I have worked with a few advisers over the years. ARS is a combination of several principles that I feel are the best for me. First they work with you on your social security options. As a single person and with the new rules for married people the options are being limited. But they helped figure out when it would be best for me to start taking my distributions. The next step was understanding where my assets are located and which ones they were going to manage. These assets were then bucketed into immediate needs monies, intermediate and long term money. As you can imagine the immediate needs monies are invested quite conservatively and less conservative with the long term money. They also helped index this to a reasonable rate of inflation. Check them out you may be a future client?

Yes, i enjoyed my steak dinner at Ruth Chris. And when I met with the owner and he reviewed my situation, his conclusion was that there was nothing more he could do for me as i had already done it. No sale means a honest company.

I attended a delicious steak dinner at Daniels, and followed up with three visits to Absolute Return Solutions, because they offered to work up a personal retirement plan for me, subject to my approval and cost free otherwise. However, after providing comprehensive information to them, and before I ever saw any plan, I was asked to sign a contract to pay them on completion and delivery of the plan. The contract wording should have been completion, approval, and delivery. The discrepancy between what they offered and what was provided did not promote confidence in Absolute Return Solutions. I felt they were trying to manipulate me. I did benefit from reviewing my finances, and the view from their Seattle office is very nice.

Ive rewritten this review three times. My wife wants me to be fair and leave out my impressions. So Ive deleted almost everything. We went for financial planning assistance. We got a lot of information, and went through a process that led us to self select indexed equity annuities. On reflection, we could make no other choice given the information presented and the way it was presented. (Like a professionally structured poll, the questions will lead you to a foregone predictable result.) At the end of a long process we decided this firm and their programs were not and are not for us. We were unwilling to give up total control over all our assets, unwilling to accept only limited options for change at only an annual basis, and unwilling to rely almost solely on insurance companies for the safety and growth of our assets. If you are willing to trust your assets to the absolute control of a third party this program is for you. We did not have that level of comfort or trust. We didnt sign up.
