Often people think that financial planning is an event, like drafting a will, but it is a process—an ongoing process. You are at the first step in that process which begins with a discussion about your financial values and objectives. Our team encourages a complimentary get acquainted meeting to explore an overview of your situation, and to fully disclose how we work and answer any questions that you may have. Subsequently, if you decide to enroll our assistance, we will take a confidential review of your present financial situation before beginning a formalized strategy to accomplish your goals.
An important issue we address with our clients is the frequency of future meetings. While your various product providers continue to supply regular updates and reports, they cannot relate performance to personal goals; nor can they communicate the impact world events and regulatory changes could have on your plan. Your circumstances will change, and possibly some of your priorities. We need to review these changes frequently in order to measure the ongoing effectiveness of your plan.
