Intrepid Wealth Partners, LLC
Founder & CEO
Hello, my friends call me Derek or DJ. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our team and what we do. I am the Founder and CEO of Intrepid Wealth Partners, one of four companies I have been involved with.
I am married to my lovely wife Amanda. We have a 7 year old son (going on 15!) Neary, and recently lost our old rescue dog, Murphy, who was a mix between a German Sheppard, Husky, and something else, we really miss him! We love to travel, meet new people, and try new and different types of food.
I am an American and Irish dual national, having been born in Dublin, Ireland. My son also enjoys the benefits of dual citizenship, however my wife was born and raised in Minnesota. Our travels throughout the world have taught us that most people are genuinely good and want what is best for themselves, their families, and others. We have had the privilege of meeting some great people along the way, who have helped expand our horizons, both professionally and personally.
As a Certified Financial Planner® Professional, I specialize working with Entrepreneurs, Founders, Business Owners, Startup Companies and their Families to realize their hopes, dreams & goals through the leverage of financial education and our financial planning process.
Please think of me and my team as your resource. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and don't forget to check out my blog, Founders Finance, to help you manage your money like you own it.

Good question. It will depend. Her former company may require her to take a lump sum or monthly payments from the annuity. They also may allow the lump sum to be rolled over to an IRA. Rolling to an IRA avoids any current taxes and allows your wife to withdraw funds at her discretion.
Keeping it in the annuity versus rolling it over to an IRA will be determined by what the former company's rules are and if she can keep it where it is what the benefits of leaving it there will be.
I would suggest you get more details from her former company before deciding what to do.
It depends. Your financial situation and needs are different from everyone else thus it would be of value for you to have a financial plan done to assess your short and long term needs which can then drive how best to invest your money.
Thank you for the question.
Great question. Essentially any fund with a "Load" is one in which you will need to pay a sales charge to get in (A shares) or get out of (B shares in the first 7-8 years, or C shares within the first year.)
Different fund families have different loads for their funds and will sometimes give discounts to investors (or households) that invest over certain thresholds. All of this information can be found in the fund prospectus which should be reviewed before buying the fund.
A "No-Load" fund is one in which there is no load (or sales charge) to buy into or sell out of that fund.
Always do some research on the fund before making a purchase.
Thank you for your question and the information you shared. Each persons (couples) financial situation is unique and should be planned for accordingly. I would suggest you start by thinking about what your hopes, dreams, and goals are. Once you have crystallized those, you could go through a comprehensive process with a CFP professional to prioritize your goals and put a plan in place to accomplish everything you desire.
It is important to find an adviser that you like, one that shares similar philosophies, one that you connect with on a fundamental level. Once you have this established, building trust and a financial plan is much simpler.
Thank you for your question. Rollovers can definitely be a confusing topic to understand. Keep in mind that your Thrift Savings Plan is essentially a 401(k). Here is an excerpt from a recent article I wrote on rollover options:
"Here is a clear and simple explanation of what a 401(k) rollover is and what your options are when you leave or retire from your job. According to FINRA, people have 4 choices when they start a new job or retire:
- Leave the money in your former employer’s plan
- Roll over the money to your new employer’s plan, if the plan accepts transfers
- Roll over the money into an individual retirement account (IRA)
- Take the cash value of your account"
