How we work.
How do I get started?
So you’re ready to get started? Great!
Give us a call to speak with one of our team members. Once we know a little more about you, we can schedule a meeting to get further acquainted. We will discuss the process of putting an analysis together for you, which typically includes an in-depth portfolio analysis coupled with baseline capital projections indicating whether or not you are on the right track financially and where improvements are needed.
Our introductory meeting will cover a range of items. So that we can make an accurate assessment of your current financial situation, we recommend you bring the most recent monthly statement for each financial account you and your spouse have including:
- Mutual funds
- Personal brokerage accounts
- Stock options
- Savings accounts/CDs
- Company sponsored retirement plans (401(k), 403(b), etc.)
- Pension plan information/estimates
- 529 plans for college savings
There is no charge for this meeting. Your biggest investment at this stage of the process is the time it will take to gather together your personal account data and meet with us.
We look forward to meeting you!
