Retirement Planning



Accumulating wealth for retirement so you can reach the shoreline of retirement ready and relaxed.


Like a good vacation, retirement planning takes time to prepare a good plan and setting goals for when you get there. The keys to achieving those goals are planning and preparation. Our process for retirement planning charts a clear path for building wealth aligned to your retirement timelines and covers these important checkpoints:

  • Cashflow Management: assesses your current financial scenario and helps manage how resources are earned, budgeted, and spent.... both before and during retirement.

  • Wealth Accumulation & Investment Management:  helps to chart the most efficient path for reaching your goals for retirement while taking into account other life milestones and prepares for the post retirement pivot.

  • Risk & Tax Management: helps reduce obstacles that can hinder achieving your financial goals by addressing key risk factors in retirement early and proactively.


Working together, we can simplify the complexities of your financial life by managing your wealth in a systematic way for the long term.



Insurance Products


Protect yourself, your loved ones, and your assets against the unexpected.



Insurance is an important part of a wealth management plan and can be a versatile, multi-purpose tool to help manage risk, preserve wealth and ensure our plans for the next generation are preserved.  A large part of financial planning is managing risk, and in many instances incorporating insurance into your financial plan can solidify your portfolio and preserve wealth.

Staines Financial is a Fee-Only Registered Investment Advisor!


Why you should care

When looking for a financial advisory firm, there are many metrics used to judge the quality and competency of the firm and its advisors; services that meet your needs, strategies and values aligned to your own, a good reputation, etc.  Often overlooked however is how the firm will be compensated for services provided and for developing or managing your wealth management plan.  It is here that potential conflicts of interest can arise and it's critical to consider the manner in which he or she takes compensation.  The bottom line is that how compensation is obtained can affect how objective the advice you're receiving is, and the impact that can have on the decisions made for you and your family. For this reason, Staines Financial is committed to serving our clients using a fee-only service structure for all of the advisory services we provide to our clients.  

Please note - insurance products and insurance offerings are not fee only and subject to insurance product fees.

Why Fee-only?

Three common compensation structures often found in the financial industry are:

  • Fee-Only — In this system, a straightforward, flat rate fee based on the number and size of assets that are being managed by the financial advisor or firm, NOT by the number of transactions or products sold.  In this structure the firm receives more compensation when the clients' assets grow, hence the desire to focus on growing client's wealth.

  • Commission-Based — This means that the financial advisor or firm  is compensated for selling financial products such as annuities and insurance or on a "per-transaction" basis (i.e. purchase or sale of an investment).  In this structure, the firm may be compensated whether or not the client's assets grow, hence the potential to focus beyond asset growth.

  • Fee-Based — This is a combination of the first two forms of compensation, where a firm both receives commissions for products and charges a fee for the number of assets managed.


With a fee-only financial advisory firm, both the clients' interests and that of the firm are inherently tied together.


With a fee-only advisor you can be confident in knowing that your best interests are tied to the suggestions and decisions being made for you, your assets, and your family.
