How the Cascades process works
It all starts with a unique planning philosophy
Our reports first solve for longevity risk, creating a sustainable income for your client. We use actuarial tables to determine mortality, and ensure income lasts well beyond the average age of death. Secondly we optimize your client’s projected cash flows by comparing three contrasting withdrawal strategies, determining which accounts should be drawn down first and which are better left last. Third, we focus on strategies to ease the administration of an estate for your client’s executors.
Tell us about your client
Our fact find questionnaire is cross-platform, making it easy to access from any device. It is intuitive, asking only the questions that are relevant to your client's retirement income plan. It provides helpful suggestions, making it an educational resource for advisors new to the field.
Receive and review reports
We deliver our standard report within one business day. Custom reports are available upon request. Inside each report you'll find a clear breakdown of your client's retirement income, a net worth statement, a withdrawal strategy comparison, income and investment projections, and key planning considerations.
