Simplify your life.
I take a holistic approach to your financial needs. Together we discuss your unique situation long before any recommendations are made. Once I have a complete understanding of your situation, I create and implement a comprehensive financial and investment plan that serves as your financial road map. Your plan is dynamic and evolves with you as your life changes. I follow a planning process that is robust and thorough, leaving no stone unturned.
A good fit is essential to success. We schedule a brief phone call to make sure your needs match my expertise. If I am not the right advisor for you, I will be happy to point you in the right direction.
We begin by taking a deep dive to discover more about you, your needs and your objectives. Your investment portfolio, retirement plans, insurance coverages, tax planning, estate planning, as well as any additional areas are thoroughly reviewed.
I can help you answer important financial questions like:
When should I plan for retirement, and how do I construct a sustainable, long-term income plan?
Is my portfolio as tax-efficient as it could be?
Am I paying too much in fees and expenses?
If I live to 105 will I run out of money?
If I get hit by a bus tomorrow will my family be ok?
How do I plan for long-term care?
How do I pay for my children or grandchildren’s college education?
What is the best way to pass assets on to the next generation?
How do I plan for goals such as charitable giving or a second home?
This step is where it all comes together. Your written game plan is created for achieving your goals. Your plan will guide the management of your investment portfolio, as well as all other aspects of your planning needs. We will address any questions that you have, and discuss the next steps in the planning process. At this point, I usually ask you if you would like to begin working together, or if you need more time to decide. No pressure.
First, we answer any outstanding questions, and explain to you how the new client process works. Next, we begin implementing your plan with careful attention to detail. I will work seamlessly with your current tax and legal advisors, or introduce you to new advisors, if you are looking for a new relationship.
We regularly review and monitor your progress to make sure you are on track to meeting your goals. After all, life is unpredictable and change is inevitable.
My mission is to help you understand and handle risk, remind you of your goals, and to stay on track with your plan. When investors are confronted with short-term market fluctuations, or other economic or political events, they may make rash, irrational decisions and mistakes. It’s just human nature. I provide significant value by ensuring that my clients are focused on what matters most.
