Pre-client Interview Process
3 simple steps
NOT ALL ADVISERS ARE CREATED EQUAL & IT'S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHY.
Finding the right advising team and approach is one of the most important financial decisions you'll make in your lifetime.
Interviewing multiple firms is always encouraged. Doing so helps you feel much more confident that you made the right decision.
An interview should result in a clear and transparent understanding in the following areas:
PLANNING | What is the firm's approach and process to creating, monitoring, and adapting a comprehensive financial plan?
INVESTMENT STRATEGY | Is their investment strategy simple to understand, easy to implement, and can it be replicated for all clients?
INVESTMENT PRINCIPLES | Does the adviser have fundamental investment principles and are they able to showcase how those principles are incorporated into their clients' investment strategies?
COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENT | Is the adviser's fee straightforward, transparent, and fair? Is it clear what services are included in their fee?
VALUE PROPOSITION | Can the adviser easily articulate the value they bring to the client/adviser relationship?
Interview us and learn how and why we are passionate about clearly answering these important questions.

Improvise & ADAPT
FINANCIAL PLANNING IS NOT A ONE-TIME EVENT - IT'S A PROCESS THAT MUST BE REFINED OVER TIME. WE MAKE THAT HAPPEN.
Even the most well thought-out plans are subject to life's uncertainties. One thing that is always constant in life, is change.
As your life and investments mature, so should your living and breathing financial plan.
There are many assumptions and variables that can both positively and negatively affect your plan. A plan that doesn't take those moving variables into consideration is a plan that is likely to fail.
A well-structured plan provides a simple framework to evaluate and adapt to life's inevitable changes.
