advisor
  • Together, we collaborate on a vision for your future through in-depth conversations about a wide range of topics and review all documents related to your current financial position.
  • After processing the information provided, a plan is created to quantify the goals, identify pitfalls to success, and possibly enhance potential outcomes.
  • We review the findings and make final alterations before we begin solving outstanding issues and taking full advantage of identified strengths.
  • A Customized Educational Curriculum is embarked upon to help each client achieve the peace of mind associated with fully understanding his/her options for improving cash flow, financial position, exposure to risk, and, ultimately, chance at exceeding stated objectives.
  • We spend the requisite time to create a Personalized Investment Policy Statement and manage investable assets as appropriate (see Actively Managed Portfolios for more info).
  • Clients can update the goals and assumptions or just monitor the progress of their financial plan at their leisure through an Internet portal available 24/7.
  • The Advisor will be updating the online plan on a regular basis and will share findings at scheduled reviews.
  • As desired by the client(s), family members are brought in the loop on matters of cross-affectation and are welcome to ask questions pertaining to their own situation under strict confidence.

Actively Managed Portfolios

Governed by a Personalized Investment Policy Statement

  • The purpose of this exercise is to manage the portfolio as the clients would if they had the time, interest, and/or information the advisor possesses.
  • Either through the financial planning process or the Retirement Quick Sheet, the rate of return needed from your portfolio is determined; this helps us funnel down to the appropriate level of aggression to balance Equity versus Fixed Income positions in accordance with needs and personal preferences.
  • The PIPS will help guide the discussion with regard to ways your portfolio has been constructed and will be augmented in preparation for its intended future use.
  • This provides the Advisor with the opportunity to educate on the differences between individual securities like (Common Stock and Bonds) and packaged products (like ETFs and open-end or closed-end Mutual Funds).
  • You’ll be able to design your own strategy to have the portfolio work for you in up/down markets.
  • It will bring about discussion on ancillary portfolio options of hedging and sector investing.
  • Your investment policy will take your tax bracket and personal preferences into consideration when placing investments for income versus capital gains in different account types.
  • Once the policy is created, your portfolio will undergo daily monitoring and semi-annual re-balancing.
  • With all the information, designing a withdrawal policy to meet income needs and manage current and future tax liability will be stress-free.
  • Due to the number of permutations the clients’ answers provided and the vastness of quality investment choices available, no two clients will have the same portfolio as one another.
