Retirement Planning

One of our major focuses is ensuring that our clients have a plan for a comfortable retirement. We provide comprehensive, practical retirement planning that can help put you on track to pursue your goals. If you receive a distribution from an employer-sponsored retirement plan, we can help analyze your available choices, coordinate recommendations with your tax professionals, and assist you in identifying the course of action that makes the most sense for you.

Tax-Advantaged Bond Program

The Pidgeon Group offers investors with large portfolios of municipal bonds the opportunity to take full advantage of one of the few remaining tax-advantaged investments. The centerpiece of the program is a complete analysis of your bond portfolio holdings. Based on your needs, we can provide a series of detailed reports, including income-flow analysis, maturity alert, yield and coupon analysis, and rating analysis, that can help you manage your bond portfolio. We have the ability to review and analyze fixed income exchange traded funds, mutual funds, unit investment trusts and closed-end funds.

Municipal bonds are subject to availability and change in price. They are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise. Interest income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Municipal bonds are federally tax-free but other state and local taxes may apply.


Estate Planning Strategies

By taking steps today to review your will and estate documents with your professional legal advisors, you can protect your heirs from substantial delays, fees and taxes. The Pidgeon Group can assist you in reviewing or developing an estate plan that will simplify the transfer of your estate to your beneficiaries. We can work with you and your network of trusted professional advisors, including your tax and legal counsel, to devise a strategy that is most appropriate for your situation. If you are not already working with an accountant or legal professional, we can make an introduction.

Wells Fargo Advisors is not a legal or tax advisor.


Charitable Giving

You may be considering a philanthropic donation of appreciated assets to a charitable organization. We can show you how to make tax-intelligent decisions while supporting the institutions you value most. We will work in coordination with your legal and tax advisor to help you make appropriate choices, as we are not meant to give tax advice or to take the place of your tax advisor.


Education Funding

For many families, education costs are major expenses that require careful planning. We can help you by establishing a 529 College Savings Plan for your child or grandchild.* These plans offer professionally managed, tax-advantaged portfolios to help plan for rising college expenses.

*Please consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing in a 529 savings plan. The official statement, which contains this and other information, can be obtained by calling your financial advisor. Read it carefully before you invest.
