First Conversations are about YOU – your hopes, your fears, and your goals. This is where we start building a professional confidential relationship. Integrity is a priority.

  • Accumulation Phase - This is the time where you can easily have an amount transferred from your bank each month and never miss it. Learn to pay yourself first and accumulate wealth by experiencing the magic of compounding. Advisory is available for your 401K.
  • Retirement - No matter how much you have accumulated, the thought of no longer receiving a paycheck can be unsettling. Deep down you may not be 100% convinced you have enough, or fear running out of money. You may end up working longer than needed or spending more cautiously than you wish.
  • Estate Planning - As part of your financial team we work with you, your accountant, and attorney developing a customized estate plan that enables you to maintain the lifestyle you deserve now while also building a financial legacy. Building your legacy could include trusts, charitable giving, education funding, wealth replacement strategies, complete trust services, tax strategies and more.

By listening, we will determine what amount of capital that is needed to achieve your goals in a certain time frame and what rate of return is needed with the least amount of risk. It is important that we constantly seek investments that keep pace with inflation that fit the risk tolerance for your specific needs.

Then we design a customized diversified portfolio with low-correlation assets. If you are in retirement we can schedule monthly distributions into your bank account or if you are accumulating wealth we can transfer money from your bank. We can advise you on your insurance needs.

The plan is reviewed with you to help you achieve your goals. Rebalancing should be an integral part of your overall investment plan. We help manage with tax minimization strategies to help build and preserve your wealth. It is your job to inform us of life changes and ours to review current economic conditions for future rebalancing strategies.

  • Assess

    As we listen to you, we learn about your objectives, your perspective on risk and your liquidity needs. We then devise a plan to support your personal goals through professional investment management and strategic planning.

  • Create

    Using the details you have confided in us and our access to high-caliber research and analysis, we narrow down a selection of investments and an allocation tailored to your financial objectives. We will then present our recommendations and outline the steps needed to implement your plan.

  • Implement

    Once you have approved the plan, we put it into action by choosing investment vehicle types and services uniquely suited to your needs, goals and risk tolerance. We craft your portfolio carefully, making the most of the choices available to serve your precise situation.

  • Manage

    After establishing your plan, we continue to monitor its progress toward your objectives and ensure it keeps working for you through all of life’s changes, continually updating you and providing ongoing support. We stay abreast of what’s ahead, helping you remain equipped for the challenges of tomorrow.
