Financial Advisor & Business Strategists

SD Mayer offers a comprehensive suite of services dedicated to helping you as a trusted financial advisor and business advisor.  We have advisory services for every stage of your personal or business lifecycle.

SD Mayer Will Be By Your Side Through Every Stage

Seed Funding and Conception

Like conceiving a child, businesses are born from just an idea and development begins. From the beginning, SD Mayer’s planning team can strategize with you to make sure that you understand the tax implications of the decisions you’re heading into and you will have nancial security for your future.

Startup/Infancy and Childhood

By now, your business is born, named and registered and it’s time to get to work. As new parents of a business or toddler, you’ll need a team that can help you get through this nerve-wracking time.

Our tax advisors have the resources to provide strategic advice on how to best manage your cashflow through the murky tax waters. Our wealth management and retirement teams can help you plan ahead to meet your future goals—whether that’s college, retirement or future growth.

This can also be a good time to speak to our technology team to evaluate your systems and hit the ground running without overspending.

Growth and Establishment/ Teen, College and Adulthood

The teenage years can be tough—too young to be fully independent, but too old to be micromanaged. At this point, you can start to let go and delegate tasks to others, so that you can focus on other things. SD Mayer’s outsource team could handle your back office tasks, like bookkeeping, while you focus on the front office. As you move toward adulthood, the smart business decisions you’ve made will start to pay off.


During this stage, it’s natural to want to expand into new markets with new tax implications. SD Mayer will be by your side to help you navigate and course correct so that you can take advantage of new opportunities.

Maturity and Exit/Retirement

At the end of your life cycle, the decisions you have made come to full realization. The SD Mayer team can help you through reorganizations, downsizing or can even help you come up with an exit strategy.
