Our unique financial planning process, Legacy for Life® includes four distinct phases:
Phase One: Discovery
We meet with you to gain an understanding of your current situation, your risk tolerance and the goals for you and your loved ones. You will also become more familiar with our philosophies, investment strategies and approach to helping you with strategies that seek to maintain and grow your wealth.
Phase Two: Set the Compass
After we analyze and evaluate your financial status and understand what’s most important to you, our team will help position your portfolio to take advantage of cash flow opportunities. During this process, we will work with you and your other professional advisors to develop a detailed plan centered on your goals and dreams.
Phase Three: Progress Report
You will receive a written step-by-step process of the recommended strategies we tailor to fit your unique needs, and continue to present new opportunities as the needs of you and your loved ones evolve with the passage of time.
Phase Four: Living Your Legacy
One of our CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners will monitor your cash flow and net worth on a quarterly basis to ensure your strategies are effectively working for you. This will include ongoing communication and collaboration with your other professional advisors, when necessary.
