How We Do It

Phase 1:


Before we embark on our journey, we want to get to know you — your hopes, dreams and fears — as well as your financial situation. This will help us determine whether or not we’re a good fit for optimizing your financial outlook to the fullest extent.

Phase 2:


Next, we’ll review all of the documents you provide us and develop a comprehensive picture of your finances. This picture includes your income, expenses, insurance policies, taxes and more to help us gain a solid understanding of your financial situation.

Phase 3:


This presentation is all about educating and empowering you to take control of your financial future. We’ll provide you with individualized recommendations — based on your needs and goals — as well as insight into what we think you should do next.

Phase 4:


Once everyone is on the same page, we will begin opening accounts, making any necessary adjustments and creating benchmarks so we can monitor your progress. Throughout this process, we will make sure our decisions align with your overall vision.

Phase 5:


As life unfolds, we’ll be here to adjust your course as needed. In addition to unlimited access to your advisor, we’ll periodically review your financial plan and situation to ensure you’re getting everything you need, right when you need it. We are always a phone call or email away.
