Who are our clients?

Primarily, a select group of professionals and business owners, who among other things aspire to a work optional lifestyle and simplification of their financial life.  Alison Wealth Management doesn't try to be all things for all people, but rather all things for some people and it's all about right fit.

What do our client's want from us?

Some of our clients are approaching or already in retirement and they want to ensure they do not outlive their money.

Other clients of ours have no interest in retiring, but they go to work because they want to, not because they have to. They are in their peak earning years and want to ensure they are maximizing their wealth while minimizing their taxes.

These clients hire us for guidance when they have a life event that could create challenges or opportunities to their financial situation. These events commonly include such things as starting a family, a new job opportunity, sudden wealth through company stock or options, feeling like you are paying too much in taxes, starting a new business, preparing for retirement, or a death in the family.

How do we get our clients to their goals?

Over the last 14 years, we have developed and refined a process that puts all the pieces of the financial puzzle together for clients as their life unfolds and needs evolve.  It's called The Bucket Plan®. 

The Bucket Plan® Helps You:

  • Secure your family's investment legacy
  • Maximize your income while minimizing your taxes
  • Achieve a work optional lifestyle
  • Face the future with anticipation rather than apprehension when it comes to achieving your bucket list
