Understanding Dividends Don't Buy The Hype Once Upon a Goal A New Way to Look at Your Bucket List

Welcome to Vista Pointe Wealth Solutions, LLC

Affluent individuals are living in an ever increasingly complex financial world. They are making important, yet very isolated decisions, regarding the  preservation, protection, and enjoyment of the wealth they worked so hard to create. The conditions affecting these isolated decisions can shift abruptly and have a dramatic impact on many or all of the other areas of their finances.

Whether it be estate, tax strategies or insurance decisions, evaluated on their own merits, those individual choices can appear to make good sense. But when viewed as part of a whole, the incongruities become apparent. Disconnected strategies often contradict each other and end up inhibiting the greater good of the whole.

Not only are these decisions often not properly coordinated, but the rationale for these decisions is typically not based upon a financial model and strategy, but rather an endless flood of financial misinformation found in the media, financial institution publications and the do-it-yourself "how-to" books. In many cases, this "misinformation" is passed on from one generation to another with no true empirical basis or logic, yet it is accepted as "truth" due to its prevalence and repetitiveness.

A well-orchestrated estate design, an effective retirement distribution plan and a coordinated risk management plan can yield results that far exceed the potential of the individual elements within it. At Vista Pointe Wealth Solutions, we understand the "how" and "why" most people make their financial decisions. Our mission is to educate and instruct high net worth individuals on how economics can measure and verify their financial decisions. Our process empowers our clients to make verifiable, well coordinated, educated decisions in areas of their financial life in order to provide for the maximum wealth accumulation potential and protection.
