Areas of Specialty
Holistic Financial Planning
Holistic Financial Planning
Holistic financial planning is the process of pursuing your life goals through the proper management of your resources. Life goals can include buying a home, saving for your child’s education, planning for retirement, or leaving a legacy.
Holistic financial planning allows you to understand how a financial decision you make affects other areas of your life. By viewing each financial decision as part of a whole, you can consider its short and long-term effects on your life goals. Life changes are more adaptable, leaving you feeling more secure that your goals are on track.
Retirement Income Planning
Retirement Income Planning
Retirement planning is the planning one does to be prepared for life after paid work ends, not just financially but in all aspects of life. The non-financial aspects include such lifestyle choices as how to spend time in retirement, where to live, when to completely quit working, etc.
Early in a person’s working life, retirement planning is about setting aside enough money for retirement. During the middle of an individual’s career, it might also include setting specific income or asset targets and taking the steps to achieve them. In the few years leading up to retirement, financial assets are more or less determined, and so the emphasis changes to non-financial, lifestyle aspects.
Social Security Maximization
Social Security Maximization
Social Security represents a stable source of retirement income and should be considered a critical component of any individual’s retirement plan. Because it is a lifetime annuity, it is far more valuable than many people realize. In other words; once you begin collecting benefits, they continue for the rest of your life. There is also a right of survivorship so when one spouse dies, the other can continue to receive the higher of the two benefits until they die as well. Benefits are also inflation protected thanks to annual cost-of-living adjustments. Given the great potential of Social Security benefits over a person’s lifetime, it makes sense to treat this resource as a significant asset and to make decisions that will maximize it to the greatest possible extent.
Your estate is comprised of everything you own— your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal possessions. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.
Estate planning—making a plan in advance and naming whom you want to receive the things you own after you die. However, good estate planning is much more than that.

About Gryphon Prosperity Group
In choosing a name for the company, we sought to present ourselves in a way that would convey our mission to help people accumulate and protect the assets they work so hard for. We have seen too many examples of people forfeiting opportunities for wealth due to outdated or inefficient money strategies that fail to take full advantage of their financial choices and the laws and realities that govern them.
The Gryphon is a legendary, mythological creature thought to guard great treasures. Heralding back to antiquity, Gryphon Prosperity Group sought to symbolize what we represent in the character, integrity, and esteem of the mighty Gryphon.
In Medieval times, when much of the lore of the Gryphon was being written, those who had accumulated great wealth were forced to find ways to protect it. Without financial institutions to help accomplish this critical task, they turned to building great castles with high walls, strong keeps, and motes.
While today there are no invading marauders attempting to raid one’s coffers, there are outside forces that can have a profoundly detrimental impact on one’s financial situation and ability to amass wealth. Factors such as taxes, fees, market volatility, inflation, and lost opportunity costs launch daily assaults on your wealth. Without aligning with someone who can help you in meeting these challenges head-on, it is highly probable that the best course of action may not have been charted.
By maximizing the efficiency of each financial decision, and positioning our clients to best withstand these outside forces, Gryphon Prosperity Group perpetually seeks to maximize protection, increase wealth, and decrease costs.

We all seek a financial life that produces long term wealth, security and income. If this could be done while reducing risk, wealth erosion and financial costs, then all the better.
Getting organized around this powerful desire is more difficult than it may appear. Life doesn’t occur in a vacuum and our financial decisions shouldn’t be made in one as well.
Every one of us makes financial decisions throughout our life at different times, with different people, all under different circumstances. This typically leads to feeling confused, unorganized, and not sure if we’ve made the right decision for us or our family. Every decision we make has an impact on other decisions in ways that are not always apparent. Understanding the basics of how money works is critical to moving ahead with confidence.
We must start then by evaluating the challenges that threaten our financial potential and how best to overcome them. Without a complete view of how all of the elements of our financial choices work together, we may end up losing our wealth unnecessarily, taking on greater risk and falling short of reaching our full financial potential.
