Financial Planning Process

One of the first things we are asked is, “Where will you put my money?”

Your individual investment plan is designed to integrate and align with the financial goals you establish for you and your family. The asset allocation for your plan considers your personal risk tolerance as well as the level of risk against your financial goals. Modifications are made to your investment plan as required on a periodic basis. Our holistic approach integrates your investment strategy and personal goals.

 

Goals

Financial Goals

Investment goals vary depending on your stage in life. We create a comprehensive financial plan based on your financial position today, your future financial goals and your risk tolerance along the way.

Investment Audit

We will complete an extensive review of your current investments. We look at your current portfolio, the asset allocations and how well it lines up with your goals and the amount of risk that you are comfortable with. We will provide suggestions based on your investment goals.

Risk Assessment

We also will assess your risk tolerance. We can review information like how your proposed portfolio would have fared through various past market events. We can also asses the risk and reward profile for each individual investment we propose for your portfolio, working together to determine risk levels and expected outcomes that you are comfortable with.
