Spotlight on Andy Penso

Mission Wealth Success Story

A client who recently sold her business needed a comprehensive wealth management plan. The client was referred to Mission Wealth to help guide her through a recent business transition and the subsequent tax, estate planning, and investment planning needs.

We conducted an in-depth analysis of her situation including a comprehensive tax and estate plan review to ensure her affairs were organized in the most tax-efficient way. The cash flow analysis uncovered additional income needs that we complemented with covered calls on concentrated stock holdings. Additionally, we were able to further increase her income with access to alternative assets.
