Interest Rates: How Low Can They Go? Ready for Retirement?

Welcome to Antoine Williams
& Associates Financial Services

We help a select group of individuals going through transitions, due to death, divorce, inheritance and retirement, make smart decisions with their money that are aligned with their values and goals. We do this by using a consultative process to identify where they are now, where they want to go, and any gaps for getting there. We then work with a network of professional advisors, such as accountants and attorneys, to help our clients make informed decisions to increase the probability of them achieving their goals.
