Women in Transition
From career-woman to wife/partner, and from caring mom to single-motherhood, separation and divorce – women go through more transitions during a lifetime than most of us realize. And through it all, women often juggle several balls simultaneously, doing the best they can, while often hoping for the best. However, LIFE HAPPENS, and that’s why we’re here to help women navigate through all of those transitions safely and securely.
Why Transition Planning and Support is Important
Women are often considered the more “resilient” of the sexes – and for good reason. But with so many different hats to wear – some of them simultaneously – there’s always the risk that you might make some missteps.
Whether it’s the challenge of starting a family, managing a career, paying for that new home, funding your child’s education, dealing with separation or divorce, or acting as caregiver to an aging parent – you need help as you transition through all of those roles. And that’s exactly what our caring, experienced and qualified professionals are here to provide you.
What We Can Do For You
Our multi-disciplinary teams come together to offer women the right type of transitioning planning and support. It could be sage advice through a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA™), the measured wisdom of a Certified Financial Planner (CFP™), the knowledge of a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS), the expertise of a Certified Estate Planner™ (CEP®), or the experience of a veteran Insurance planning professional. No matter what your needs are, we have the experience to help you through every transition in your life.
Here’s a preview of what our Women in Transition planning and support service covers:
- Preparing you for transition: Our experience, backed by statistical evidence, shows us that most women aren’t as “plugged-in” to the family finances as they ought to be. So, when the disability or sudden death of a spouse leaves women facing an unplanned transition into the role of family Chief Financial Officer (CFO) – most are ill prepared! Our trained and certified professionals will help you through these uncertain times.
- Financial decision-making: Women facing separation or divorce often face a crisis of identity, that’s compounded by the fact that they feel overwhelmed by the financial implications of this stage of their lives. Transitioning from married to single-again often results in financial challenges (some rather acrimonious!) that most women find stressful. Without the right professional advice, uninformed decisions can be made that could leave you and your dependent family members (children or wards) at a huge disadvantage for the rest of your lives.
- Starting afresh: A woman transitioning into yet another phase of her life might need to consider moving house, downsizing, or taking on a second mortgage. Our loan and mortgage specialists can offer you a variety of ingenious options to address those needs.
- Women-specific advice and counseling: Women in transition have a whole set of financial challenges and needs that are unique only to women. But you don’t have to go it alone. From making investment decisions, to dealing with divorce and separation mediation, arbitration or litigation, to planning for life after widowhood, divorce or separation, to assuring a secure retirement on your own terms – our experienced team of women advisors are here to help!
