Advisory Process

This is our opportunity to discover what is financially and personally important to you. We will address your values, goals, relationships and interests and review your existing assets and liabilities. You will also have the chance to learn about how we help our clients gain financial peace of mind and then determine if your needs and our services are a good fit.

Investment plan

Based on the information reviewed at the discovery meeting, we will present an investment plan based on your needs, wants and investment experience. The plan will be designed based on your tax profile as well as your personal tolerance for risk. All fees and expenses will be transparent so you will be fully informed.

Mutual commitment meeting

After you have had the opportunity to review the investment plan, we will get back together to initiate the implementation of your investment plan. At this meeting we will establish your new accounts, deposit funds and transfer assets. In addition, we will establish your online access to all of your accounts. We will also address proper account titling as well as beneficiary designations.

Organizational meeting

This is a very important time to organize all of the information that you will have received over the past 45 days. You will be given your personal organizational folder in which to keep important correspondence as well as tax information. Statement retention and frequency will be determined to fit your need for information and to ensure your tax professional has the necessary information to prepare tax projections and returns.

Progress and update meeting

This is possibly the most important service you will receive. It includes following through on your Investment Plan, measuring your progress and adjusting the plan as your financial picture changes. In addition, at your first progress meeting, we will begin to develop your Personal Wealth Management Plan. We will look at legal, tax and inheritance goals as well as how to best fund charitable contributions you may want to make. Due to the comprehensive nature of the Wealth Management Plan we will develop for you, we will also address the need to contact your other professional advisors such as your attorney and accountant.
