How We Work With You

Financial & Retirement Planning

Financial planning is an ongoing process, not a product. It always considers who you are with a keen eye on your goals, taxes, estate, and retirement.

Investment Management

Our investment team is focused on quality control, risk variation monitoring, consideration of current holdings performance and potential investment opportunities. We focus on balancing risks and protecting portfolio withdrawal needs for our clients in retirement.

Insurance Assessment

We’ll help evaluate insurance needs and the most efficient methods to address financial risks. Based on objective planning, we can help review your existing insurance policies.

Tax Preparation & Planning

Navigating tax strategies – before and through retirement – requires a thorough understanding of your circumstances, including your financial plan. We also incorporate key strategies like distribution planning, Roth conversions, and tax-loss harvesting into our tax planning.

Estate & Legacy Planning

One-size-fits-all estate plans don’t exist, at least not here. Annex Wealth Management learns your unique circumstances, and with the help of our estate planning attorney, guides you through the process.

Financial Education & Discovery

Annex Wealth Management has an in-house content team that creates informative pieces at our Elm Grove headquarters.

401(k) Plans For Business

Managing a retirement plan that does what’s best for your employees isn’t just a positive goal – it’s what the government requires. We’ll help you fully understand and carry out what’s required.

Executive Financial Counseling Benefit For Business

Improve retention and morale by providing your executives access to tailored wealth management advice.

Devoted To Difference Makers.

The Annex Charitable Foundation provides financial support to existing charitable “difference makers.”

Putting Our Money Where OurIs

Annex directs profits from client insurance sales to the Annex Charitable Foundation.
