What We Do

It all begins with building personal relationships based on trust with our clients. This provides the foundation for the team to understand a client’s life goals and ultimately deliver a plan designed to achieve those objectives in a comfortable manner.
We strive to help our clients achieve their goals for building and preserving retirement income, living in retirement, managing trust and estate issues as they relate to our investment plans, wealth transfer strategies, business owner transition tactics, and any other wealth management goals our clients are facing.
As professional advisors, our goal is to help our clients achieve the best returns possible with the least amount of risk necessary to achieve those goals. We develop sound investment plans – making any necessary changes based on life events and life stages – aimed at ensuring the best likelihood of success.

“Becoming wealthy is not a matter of how much you earn, who your parents are, or what you do … It is a matter of managing your money properly.”

Our Planning Process

Our wealth management process hinges on successful collaboration between our team and our clients. Our process is designed to establish and deepen relationships while implementing strong investment plans built based on decades of wealth management experience.

The Envision® Process of Wells Fargo Advisors is a method to identify, define, and achieve your goals. Combining goals-based advice with sophisticated statistical modeling, this unique process creates an effective, easy-to-understand method for you to prioritize and achieve important life goals.

The Envision process offers you an effective way to identify your highest-priority goals and develop an investment plan designed to provide you with the wealth you need to live your life the way you want. Instead of tracking your portfolio’s performance against a standardized index, such as the S&P 500, we monitor your progress toward achieving your life goals on your own fully customized index. It includes:

Identifying what is important in your life and helping you prioritize your financial goals
Coordinating and integrating cohesive solutions for all your financial affairs, including wills, mortgages, insurance, and “tax-smart” strategies
Creating a well-balanced, diversified portfolio based on your objectives, risk tolerance, and investment time horizon
You can monitor your results, reviewing changes in your circumstances, and adjusting your investment strategy as necessary based on your situation

IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by Envision regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time. 

Envision® methodology: Based on accepted statistical methods, the Envision tool uses a simulation model to test your Ideal, Acceptable and Recommended Investment Plans. The simulation model uses assumptions about inflation, financial market returns and the relationships among these variables. These assumptions were derived from analysis of historical data. Using Monte Carlo simulation, the Envision tool simulates 1,000 different potential outcomes over a lifetime of investing varying historical risk, return, and correlation amongst the assets. Some of these scenarios will assume strong financial market returns, similar to the best periods of history for investors. Others will be similar to the worst periods in investing history. Most scenarios will fall somewhere in between.
