John Lynch has been named to the 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2012, 2011 and 2010 lists of Barron's Top 1,200 Financial Advisors. Barron's Top 1,200 rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 advisors. Factors included in the rankings were assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, quality of the practice, and other factors. Institutional assets are given less weight in the scoring. Investment performance isn't an explicit component. Advisors are examined based upon regulatory record, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the advisors themselves.
Understanding Today’s Financial Environment
You have worked hard for decades accumulating a nest egg for retirement, and now that once-distant goal is coming sharply into focus. As you approach your retirement date, you will encounter many difficult decisions.
Do I have enough savings to meet my income needs in retirement?
Should I take my company pension as a lump sum, or should I opt to receive a monthly annuity?
What is the most appropriate mix of stocks, bonds, and alternative investments?
When should I start taking my Social Security benefits?
Do I need long-term care insurance?
These represent a sampling of the questions that render today's retirement investment landscape so daunting.
