Financial planning is at the very core of the life planning services we provide to individuals and families seeking to build, preserve and manage wealth over time.
Retirement income planning, education planning, tax and estate planning, and risk management services are components of a larger, more comprehensive financial plan designed to achieve multiple financial and lifestyle goals. Your plan also provides for your heirs and defines the legacy you choose to leave.
Our financial planning process consists of five key steps:
Getting to Know You
In the discovery phase of our planning process we help you identify key goals and objectives on your path to success. We work with you to complete a comprehensive investor profile that documents short-, intermediate- and long-term goals, current income needs, risk tolerance and other factors that will help define your unique path.
Assessing Your Needs
We gather and analyze your financial statements and evaluate current strategies to determine if they are aligned with your goals and objectives. We proactively identify financial challenges and potential opportunities and model various recommendations and scenarios so you can visualize potential outcomes and make more confident decisions.
Preparing Your Plan
Utilizing insight from our team of experienced advisors and unbiased third-party research, we develop a personalized financial analysis and recommendations based on fundamental principles of strategic asset allocation and diversification, as well as strategic tax and risk management considerations.
Implementing Your Strategy
Implementation begins with ensuring the proper allocation of your assets and investments in financial products that are well suited to your risk tolerance and needs. We thoroughly assess and discuss the pros and cons of each recommendation with you, as well as exit strategies, should your needs change. We help you choose those that best suit your needs and put you on a comfortable course to pursuing your unique vision.
Monitoring Your Progress
As experienced financial advisors we understand that life seldom follows a straight path toward your goals. Financial markets and the economy are in constant flux and your personal, professional and family circumstances are subject to change over time. We maintain consistent communication with you as we carefully monitor your portfolio and make adjustments, as needed.
