Our Planning Process

It is important that all investment strategies and tactics are customized for you. You are unique. What works for your friend or neighbor may not work for you.

In your first appointment, we will ask you just a few questions to learn where you’ve been and where you would like to be. The answers could quite possibly change your financial future.

At the end of the meeting, both of us will have some idea of the next steps we want to take. But keep in mind, there is no obligation for attending the first appointment. You can walk away and owe nothing. Our objective is to develop long term professional relationships. If we don’t think that our services will benefit you, we will tell you.

During the second meeting, we need a complete picture of the resources you have available. You will need to provide us with all applicable legal documents and account statements. But once again, the emphasis is on understanding your goals, objectives and motivations.

Typical questions we might ask include:

  • What are three goals you have yet to accomplish?
  • What aspirations do you have for your loved ones?
  • How do you want people to remember you?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how much confidence do you have in your current investment strategy?
  • What do you think might happen to your financial picture over the next three years?
  • What do you expect from a financial advisor?
  • What is your best and worst financial experience?
  • Who in your life do you care about most?

All analysis and recommendations will be presented in draft form and discussed in detail at the third meeting. A step-by-step action plan will be presented for your review.

Though subsequent meetings may be necessary, at a minimum we will want to meet with you at least semi-annually.

Keeping up with increasingly complex financial markets demands a high level of experience and extensive resources.
