inflation, taxes, investment performance, and appropriate withdrawals.

Part of our planning process is to review your assets and sources of income, and then plan ongoing savings or withdrawal strategies to help make your money last.


The end of a marriage can be emotionally and financially challenging. We are here to support women who need to restructure their financial futures.  

We’ll help you determine your income needs, take a fresh look at your retirement accounts, investments, etc., and create a new personalized financial plan to help you move forward with clarity and confidence.
