How We Do Things
Whether you’re nearing retirement or are already retired, our goal is to help you enjoy this exciting new chapter to the fullest extent with the financial guidance and advice you need to live comfortably and within your means. Having also been in the business of financial services for nearly 15 years, we are in no hurry for you to make a decision. There is never any pressure to say yes.
Here are the steps you can expect when you work with us:
Initial Phone Call
To start, we’ll hop on the phone for an introductory conversation, where we’ll discuss your financial situation and what you’re wanting to get out of the relationship. This will help us determine whether or not we’re a good fit, as well as give you a better understanding of how we can best serve you.
Next, we’ll invite you to the office to talk more about your needs, goals and concerns. Before you visit, we’ll request that you bring in any relevant financial documents and answers to any outstanding questions we had during our initial phone call. Once we have this information, we can begin our in-depth review. Based on your specific situation and needs, we can engage in a written financial planning agreement.
Analysis & Evaluation
During our review, we’ll answer questions such as is your retirement plan attainable and can your investment allocation be improved. We’ll take a look at both your past and current financial state to compile our recommendations and create a new strategy for your finances and retirement.
After we’ve completed our analysis, we’ll schedule a follow-up meeting where we’ll explain our findings and the rationale behind our recommendations so you have a clear understanding of how we can help you. Then, you’ll have a chance to review our action items and decide if you want to proceed with our services.
To begin implementing your plan, we’ll have you sign some paperwork. Throughout this process, we will continuously monitor your progress towards reaching your goals and make any necessary adjustments as your life — as well as your family’s — evolves.
