Our Framework

We define wealth management as a formula.

We make it as easy as 1, 2, 3.


Our Proven Wealth Management Formula
Wealth Management = Investment Consulting + Advanced Planning + Relationship Management

Investment Consulting is the astute management of investments over time to achieve financial goals.

Advanced Planning goes beyond investments to look at all the other aspects that important to your financial life.

Relationship Management is the final element.  We work to foster solid, trusted relationships with clients & other financial professionals.

Retirees

How soon can we afford to downsize our careers or elect to fully retire and reasonably be expected to maintain our standard of living throughout our retirement years? Now that we are finally reaching our retirement years, how should we modify our investment plan to provide more stability and higher income at the expense of higher growth and volatility. What assumptions are prudent to make about inflation, rate of return on investments, longevity?

Bill founded Mainsail with a passion forged from the tragedy of personal loss. After realizing that true independent, unbiased advice was not readily available after the tragic passing of his father (himself a business owner), Bill was called into becoming a source for information and advice to families unfamiliar with the opaque and often times corrupt nature of the financial services industry.

Bill's passion quickly grew beyond the basics of financial planning and into the specialized niche of advanced planning for business owners.  The process he developed goes beyond investment consulting and includes wealth enhancement + wealth transfer + charitable planning.  Each of these areas include multiple subsets in which the Mainsail process drives value to its client families.

Bill recognizes that the health and happiness of the individual, their family, and the business are inextricably linked and can only be impacted by working on the global relationships between these three key areas. His goal is to create the "missing advisor" for owners to work with across disciplines.

Bill is a fan of anything that flies and floats and as such is an avid pilot and fisherman. His one retirement goal is for his primary mode of transportation to have a propeller.
