You’ve done well. And although no two surgeons are alike, you likely share three broad objectives: to minimize taxes, to reduce risk of losses, to leave a family legacy.

 

For high-income practices whose retirement plans have been capped by government limits, Surgeons Capital Management offers comprehensive tax-favored financial strategies. But unlike other financial advisors who focus almost exclusively on asset allocation (that is, how your assets are divided among stocks, bonds, and cash), we want to begin the discussion by determining your asset location (that is, how your assets should be arranged by tax classes).

Asset location before asset allocation

At SCM, we believe that the location of your assets from a tax standpoint is far more important to your surgical practice than how they are allocated. And before asset location can be determined, we first need to understand your long-term financial goals in three areas: wealth planning, tax-favored planning, and insurance planning.

  • WEALTH PLANNING

    Investment Analysis & Implementation

    Based on your goals, SCM reviews your current holdings and recommends any potential changes that may better align assets with liabilities, and reduce risk. Our scoring methodology weighs style factors, risk/return, peer-group rankings and qualitative factors.

    Assessing Financial Instruments

    Do the instruments you currently own provide tax-free income? Tax-deferred accumulation? Tax-deductible contributions? SCM can advise you on strategies that offer the potential for high liquidity, tax-free cash flow, and creditor protection in most states. Learn More.
