How Our Planning Process Works
Discovery Phone Call
We begin with an initial discussion of your values, goals, and expectations of our services. As we develop your client profile, we’ll answer any questions you may have about our firm and whether we can add value to your situation.
Let's Get Organized
Once your profile is created, we will help you organize your accounts, bringing your plan to life. Then, we will evaluate your current position and help you clarify your goals. You will actually be more organized at the end of this meeting!
Let's See Results
At this point, we will present your plan results and offer recommendations for moving forward. We will stress-test your plan to see if it is strong enough to handle even the worst case scenarios. And we will work together to increase your confidence levels by making sure your finances are working in harmony.
Once we decide there is a mutual fit, we will ask you to sign a few documents, including:
- Advisory Service Contract
- Investment Policy Statement
- Paperwork to Establish Accounts and Transfer Assets
During this meeting, we will deliver a written investment plan and analyze your asset transfers as well as the implementation of your investment plan. We will also explain any brokerage statements and address any additional questions you may have.
Over time, we’ll schedule subsequent meetings as needed, and at least annually, to discuss any changes in your circumstances, present recommended actions and monitor your progress. Additionally, we’ll identify advanced planning items to discuss wealth enhancement, transfer and protection, as well as charitable giving, if applicable.
