At the end of the process, we provide clients with a detailed plan and tasks to help accomplish each goal. Then we achieve each objective in stages depending on the client's specific goals and complexity.
We understand that each client is unique, and financial planning is not one-size-fits-all. So, while we do have a process that we trust to prepare our clients for any situation, regardless of complexity, clients should rest assured knowing that we routinely make adjustments for individual needs.
In this meeting, we will explain how our planning process works and also share our philosophy on the financial world. Most importantly, we will take the time to more clearly define the goals that you and your family would like to achieve during your lifetime. It is this list of goals that will guide the rest of your planning process.
In this meeting, we will bring your entire financial picture into focus. By clarifying the financial data you’ve gathered, we will come to a place of common understanding about exactly how and why your financial world is structured - allowing us to populate your financial Snapshot. This provides a clear starting point to assess where you are now financially to where you’d like to be in the future.
In this meeting, we will take a closer look at the Protection domain of your financial world. Our goal is to make a very frank assessment of how well you are protected from several Eroding Factors. From there, we’ll measure how that level of Protection will impact the other domains of your financial world.
In this meeting, we will examine your current path about the goals you initially laid out for us in the Vision Builder meeting. This will serve as our basis of comparison as we measure the effectiveness of other potential financial strategies. We will weigh factors like protection, flexibility, risk tolerance, tax consequences, and inflation as we simulate various scenarios unfolding across your financial timeline.
Once a strategy is settled upon, we will move from the big picture to the details and implement the tactical changes needed to make the strategy work. The nature of this meeting is always dictated by the strategy that precedes it, but it will routinely include tactical changes to various insurance and investment programs or execution of legal documents as examples.
To cap the initial planning process, we will sit down to assess how far we’ve come through the course of our work together and evaluate the success of our progress towards achieving your goals. Upon successful completion of the process, we hope to have the opportunity to share your experience with others who you believe are a good fit.
