Absolute Return Solutions, Inc. is a regional financial planning firm with offices in Redmond, Seattle, the Tri-cities region, and Denver. Our firm focuses on helping retirees and those preparing for retirement to have the income they need and want for the rest of their lives. Typically, they have at least $250,000 of investable assets and seek dependable guidance for turning their savings and assets into their retirement dreams.
Our Fiduciary Focus
As an independent business, we’re not tied to any brokerage or insurance firm that directs how we must serve clients. Instead, we’re able to dedicate our efforts as a fiduciary and put our clients’ needs first, in everything we do.
This client-centric focus has guided us since day one.
Founder Jim Black has always believed that to genuinely help people, you need to know who they are, listen to them, and care about their well-being. Rather than offer standard service and outcomes, clients should experience a better relationship. At Absolute Return Solutions, no two financial plans are ever the same. We tailor every aspect of our support to clients’ individual needs and pursue the unique retirement lifestyles they imagine.
A Different Advisory Approach
The stock market is inherently volatile — and you’ve probably experienced the uncertainty that can arise from investing in the markets.
While stocks can support asset growth, we believe they should represent only a portion of your financial strategies. To best serve clients, we seek to help them minimize risk as much as possible — and broaden their financial opportunities. In doing so, we found another way to help clients achieve their goals. Instead of relying solely on stocks, we build them as only one component of your financial plan.
As distribution planners, we follow specific investment criteria within the Absolute Return model that, when blended together, help our clients protect, diversify, and grow their assets, without being too weighted in the volatility stocks can provide.
When you couple this approach with our strategy to map out every month of your retirement until age 100, you gain the confidence of knowing your retirement dreams aren’t only possible — they can be a reality.
