What is the process?

A proper comprehensive financial plan takes on average 20+ hours to prepare and depending on the complexity could take many, many more.

Initial Interview

The process begins with a 1-2 hour interview where we ask many questions to get a big picture of your situation and encourage you to think about areas you may not have considered. It concludes with both of us signing an engagement agreement outlining each others roles and responsibilities.

Data Gathering

We ask you to fill out a comprehensive questionnaire and supply us with copies of investment documents, insurance policies, mortgage documents, Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trust indentures, incorporation documents, tax returns, and any other pertinent information.

Data Analysis

We take all the data and the information from the initial interview and draw up an initial draft of the plan with some solutions and recommendation.

Draft Plan Review Interview

Together we review the draft plan and discuss your likes and dislikes about it and encourage you to offer up additional suggestions as to how you would like see the plan. This typically takes about 2-3 hours depending on the complexity.

Preparing the Plan

At this stage we refine the numbers, incorporate the ideas and solutions identified and suggested, and put together a final plan.

Plan Review

Together we review the plan thoroughly to ensure you completely understand and agree with all aspects of it. We will continue to adjust the plan until you are 100% satisfied with it.
