On the other hand, he has more than 20 years of experience as a securities professional, bringing a wealth of knowledge to the often-complex subject of retirement benefits within the government sector. Steve's consultative services are meticulously tailored to meet the unique needs of law enforcement personnel. His experience navigating both the County and City of Los Angeles' Deferred Compensation Retirement plans uniquely positions him to provide unparalleled advice and insight. It's not just about managing assets or optimizing investments; it's about helping you make sense of complicated pension systems, deferred compensation options, and, crucially, how to wisely draw upon these funds in your retirement years. His dedicated team of advisors are all connected in some way to the law enforcement community, allowing for a multi-faceted approach to managing your financial future. They offer comprehensive consultations that cover everything from understanding pension and 401(k) systems to providing strategic recommendations on sustainable asset allocation for your retirement.
