Dr. Thomas Tobin is a 56-year-old Cardiologist who has been with the same group of doctors since he completed training 25 years ago. He and his wife, Sarah, who is a CPA, want to know when they can afford to retire and what standard of living they might expect. They have done most of their own investment selection, but have no actual game plan and absolutely no idea how to convert their assets into a dependable income stream.
Bob and Ruth Spangerson are both retired physicians who have been married for 38 years. They retired two years ago, but have grown uncomfortable with their ability to manage their investments to produce a dependable income stream. Financial markets have posed real challenges in creating an income stream from their portfolio and they are concerned that they may be doing more harm than good after simply using high dividend stocks and watching the values decline and some of the dividends themselves get cut. They feel it is time to turn their portfolio over to a professional to manage their assets so that they can finally travel and enjoy life.
