Money is personal. We believe investors deserve a partner that will provide them with a bespoke investment experience tailored to their needs and objectives.
Getting a clear understanding of an investor’s financial life…
Starting smart begins by getting a clear understanding of an investor’s current financial situation and how they would like it to progress to help meet their future lifestyle goals and objectives.
During this process we get to know our prospective clients by gathering information pertaining to their personal values, financial goals, and existing financial accounts. We also evaluate their attitudes toward six universal financial planning considerations and conduct a Value at Risk (VaR) analysis.
Six Fundamental Financial Planning Considerations
Our six fundamental financial planning considerations are potential barriers investors may face when working toward their goals. We believe that it’s important to evaluate investor sentiment towards each consideration through a succinct questionnaire. This allows us to examine the potential effects of these considerations on an investor’s assets today and in the future.
Value at Risk (VaR) Analysis
Within the initial review, we help investors understand their risk threshold. We do this by deploying a Value at Risk (VaR) Analysis that helps us quantify attitudes toward financial uncertainty, specifically one’s emotional tolerance with respect to the magnitude and speed of potential investment loss.
This Analysis produces a VaR Score that is indexed on a scale from conservative to aggressive. The VaR Score can help us determine if the current portfolio aligns with the investor’s risk tolerance and provides insight as to whether changes to that portfolio are needed.
A holistic investment plan for growing and protecting wealth…
Our discipline is built on the foundation of holistic planning and how investment and insurance solutions can work in concert to help mitigate six fundamental financial planning considerations, within a desired risk tolerance, so our clients have the confidence to handle market cycles.
This includes evaluating and incorporating strategies for working to…
- Secure guaranteed income for life
- Structure assets for future unexpected expenses
- Protect purchasing power over time
- Optimize returns within desired risk tolerance
- Provide for and efficiently transfer assets to beneficiaries
- Mitigate tax liabilities throughout the investment process
