Our Ideal Client

Our clients are diverse. They work in different industries, live in many different states around the country, and encompass a wide range of family structures and concerns. Most of them are in wealth accumulation mode. For these clients, we focus our planning work to help ensure they are well positioned financially for their future life goals and to create resiliency in their plans to absorb unexpected life events along the way.  Other clients are already retired and in wealth distribution mode. The transition between the two phases is significant and many different types of risk become magnified once a person prepares to draw from their portfolio. We excel at helping our clients navigate these risks and we work to turn assets into sustainable cash flow. Despite differing life phases, there are important similarities among clients that are the best fit for our team.

Client Responsibilities

Our clients appreciate the efforts we make to simplify their lives and streamline the processes and information they need to manage and be aware of on a day to day basis. In order to accomplish this it is important that we develop a full and thorough understanding of their goals, planning assumptions, and total financial picture. Our confidence in our recommendations and advice is based on this understanding. We value clients who are willing to do the work to make sure the information they provide is as accurate and comprehensive as possible. In the beginning, while we are learning about our clients, their situation and goals, there is more to do to as we confidently build the initial plan. We look for a collaborative relationship based on mutual respect and trust. Being responsive to calls, emails and requests for information is an essential part of our relationship.
