Our Financial Planning Services The foundation of our Wealth Management Programs is your Financial Plan. Through the planning process, your advisors will generate high quality, continuous and consistent planning advice, resulting in timely implementation of your financial planning recommendations. The preparation of a Financial Plan is also important, because it provides an opportunity for you to organize your personal and financial information, as well as your legal documents, formulate your personal and financial goals and objectives, develop an Investment Policy Statement, and communicate all of the above and much more to your team of Advisors. Using Goals-Based Planning to Help You Continuously Monitor Your Financial Planning Progress All three Wealth Management Programs utilize goals based financial plans because it allows for better communication with our clients. A goals-based financial plan projects the growth of your investment assets and determines the probability of you meeting your financial goals. Your planning progress is regularly monitored to assess what steps need to be taken, if any, to increase the probability that you will meet your goals.
