FMB’s SAIL program is designed to address two of the issues most important to many of our clients today: withdrawal strategy & capital preservation.  With these two ends in mind, the partners at FMB built the SAIL program by pulling relevant core strategies from existing well established research such as the Yale Endowment Fund and fundamental Cash Reserve strategies.  By applying the portions of the high-level strategies which pertain directly to the achievement of our clients’ most important goals, we have developed a retirement funding strategy that is not only highly effective, but also relatively simple for clients to understand and monitor on an ongoing basis.
