Investment and Financial Planning

Investments are the key to a secure financial future.  While not without risk, they are the best way to grow your money for the long-term.  It doesn’t have to be confusing or intimidating.  Let Lowell Five help you plan for your financial future.

More than stocks and bonds

Investments and financing planning go far beyond just buying or trading stocks.  For this reason, Lowell Five has teamed up with Lincoln Investment and KAF Financial Advisors.  Work with a company that goes beyond a cursory short-term view to assess what financial options are in your long-term best interest.  KAF’s experienced financial planners can advise you on a customized plan for saving for college or retirement along with insurance and investment strategies and more.

Lowell Five reviews all financial planning requests to ensure the right fit.  KAF Advisors will meet with you at our corporate headquarters in Tewksbury or at one of our 16 convenient local branches near you.  Your KAF and Lowell Five team will listen first to build a sustainable financial plan for you and your family.

Planning process

The process begins with gathering the information needed to understand you and your financial life. This allows your advisors to determine your risk tolerance, identify opportunities to help improve your financial well-being, and results in a plan to serve you and your family. They use financial models that take your entire financial picture into view.  As independent advisors and fiduciaries, KAF has access to a wide range of investment and insurance products, which allows them to deliver the solution that best aligns with your needs. They can also put you in touch with tax advisors or estate attorneys or review estate documents.

A forward-looking investment plan would include facets such as:

  • Defining how best to use cash you don’t need immediately
  • Key goals for the future (home ownership, retirement, education costs)
  • Building capital resources
  • Having a tax strategy
