Michael is a 75 year-old Veteran of the Vietnam War. Michael is married to his longtime sweetheart Mary. The couple is retired and spend time with their three grown children and eight grandchildren. The couple chose to work with BayView Private Wealth because of their specialized knowledge and process around working with military families and Veterans
Michael wants to create a plan to make sure the family is well-cared for and to keep Mary safe. He also wants Mary to maintain the same standards of living she is used to.
After identifying their main goals and objectives while expressing their respective concerns and underlying fears, Michael and Mary began working with BayView Private Wealth by scheduling a series of 1 to 2 hour meetings over a 3-month period. Each meeting was devoted to one element of their total financial plan. In this way, the couple felt more confident and had the space and time to ask important questions and avoided the feeling of being too overwhelmed. Technology was used to schedule virtual meetings, and to analyze current holdings.
Scenario planning was used to run certain stress tests against their financial plan under certain conditions. After running the analysis and completing their entire financial and estate plan, Michael & Mary finally purchased their dream lakehouse. They are building lifelong memories with the entire family and both have peace of mind about their legacy and what their future holds.
