our Approach


Our detail-oriented approach helps ensure that all essential elements of your business, individual and/or family blueprint are examined and addressed.
Our bespoke process centers on you and your goals as our primary concern. We will take the following steps in our work together.

Step #1 — Understand

Who are you and what do you want to accomplish?

We believe in the importance of building long-term relationships with clients. To begin the process, we have conversations to get to know you, your goals for the future, your financial situation and any challenges you may face on the road toward achieving your dreams. This helps us develop a plan based on what is most important to you.

In our initial conversations, our goal is to understand:

  • Your family situation and the people who are most important to you
  • Your goals and dreams for the future
  • What organizations and activities you’re most passionate about
  • Your current personal situation – health, family, hobbies, etc.
  • Your current financial situation – assets and liabilities, income sources, tax situation, real estate and personal property, investment allocation, etc.
  • Your current employment situation – self-employed, business owner, corporate executive, just starting out, nearing retirement, etc.
  • Any current strategies in place to generate income from your savings
  • Any challenges or concerns that may interfere with accomplishing your long-term goals

Step #2 — Assess

Where are you on the path toward achieving your goals? What services and support do you need to help you along the way?

Once we understand who you are and what you wish to accomplish, we conduct a thorough analysis of your current finances, account types, asset allocation, tax liabilities, debt obligations, monthly cash flow and more.

Through this evaluation, we begin to identify what services and support you may need to help accomplish your goals. We enlist the support of our in-house professionals to determine how we can best support you going forward.

Based on your specific goals, we also identify opportunities to help reduce your taxes, enhance your investment performance, save more for retirement, plan for major purchases, leave a legacy for heirs, build employee morale and retention through strong employee benefits and/or executive comp, and more.

Step #3 — Develop

What specific strategies can improve your financial outlook?

Once we have conducted a detailed analysis of your current financial situation and gained an understanding of your short-term, mid-term and long-term goals, we develop a blueprint to help meet your needs. This plan includes our specific recommendations to help protect and grow your assets, enhance your savings efforts, reduce your tax liability, retain key employees, and plan for a lifetime of needs.

We take a comprehensive approach to building your plan. While we recognize that investments play a key role in ensuring the success of our planning efforts, they are only one piece of a much larger puzzle. That is why our recommendations include not only asset allocation but also a wide range of strategies to help you achieve your life goals.

Once we have drafted your blueprint, we meet with you to discuss our recommendations and make any adjustments necessary based on your feedback.

Step #4 — Implement

Now it’s time to put your plan into action.

Once you’re comfortable with our recommendations, we take the lead in implementing the appropriate strategies. We help coordinate the asset transfer process, initiate new account paperwork, update beneficiaries, set up and/or refine executive comp and employee benefit plans, and reallocate investment assets to help ensure a seamless transition. As your trusted financial advisory partner, we’re available when you need us to answer any questions that may arise throughout the process.

Step #5 — Monitor

We continually watch to ensure that your blueprint evolves as your life unfolds and goals/vision shift.

While some financial professionals take a “set-it-and-forget-it” approach to wealth management, we view your situation at regular intervals to help ensure our advice and your plan continues to meet the needs of your changing life and goals. We make adjustments as necessary to give you the most suitable chance of achieving your objectives, even as they change over time.

We meet with you at least annually to update your plan, revisit your goals, and conduct a performance review. We also meet with you anytime big life changes could potentially impact your progress. And, we’re always available to answer your questions and address any concerns.
