Our Process

With structure comes simplicity.

Our wealth management process seeks to deliver a structured approach to developing and maintaining your investment plan.

Our thorough process allows us to help you stay on track with your goals, and help you reach them. Your plan information is kept organized, accessible and current, helping you make the most of potential financial opportunity while seeking to avoid unnecessary fees and taxes along the way. We keep you informed of results and comfortable with our progress through regular reports to you and your other advisors. Ongoing periodic reviews help ensure that your plan remains in alignment with your goals, and allow us to make minor adaptations as they change over time. With a structured plan and a process for maintaining it in place, we strive to keep you informed of what's been done, what's coming next, and that we're taking care of it.

Step 1:

Is there a fit?

Not every advisor is a good match for every client.  At our initial meeting, we’ll introduce you to our process and approach, and how we are compensated. We'll also get to know about you and your needs, and decide if it makes sense for us to work together.

Step  2:


In step 2, we’ll engage in an intense and thorough discovery process to help uncover the details of your wealth situation, including strengths, dangers and opportunities.  We’ll gain a complete understanding of exactly what you want your plan to accomplish, and how your other advisors fit into the overall strategy.

Step 3:


Now that we understand your current situation and goals, we’ll analyze what we’ve learned and define a clear wealth management strategy that focuses on your key issues and addresses potential problem areas.

Step 4:


Once defined, we'll guide you through implementation of your strategy.  We will assist you in establishing new accounts, initiating the account transfer process, and providing online access instructions.  We’ll also provide you with your own customized Personal Financial Organizer, which organizes important information and details about your specific plan.

Step 5:


After the initial execution of your plan, we’ll continue to coordinate and oversee your investment portfolio, and make sure it stays on track with your goals.  Quarterly performance reports and periodic review meetings will keep us up to date with any changes in your life, and you and your other advisors up to date with our progress on an ongoing basis.
