Investment Planning and Wealth Accumulation

Overall Objective

Wealth accumulation and management is all about financial independence. The adage "patience is a virtue" applies when it comes to building wealth.  We find investors' short term behavior and impulses influence long-term results. So many external factors such as market swings, economic conditions, job loss, disability, to name a few, can impede wealth accumulation.  We continually monitor your circumstances and guide you to help you overcome obstacles and accumulate wealth. 

Research

Your investment experience with us begins well before you enter our offices.  As trusted advisors, we continuously study and analyze new and existing investment products and strategies. We average around two to three due diligence meetings each week by participating in meetings with portfolio managers and their representatives, economists, and other market experts.  There is vast sea of products and solutions available for use and we choose to stay current.  You want a team that is knowledgable about investment strategies and solutions, with a keen understanding of how to use them properly while navigating the labyrinth of income and estate tax laws. We are committed to a life-long practice of learning and keeping up with relevant financial planning issues. We feel that this commitment helps to differentiate us from the next investment advisor or advisory firm and encourages you to invest with confidence and trust.

Asset Allocation

In order to help you achieve your goals, more often than not, we believe that using multiple asset allocation strategies is better than relying on one.  It’s our expectation they won’t dilute performance, when positioned correctly, rather increase risk management and opportunities for performance over time. Multiple strategies increase the sources of market participation and protection in your portfolio to be prepared for dynamic markets and may aid in expense management. 

We also believe you deserve to have your portfolio rebalanced with a sound rebalancing strategy.  This will keep you portfolio on the path chosen to achieve your needs, selling high and buying low, and will ensure your portfolio hasn’t grown to hold too much or too little risk. 

All of this, most importantly, is to instill your confidence and trust when encountering dynamic markets and to help you achieve you succeed with your investments.

Investment Planning Process

When it comes to managing your portfolio and guiding you we apply our investment planning process:

  • Discovery and Analysis - What are your needs, what have you accumulated, and how do you invest today?
  • Recommendation - Should you keep your portfolio as is, or what are other options? 
  • Implementation - What and when is the best way to make changes to your portfolio; are your accounts setup with the right registrations and beneficiary designations that will help you pay less taxes and keep more of your estate in tact?
  • Monitoring - How have things changed with your circumstances and those around you since we last met and is it necessary to make changes to your portfolio?

As your investment objectives usually differ from the next investor, we like to stress test your portfolio initially and continually and to assess your confidence with market risks.  We do this thoroughly to maintain the portfolio that is best for you.
