Jane Bond: Infiltrating the Market Should I Invest In REITs? What Our Kids Can Teach us About Saving Money The Fed and How It Got That Way

Welcome to Second Half Strategies

Second Half Strategies is a wealth management advisory firm located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our team is focused on addressing the unique financial planning and management needs of families and business owners who are in their second half. By limiting our scope, we have developed a detailed understanding of the unique problems and opportunities that our clients face. Our clients have:

  • a shorter time horizon to achieve their goals
  • little time to recover from unpredictable market, economic and competitive forces
  • less time to recover from ineffective decisions

Our experience also tells us that in your second half, simplifying is important to you: you want to consolidate advisors so that you can obtain guidance and answers to your questions from one tightly knit team. We also know that our clients are looking for strong, long term relationships with advisors who will communicate with them regularly. And finally, our clients want objective counsel and not someone who pushes product sales, so that’s what we are committed to providing.

At Second Half Strategies, we work to help you find financial focus—when it matters most.
