The Way I Do Business
When working with clients, I follow a procedure which has
proven effective in helping people develop a sound financial
management program. These steps include:
- Needs Assessment / Goal Setting.
In a private one-on-one meeting, we discuss your current
investment needs and goals for the future. If you are not
sure what your needs are, don't worry. We know the right
questions to ask to help formulate a plan that will work
- Financial Review / Action Plan.
A written financial plan will be provided for you, prioritizing
your goals and a step-by-step course of action to achieve
At the same time your recommendations will be presented,
it will be explained why these investments, were chosen
and how they fit your overall plan. You will be explained
everything that you will need to know about the various
investments and their alternatives.
- Education continued...
Risks and potential problems will be explained so clients
know exactly what to expect from their portfolio.
All details will be handled with regards to the implementation
of your program, including setting up your account, verifying
confirmation statements, and helping you understand statements
and other documents you will receive in the mail.
- Ongoing Monitoring / Communications.
Your account will be overseen on a continuous basis
and you will be alerted to any changes that may be necessary
as a result of movements in the markets or revisions in
your investment goals. I will also take care of the administrative
functions required to maintain your account and keep you
advised as to the status of your portfolio.
