We listen.  We ask.  We educate and inform.  We strategize and partner.  We seek to understand your financial circumstances, your goals, and your risk profile.

We plan and advise.

 

Comprehensive Planning

All clients are different.  We provide comprehensive, fee-only solutions for all areas of your financial life, ranging from investment planning to asset protection.  We take a holistic and comprehensive approach because everything about your global financial life is important.  It’s a customized process to you because success is not measured by performance relative to other managers, rather we measure success by helping you meet your life goals.  Comprehensive financial planning combines personal investment management, financial advisory, and planning disciplines directly for the benefit of our clients.

Comprehensive Financial Planning is more than the active management of investments or creating a retirement plan or regular check-ups of a portfolio. We believe in planning for, and prudently addressing life events, whether you are buying a home, planning for a child’s education, preparing for eventual retirement, creating an estate plan, or preparing for Plan B.

Investment Management

We start with a series of conversations to determine with time and dollar specificity, and in priority, your personal goals, evaluate existing investment assets, determine your risk tolerance, develop a strategic asset allocation strategy, engineer and draft your investment policy statement.

This document serves as your blueprint reflecting your needs, risk profile, and how we will allocate your assets between various investment classes. From the IPS, we will develop an investment strategy for you and your family based on our careful review of available investment options, taxation, costs, risk and expected return.

We then implement your plan and coordinate with your CPAs, attorneys, and other advisors as appropriate.  We continuously monitor your progress rebalancing of your investment strategy and recommend changes as needed.
