Assess

We take a holistic approach to your financial well-being by examining your financial and personal lives. We ask probing questions not only about your financial needs but also about your personal life goals.  During a very in-depth conversation we assess the amount of risk you are comfortable taking to help achieve your goals.

Build

After analyzing your investment, retirement, tax planning, estate planning and any other needs, we create a customized financial roadmap to help you reach your goals by creating a plan for both asset and liability management.  The plan takes into account the time horizon of each goal as well as your personal risk profile.

Execute

Implementing the plan begins with a suggestion for asset allocation based on our top-down assessment of the current U.S. and world economies.  Then we recommend specific equity and fixed income investments chosen with a bottom up approach to determine only those sectors and industries that we believe are currently most likely to succeed.   Portfolio management and monitoring of progress toward your goals are routinely reviewed with you.
