For Individuals

Step 1: The First Appointment

Understanding the big picture is at the core of our approach. We ask a lot of questions, identify your objectives and learn about your goals in order to develop an investment plan that gives you confidence.

Step 2: Request Client Info

We start piecing together your investment plan by assessing your financial statements, risk tolerance and exploring your professional pursuits, charitable interests and personal relationships.

Step 3: Write Investment Plan

Based on our analysis of your unique goals and aspirations, we craft a customized plan just for you. Your plan will be structured so you can live the life you’ve always desired – today and well into retirement.

Step 4: Final Meeting

Your advisor presents their findings, discusses their recommendations and responds to any questions you might have about your plan. If everything is in order, we’ll move forward with the plan. We want to make sure your investment plan aligns with your goals.

Step 5: Ongoing Review

Even a great plan needs adjusting. As your life goes on, the market twists and turns and goals change. We’ll help you make the smart decisions to keep your investment strategy on track.

For Institutions

Step 1: The First Appointment

Our institutional investment process starts the same way as any of our engagements, no matter the size of your institution. We meet with your board of trustees, consultants or investment committee to understand your unique objectives and goals.

Step 2: Gather Documents

We’ll reach out to the necessary parties to collect trust statements, plan documentation, adoption agreements, investment policy statements and anything else we need to further understand your institution’s needs.

Step 3: Current Plan Analysis & Proposal

We dig deep into analyzing your current plan and try to find ways to improve your investment lineup. Based on our analysis, we’ll create a comprehensive proposal that aligns your investments with the goals of your company and your employee base while staying in compliance with current regulations.

Step 4: Final Presentation

With our plan ready to get to work, we meet with your investment committee to discuss key findings and review our offering in more detail. We’ll make any adjustments as needed and address any questions you might have. If everything is correct, we’ll move forward.

Step 5: Ongoing Governance

We maintain a policy of open communication throughout our relationship together. In addition to monitoring service providers and conducting quarterly review meetings, our team is uniquely able to help participants address financial concerns and provide the guidance they need to realize their goals.
