We utilize a proprietary rules-based strategy for selecting specific assets within equity and fixed-income. This strategy, offered exclusively to our clients at Gerstel Wealth Management, eliminates personal bias towards individual investments, guiding our decisions over time. By doing our due diligence, this process ensures your portfolio holds an unbiased and strong selection of asset classes.
Retirement is both the largest future liability most people will have and the one that differs most from other investing goals. Planning for retirement can span many years and occurs within two distinct phases: accumulation and reduction. We help you determine the parameters for your retirement and write them into your portfolio long before you retire - rather than working with abstract market predictions, we help you balance your needs as circumstances shift and change.

A formal business transition plan helps determine how, when and to whom you’ll transfer your business. A plan also helps preserve your company’s value as it accounts for tax planning, preparing for a potential sale and any unforeseen events. Our team helps you understand your options and identify an effective strategy for execution.
