After contacting us, we will respond to you promptly to set-up an initial call or in-person meeting. At our first call or meeting, you will have the opportunity to learn more about us, and ask as many question as you’d like. We will do our best to answer all your questions.
If we both believe there is good potential for an effective working relationship, we will move ahead with additional meetings. In order to provide excellent advice and service, we need to get precise information on your current financial situation, your long-term goals, and issues and concerns you may have along the way.
As part of this process, you will let us know how often you’d like to meet or speak by phone for investment updates, to ask questions, or to discuss changes or adjustments to your investment plan.
Once we have a good understanding of all of these issues, we will help you decide or re-affirm your financial priorities. Then, we will work with you to create a financial plan, as needed, and develop a “proposed” investment portfolio designed to achieve your long-term financial objectives.
Once we have your approval, we will implement your plan by establishing the necessary account(s) (e.g., college savings accounts for your children; retirement accounts for your business; taxable investment accounts for you and your spouse etc.). After you have transferred funds into these accounts and we have obtained your approval, we will make an initial set of investments on your behalf to build your investment portfolio.
Next, you will begin receiving monthly statements for your accounts electronically or by regular mail. You will also receive comprehensive annual statements which include statements for tax-filing purposes. As discussed earlier, we will meet with you periodically to discuss the progress of your investments, and answer your questions whenever they come up.
Finally, as your trusted investment adviser, we are available every weekday by phone or e-mail. Our clients are our highest priority—we make it a point to respond to your calls as soon as possible.
