Managing your personal wealth isn’t just about the dollars and cents. It’s about connecting with what matters to you. Across all generations from life changes through life stages, Mesirow is here to help. That’s why every quarter we write content on topics that we hope are relevant and insightful for you.

Retirement Lifestyle

Your life in retirement has the potential to exceed the life of your career. Think about that. That’s very different than the generations before us. Having a plan—both a financial plan and a plan for how you plan to spend the next 30+ years—has never been more important. People with a plan are, not surprisingly, significantly more satisfied in retirement.


Tax-Advantaged Investing

As stocks dip this year, some investors are taking advantage of the market volatility by converting their traditional pre-tax IRAs to a Roth IRA. Why? Because the decline in the current market value of the Traditional IRA means a reduced tax liability upon conversion


Planning and Advice

When it comes to meeting goals and staying on budget and on track to attain your financial objectives, financial planning is critical. Everyone has unique circumstances that must be considered when creating a comprehensive plan, and members of the LGBTQ community may have additional factors to consider when it comes to planning.


Retirement Planning
