Our Process

Our financial planning services integrate all aspects of your financial life and provide you with objective analysis, specific advice and implementation support to help you reach your goals. To create your plan, we follow a comprehensive six-step process:

  1. Gather Information – We conduct an initial interview and gather data ranging from your assets and liabilities to employment benefits. We take the time to get to know you and learn about your risk tolerance and lifestyle.

  2. Set Goals – We provide you with a client questionnaire, which helps us identify the short- and long-term goals that will be guideposts for your financial plan.

  3. Analyze and Evaluate – We will show you how your current situation relates to your stated goals.

  4. Recommendations and Alternatives – We will research and consider alternative strategies before recommending a proposed action plan for you. Together, we will discuss and agree upon actions to implement.

  5. Implementation – Our role is to make sure your action plan is implemented in a timely manner. After your approval, we will outline a timetable and put your plan into action.

  6. Monitor and Evaluate – We will evaluate and update your Investment Policy Statement on an annual basis. We will continually monitor your progress toward your goals throughout the year and generate new ideas as your financial life evolves.
