Our advisor/client relationship begins with my listening to your goals and aspirations. I will help you pursue your goals by completing a comprehensive overview of your current financial situation and helping you implement actionable steps into your everyday life.
So what does the financial planning process look like?
Our first interaction will be during a complimentary 30-minute conversation, where we explore your current situation and your vision for your future. Once we’ve mutually agreed to work together, we get started on helping you build a better financial future. We'll have a discovery call, a recommendations meeting, and as many meetings needed to help you implement your plan. You'll also have ongoing support in between meetings throughout the year.
A 60-90 minute Initial Discovery Meeting via video conferencing. The discovery call is all about you, and how we can start to build you a better financial future. During the call we will explore deeper into your goals. We will take a look at where you are today and what you want to accomplish in the future. This call will serve as the basis to create your financial plan. Once completed, I will take all of the information gathered from the discovery call and from the documents you provide, and begin to outline a personalized financial plan.
The next time we meet, I will present you with a comprehensive financial plan based on your financial history, where you stand today, and what your financial goals are for tomorrow. The recommendation is customized to help you pursue your financial goals. Your plan will include a detailed action list that I will help you implement into your day-to-day life. The recommendations include the following:
- An easy-to-read summary of your current net worth, goals, and action items.
- An asset allocation recommendation for your current 401(k) or work retirement plan.
- Life insurance review and recommendations.
- Debt repayment analysis and strategy.
- Recommendation on how to best setup your savings “buckets” to help meet your savings goals.
- Recommendations on investment strategy based on your investment goals.
- Recommendations on retirement planning
- Recommendations on tax planning
- Review of current estate plan (wills, beneficiaries, etc.)
Life will happen. That’s why we have quarterly or semi-annual check-in meetings during the year to ensure that your financial plan is still working for you and your goals. These virtual meetings can be as needed or if a major life event occurs. Additionally, you’ll also have access to phone and email support in between meetings.
