The objective of the Initial Meeting is to allow us to get to know each other. The meeting will focus primarily on "your story", regarding you, your family, your values, concerns and financial objectives - both business and personal. This allows both parties to get a better idea of if there is a mutual fit and can work together to meet your long term needs.
The meeting will focus upon your basic needs, goals, expectations, fears, financial history and current financial position. Upon conclusion of the Initial Meeting you will be given more details about the products and solutions we can provide you. We would ask you complete a Family Snapshot Questionnaire, a Financial Priorities Checklist, an Investment Objectives and Risk Questionnaire, a "What Kind of Investor Are You?" and "How Can We Serve You?" surveys. These are essential in allowing us to create your Wealth Management Roadmap so we have as much information as possible to provide the best possible advice.
The objective of the Discovery Meeting is to review major themes discussed during the Initial Meeting as well as the questionnaires and surveys. This will assist us in understanding your priorities and in formulating both your financial plan and asset management plans. It will also give us the ability to review your current situation in more detail and make sure we have all relevant information available to us in drafting your financial strategy. We will also determine how involved you would like to be in the investment process. This then allows us to determine which asset management solution is suitable for you, your family and your business to reach your goals.
The objective of the Strategy Meeting is to outline and review your financial strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and create a financial action plan. We will also present an asset management plan to demonstrate how we propose to invest your assets according to your time horizon, investment objectives and risk tolerance. We will review your Family Snapshot which outlines major themes in regards to your financial picture and the timeline to address them, an Investment Policy Statement that outlines the stewardship of your assets and how your portfolio will be guided now and in the future and a Asset Management Proposal that will outline in detail how we propose to manage your assets to meet your objectives.
If, at this point, you agree with our proposed strategy and we both feel there is value in moving forward, we would need your commitment to formalize the relationship and become a client. We will answer any questions or concerns you may have about your plan and have you sign some documentation to open applicable accounts, initiate asset transfers and/or apply insurance solutions.
90 Day Follow-Up
The purpose of 90 Day Follow Up is to ensure we are on track. We will discuss your wealth management action plan as well help you get better familiarized with tools available to you so you understand exactly what is happening with your asset management plan. We will outline how to read the various statements and material you receive and answer any questions or concerns you may have to that point.
Regular Progress Meetings
These meetings will be scheduled based upon your financial planning and asset management needs. They are essentially the foundation for our ongoing consultative service. These meetings provide us both with regular opportunities to discuss and review the status of your plans and portfolio as well as to determine if any significant changes have occurred in your life that would necessitate an adjustment to your wealth management plan. At this point we can also review the Investment Policy Statement and the Family Snapshot to see if there are any changes or further needs to address.
