6-step Financial Strategy Process
STEP 1: Establishing and defining the client-advisor relationship
We explain or document the services to be provided and define the responsibilities along with the responsibilities of the client. The advisor and client should agree on how long the relationship will last and on how decisions will be made.
STEP 2: Gathering client data and determining goals and expectations
We will asks about your financial situation, personal and financial goals and attitude about risk. We then gather all necessary documents at this stage before giving you any sound advice.
STEP 3: Analyzing and evaluating the client's financial status
We analyze the information to assess your current situation to determine what must be done to achieve your goals. Depending on the services requested, this assessment could include analyzing your assets, liabilities and cash flow, current insurance coverage, investments or tax strategies.
STEP 4: Developing and presenting the financial strategy recommendations and/or alternatives
We will offer educated recommendations that address your goals, based on the information you have provided. We review our professional recommendations with you to allow you to make the best informed decisions. We listen to your concerns and considerations, and revise our recommendations as appropriate.
STEP 5: Implementing the financial strategy recommendations
We work with you to agree upon how each recommendation should be carried out. Together, we may choose to have us carry out the recommendations for you or serve as a "coach", coordinating the process with you and other professionals such as attorneys or stockbrokers.
