Given our history of serving the medical community, you may have a trusted friend or colleague who works with us.

Through more than 30 years of change and uncertainty, Foster Group has served the financial needs of hundreds of physicians and their families in Iowa, Nebraska, and across the United States. Our financial planners for doctors and medical professionals provide time-tested, evidence-based guidance and support – no matter where you’re at on your career journey.

Our primary purpose is to help you identify and accomplish your goals – to bring your vision to reality, to maybe even expand upon what you think is possible. In so doing, we help you achieve peace of mind – a feeling of freedom and confidence that you’re doing the right things for yourself and the people you love.

Our experience gives us insight into the financial concerns, opportunities and decisions you may be facing. And our expert team works to provide the thoughtful answers and research-based guidance you may be looking for.

Financial Planning for Doctors Nearing Retirement | Foster Group
Does the possibility of retirement cross your mind more than it used to? Are you feeling like it might be time to hang up the white coat? Do you wonder if you’re financially and emotionally prepared to pull the string? Do you have a good handle on what’s next? These are natural questions. Ones that we have helped hundreds of physician-clients address through the years. As a result, we know that no two retirements – no two futures – are exactly alike. After all, it’s not so much about what you’re retiring from as it is about what you’re retiring to.

That’s why your expert Foster Group advisory team for medical professionals will work closely with you and your family. We want to achieve a deep understanding of your personal goals, challenges and opportunities. We are here to help think of what you haven’t – and help ensure you’re creating a plan and portfolio that can produce the best life and legacy for yourself and those you care about. So, we bring fresh wealth management ideas for doctors to the table and curate customized evidence-based planning and investment options. All with your best interests in mind.

For most doctors, retirement means more than simply translating savings and investments into income. It’s about resetting your lifestyle and achieving your post-career goals. It’s about creating a legacy for your family, advancing the causes you believe in, and reaping the rewards of a lifetime of planning, work, and resolve. We can help with coordinating trust and estate planning, and depending on your situation, business succession planning as well. We can also coordinate the work of attorneys, accountants, trust officers, and your other trusted advisors. We can even organize family meetings and education to help secure the future for you, your heirs, and your beneficiaries.
