Our four-step financial planning process is designed to be a road map to get you where you want to go while providing flexibility to adapt to changes along the route.
Where are you and where do you want to be?
During our meeting, we discuss your goals and concerns before we start gathering data. The financial facts and figures are important, but it’s not the whole story. We learn about your values and dreams, as well as what keeps you up at night, so that we can serve you better.
How can you get to where you want to be?
We develop a customized financial plan that shows where you are in relation to where you want to be. We present different scenarios that show the impact of your options so you can choose how to accomplish your goals in a way that is meaningful to you and how you want to live your life. We also stress test the scenarios to see how your plan will hold up to challenges like lower returns or higher inflation.
What are you willing to do to get there?
A plan has no value if it’s not implemented. You choose the scenarios and options that are right for you, and we act as your accountability partner to ensure the plan is implemented. We break the actions into manageable steps and help you prioritize so you’re not overwhelmed. We also help with additional resources like attorneys, accountants, and other professionals that may be needed.
What happens when life happens to your plan?
We stay engaged with your plans because life happens, both good and bad. Fluctuating markets, career changes, liquidity events, changes in the laws, and health concerns can impact your plan. Proactive planning can keep you on track toward your goals.
