Planning Your Retirement Income To Reach Your Goals


Let's Begin Plotting Your Retirement

Based in Portland, OR and Serving Clients Across the Nation

Mark Sharp Retirement is a fee- and advice-only, virtual financial planning firm that specializes in planning for the draw down phase of people's financial lifetimes, when they're no longer receiving a paycheck from their jobs but must still fund their lifestyles during a potentially lengthy retirement.

Comprehensive and Coordinated Retirement Income Planning that Addresses Risks and Matches Your Goals

When you work with me, I'll help make sure your future income needs are met so you can enjoy your life past employment to the fullest extent. I’ll also make sure you are aware of and know how to properly treat the risks that pose the greatest threat to your retirement security. After we’ve met your income needs and addressed your risks, we’ll show you a pathway to achieve other financial goals that make for a well-rounded retirement.

Tax-Aware Planning to Avoid Costly Mistakes During Retirement

Tax strategies used to successfully distribute wealth are inherently different from those used to successfully accumulate wealth. Tax planning is a core component of comprehensive retirement income planning. I'll review all potential tax implications that could negatively impact your retirement security so you’re well-prepared for filing season and everything in-between. From exploiting partial Roth conversions to the timing of liquidations, I'll help ensure the financial decisions you make avoid potential tax consequences while increasing after-tax retirement income. 

Transform Your Wealth into Your Ideal Retirement Lifestyle

A key way to accumulate additional retirement income, investing is a vital aspect of any retirement income plan. Before crafting a strategy, I'll sit down and discuss your retirement income needs, risks and goals so I have a clear understanding of your main concerns and priorities. After these aspects have been outlined and agreed upon, I'll design an investment strategy centered around your objectives to help make sure every dollar you invest maximizes after-tax retirement income.
