Personalizing your plan
A personalized financial plan serves as our team’s blueprint for pursuing and potentially achieving your goals. Our process gives us an orderly way for moving forward and fully addressing your needs. We’ll put a lot of care into knowing you as a person and as an investor, evident at every stage during the design, implementation and management of the plan we ultimately create for you.
We begin by listening. Essentially, we want to learn everything we can about you, including your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. Our conversation in conjunction with our planning experience helps us ensure that your goals and our strategy for pursuing them are well-aligned. We’ll also make you aware of our capabilities and explain the services we offer.
After meeting with you one or two times, we will analyze what you’ve shared with us to design your plan. This step may include collaborating with your other professional advisors such as your accountant and lawyer. We then present our recommendations to you, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps we need to take to implement your plan.
With your approval, we will execute your customized strategy using the extensive research and resources available to us. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services, and the handling of all necessary paperwork.
Once your plan is implemented, we will continually monitor the progress of your plan relative to your defined objectives and suggest any changes where needed. You can help us by letting us know about any significant changes in your life, which could have an impact on your plan. We’ll provide ongoing reporting of your account activity and have quarterly reviews to keep track of your progress.
