Our Expertise

At Lloyd R. Wilson & Associates, we are dedicated to helping our clients conserve wealth and protect the extensive assets that have been built, in some cases, over several generations. With over 40 years of experience, we offer clients an impressive depth of expertise in everything from estate and retirement planning, to business succession and charitable giving. Some of our common services include:

Estate and Legacy Planning

A well-engineered estate conservation plan can minimize tax liability and ensure that loved ones are protected. We work with clients and their professional advisors to analyze their current financial status and assess the potential impact of state and federal taxes on a client’s estate. Using this baseline, we develop and suggest strategies that will meet planning goals in coordination with personal philosophies and family needs. Additionally, we can help clients look at the benefits of a charitable giving plan designed to meet personal goals and achieve philanthropic objectives.

Wealth and Asset Protection

At Lloyd R. Wilson & Associates, we develop strategies to help shield your business and personal assets from liabilities or life events. In addition to death benefit protection, this can help safeguard asset transfer to children and grandchildren.

Business Succession
and Exit Planning

A lifetime of work goes into the development of a successful business, often making it a client’s most valuable asset. An estate plan should be in place to protect that asset and ensure its viability and value long into the future. We can offer innovative strategies for the continuation of the business that address the needs of each family member.

Charitable Gift Planning

Charitable gift planning allows our clients to support the organizations and causes that matter to them, while providing immediate income streams and generating valuable ­tax benefits. At Lloyd R. Wilson & Associates, our philanthropically-minded clients support a wide array of charitable institutions, and numerous charitable giving strategies exist. We will discuss your needs and wishes to determine what will work best, then we will work collaboratively with your legal and tax professionals to implement the plan.

Executive Benefits

Most successful businesses employ talented executives whose contributions to the bottom line are critical. It is essential to attract and retain high-caliber people. Our firm can suggest a variety of benefit packages that effectively retain key employees as well as attract new ones.

Retirement Planning

We design and help implement a variety of accumulation and retirement income plans, offering insurance products, investment programs ranging from separately managed portfolios of stocks and bonds to mutual funds, as well as access to third party wealth management programs. We offer a consistent process to ensure management of investment assets according to client risk tolerances and return goals, monitoring on a continual basis, and the evolution of portfolios in conjunction with changing client objectives.
