Our Process


Delivering a disciplined process

With a complex financial life, it’s even more vital to follow a structured plan for success. That’s why we’ve developed a trusted process to help uncover your wishes, wants and needs, and customize a comprehensive plan designed to help fulfill them. No detail is overlooked as we provide personal attention at every stage of our relationship.

A Deep Discovery

Before our established and professional team can serve you, we must first get to know each other to help ensure that our collaboration is the best choice to meet your unique needs. We do this by spending time with you to ascertain and understand your unique goals, overall financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. During this time, we also provide the framework for how we think and operate so you have a clear understanding of our robust capabilities and services, and how they can be tailored to you.

Customizing Your Plan

Our next course of action is to come together as your financial counsel to carefully analyze the totality of information we have discovered. It’s this detailed evaluation that enlightens the decision-making for designing your personal plan. At times, it makes sense to coordinate among your other trusted advisors, such as your attorney and accountant, in order to simplify your plan and help ensure it is well-managed overall. At the end of this phase, we present our tailored recommendations to you – answering questions, considering alternatives and outlining next steps as we move toward implementing your plan.

Executing with Diligence

Once we receive your stamp of approval, our professionals extensively research all elements of your custom plan to prepare for execution. The strategies we’ve selected are aligned with our broad base of in-depth resources, which we access through Raymond James. With your approval, we will execute your customized strategy using the extensive research and resources available to us. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services, and the careful handling of all necessary paperwork.

Managing with Care

After your intricate plan is implemented in alignment with your goals, we will prudently review its progress relative to your defined objectives. As we look to provide guidance beyond your wealth, part of our integrated planning means staying abreast of any changes in your life and advising when changes are needed with your custom plan. Expect our astute team to provide reporting of your account activity and conduct reviews so we can be sure to cover all aspects of your financial future.
