Step 1 – Getting to know each other and Inventory
The very first step for us is getting to know you and you getting to know us. We like to spend as much time as possible or at least as much time as you would like to really get to know our clients. Then we start by analyzing your current financial situation including your current assets, liabilities, monthly expenses and savings. We’ll discuss how much risk you are comfortable with. We will also discuss your financial goals by asking general questions such as:
- What are your plans for retirement? Do you want to travel or buy a vacation home?
- What is Most important to you in your retirement?
- Do you want to leave an inheritance to your spouse/partner, children, heirs, or maybe even a charity?
When you come to our office:
In order for us to create a complete financial plan for you, it is essential to bring to your appointment the most up-to-date financial statements you have for all of your investment and savings-based accounts.
These types of accounts include:
- Mutual Funds
- Exchange Traded Funds
- Retirement Plans (any 401(k), company stock or nonqualified plan)
- Pension Plans
- Life Insurance
- Tax Returns
- Certificates of Deposit (CDs) with interest rates
Next, our team will create your complimentary financial plan and get you on track to achieving your financial objectives – whatever they may be.
Using several types of professional analytic software, any investments and asset that you have are examined to determine your current risk and return rates. This step is also extremely helpful for clients to organize everything in one place. When you become a client of ours you also get your own personalized website that you can view at any time and syncs your accounts and updates them daily.
Step 3 – Forecasting
Using advanced testing tools, we run scenarios of what could happen to your portfolio if you continue on your current investment and financial savings path. These tests include forecasting scenarios so you can see what market fluctuations and other factors may have on your future accounts.
Step 4 – Make Adjustments
After all of that has been done, if our team indicates a better path to success, it is during this crucial step that you will make the important decision to work with us to achieve your financial goals. Once you’ve decided to take this step, we’ll identify any needed adjustments to your investment allocation and determine what strategies are needed in order to reach your goals.
Once you’ve made the decision to work with us, we put together a document outlining what recommendations we have – backed by our team and by our proven process – to get your financial plan started and so you can achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
Finally, after your plan is implemented, we don’t stop there. We’ll continue to monitor and meet with you to review your financial plan and portfolio on a periodic basis to ensure your customized plan still fits with your goals. It’s not a “set it and forget it” approach, because we understand that just like life, your goals can change over time.
