Guidance for the big picture and finer details
A WELL-ORDERED PROCESS for personalizing your plan
While the customized financial plan we create for each client is unique to them, the orderly way we go about arriving at it is uniform in its structure for a simple reason: It helps ensure that we stay on point. Here are the integral steps we follow.
We realize the importance of investing time upfront to listening and getting to know you – building a good understanding of your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. It’s also an opportunity to build trust and rapport, make you aware of our capabilities and explain the ways we can help you meet your objectives.
Next, we will analyze what you’ve shared with us in order to design your comprehensive financial plan, taking into account the different pieces of your financial picture and making sure they cohesively fit together without any gaps or disparities. This step may include collaborating with your other professional advisors such as your accountant and lawyer. We present our recommendations to you, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps we need to take to implement your plan.
With your approval, we will execute your customized strategy using the extensive research and resources available to us. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services, and the handling of all necessary paperwork.
Once your plan is implemented, we will continually monitor the progress of your plan relative to your defined objectives and suggest any changes where needed. We accomplish this by providing ongoing reporting of your account activity and by conducting periodic reviews. We purposely maintain a close connection with you, so we are in step with your life and aware of any changes in your life that may warrant a revision to your plan.
