Thomas A. Stedman is a tax and financial planning specialist in the Private Clients group. His areas of concentration include financial planning, individual income tax planning and preparation, investment consulting and retirement planning.
I work closely with our team of planners to provide clients with timely answers to their complex financial questions. We provide comprehensive financial planning services for high net worth individuals, corporate executives and other individuals seeking assistance in the areas of retirement, income tax, investments, education funding, employee benefits and various other matters.
Our group uses sophisticated financial planning software to run various scenarios and help our clients plan for retirement. By gathering detailed information about each client and making educated assumptions about growth, spending and lifestyle, we are able to analyze numerous possible outcomes and offer advice on improving their financial future. We hope to add reassurance and certainty to an uncertain future.
Much of my time is spent researching and tracking our clients’ investments. I assess new client’s risk tolerance, determine the proper asset allocation and recommend securities to help balance their portfolios. I monitor their asset mix and ensure the investments are aligned to the client’s investment time frame, financial needs and comfort with volatility.
I have been following the major changes in Social Security benefits and their impact on our clients. Thoroughly understanding the unique situations of each client and keeping them educated on how to optimize this benefit is an important concern for me.
