Often, there is a risk of mishandling capital events—but at Samalin, we are experienced in helping our clients manage these types of newfound financial responsibility.

Advice on multi-generational
We know that your financial interests and concerns may span across the generations of your family and that you require investments and cash flow to meet an array of changing needs (both predictable and unpredictable).
As a parent, you may seek investment tools that will provide effectively for your children, their college tuition, weddings, and more. Or perhaps you are helping older parents with their own financial matters, or supplementing their funds with yours–for medical care and other necessities. Our team is experienced in the full scope of these cross-generational financial considerations, and we’ll help you navigate them with confidence and success.
