Insurance & Risk Management

Protecting yourself, your loved ones, your home or your business against unexpected events is a fundamental aspect of wealth management. Closing the gap on potential risks can be tricky without comprehensive planning and implementation that methodically evaluates all potential risk factors.

Thatís why risk analysis is an integral part of our ongoing process. We continually identify and analyze all risk factors and make objective and unbiased recommendations to provide you with the confidence you seek.

About Long-Term Care Insurance

When planning for your healthcare needs in retirement, it is important to keep in mind that:

  • Medicare is not nursing home insurance and does not cover long-term care
  • Private medical insurance or Medicare supplement plans do not cover maintenance care

Long-term care insurance can help you better manage healthcare costs while shifting the risk to an insurance provider. This helps to ensure your healthcare needs, and those of loved ones, are covered well into the future. Adequate financial planning now can help prevent a lifetime of assets from falling short when you need them most.

How We Manage Investment Risk

At Berk Wealth Management our strategies are designed with the goal to help advance your portfolio when the market is rising, and protect capital when the market is falling.

  • We strive for a deep understanding of the fundamental aspects of the economy, markets and instruments in which we invest.
  • Using technical analysis, we monitor metrics such as supply, demand, relative strength and favored asset classes, along with qualitative and quantitative strategies, which help to reveal entry and exit points.
  • We employ strict buy and sell disciplines.
  • We closely monitor your portfolio and adjust your asset allocation as the market cycle evolves and circumstances warrant.
  • By monitoring market trends and adjusting your allocation accordingly, we can more effectively manage risk and help protect your investments from extreme market volatility.

No strategy ensures a profit or protects against loss. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
