1. Getting to Know You (Discovery)

This is the starting point. You'll speak with one of our advisors, discuss your situation, and determine whether you'd like to set up an initial fact-finding meeting. We'll discuss your financial situation and your feelings regarding your finances, personal goals, and objectives. We'll listen carefully and guide you through the steps to:

  • Clarify your life goals
  • Challenge investment assumptions
  • Organize your goals by timeframe and priority
  • Understand how specific goals fit into the greater picture of your life

Before we move forward, we'll prepare an engagement letter outlining your situation as we understand it, your stated goals, and any questions or concerns we may have based on the information provided. 

2. Setting Your Personal Course (Evaluate Options/Strategy)

Here we formulate recommendations to support your goals:

  • Demonstrate the impact of particular choices
  • Choose the options that best suit you and your lifestyle
  • Integrate the four key areas of financial planning
