There are no cookie cutter solutions here. We believe every client deserves individualized attention. Although we do follow a standardized process, no two relationships are exactly the same and we offer a variety of services depending on need. Some clients only seek investment management while others are hoping for a full suite of financial advice. We’ve not only helped craft lasting retirements, but also assisted clients with selecting the best auto loan, mortgage, college savings plan, you name it.
Our process follows our philosophy:
Step 1: Introductory phone call or in-person meeting.
The first meeting is an opportunity to learn as much as we can about one another. Good financial advisory relationships should last decades. Personality fit is extremely important and we encourage you to ask us anything that’s on your mind.
Step 2: Analysis and recommendations.
This is our investment in you. We create an actionable financial plan that we call a “5,000 foot view,” which also includes an analysis of your current investment portfolio. There is no cost for this. Bonus: it’s actionable
Step 3: Follow-up meeting.
During our second meeting we will present you with our analysis and recommendations. This offers you an actionable sample of our work to evaluate and determine whether a relationship with us makes sense.
Step 4: Think on it.
There is no “hard sell.” We want you to take our recommendations home and think on them before making a decision.
Step 5: Paperwork.
If you do decide to work with us, we will invite you in to complete all of the necessary paperwork and ask any additional questions.
Step 6: 90-day review.
The final step in our on-boarding process, the 90-day review takes place once your assets have transferred and we have the full picture in front of us. We will update you on our progress implementing our recommendations and discuss a regular review schedule moving forward.
It is said that a financial plan is out of date the minute it’s printed. Once we have tailored a plan that makes the most sense for your time horizon and comfort level, we will assess it on an ongoing basis to make sure we’re always moving in the right direction.
