Our Process


Step 1 Discovery

We use a variety of tools including questionnaires and interviews to understand your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. In this step we make you fully aware of our capabilities and provide educational support to assist in understanding our core values and the scope of our wealth management services.


Step 2 Design

We develop solutions to help meet your goals. This will involve our ongoing process of identifying and monitoring best in class managers and programs that meet your needs. It also may involve working with other advisers in areas such as estate planning. We will present our recommendation, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps we need to take to implement your plan.


Step 3 Implementation

We execute your customized strategy using the extensive tools available to us. This involves the selection of account types and processing the necessary paperwork and transfers to facilitate the implementation of your strategy.


Step 4 Manage

We continually monitor your strategy and situation, and suggest changes as conditions change. A key to this step is your involvement in the process and communication of any significant changes in your life. We accomplish this by providing ongoing reporting of your account activity and by conducting periodic reviews which include:

  • Discovery - What is going on in your life that impacts our plan
  • Market Outlook - How are market conditions affecting your plan
  • Plan Review - How is your plan doing with respect to long-term goals and expectations
  • Wrap-up and Next Steps - Summarizing our agreed upon action items
