UNDERSTANDING YOUR 'WHY'
We take the time to understand your unique goals, issues and plans to learn more about your concerns around your wealth and your life. What are the risks and opportunities most relevant to you? Are you addressing these matters? What should change? Let us show you how we will help design a clear direction for you.
Once we learn where you are, where you would like to be and what is most important to you, we will begin assembling all of that input into a plan for you. We will collaborate with you and your other tax and legal advisors to consider your values, tax and estate issues, risk factors or special needs unique to you to develop a well thought out plan that will help you navigate the next chapters of your life.
INVESTMENTS AND BEYOND
Going well beyond investments, we will help you take deliberate steps to address your most pressing concerns. Advanced planning helps you address areas such as risk management, business succession, charitable giving, tax planning or helping you to prepare your loved ones for a potential inheritance. This is your plan and it’s created to help you accomplish what’s most important to you.
NAVIGATING THE COURSE
Your investment plan is written into an Investment Policy Statement which serves as a roadmap describing how your funds will be placed to align with your big picture planning needs. Regular meetings and planning sessions with you and your other professional advisors enable us to make certain all your risk planning and tax issues are also addressed and kept up to date. Perhaps most importantly, we make ourselves available whenever needed to meet with you to review what is on your mind, how life may have changed and talk through how we can continue to best help you stay on track. After all, planning is a marathon, not a sprint.
