6-step Financial Strategy Process


STEP 1: Establishing and defining the client-advisor relationship

We explain or document the services to be provided and define the responsibilities along with the responsibilities of the client. The advisor and client should agree on how long the relationship will last and on how decisions will be made.

STEP 2: Gathering client data and determining goals and expectations

We will ask about your financial situation, personal and financial goals and attitude about risk. We then gather all necessary documents at this stage before giving you any sound advice.

STEP 3: Analyzing and evaluating the client's financial status

We analyze the information to assess your current situation to determine what must be done to achieve your goals. Depending on the services requested, this assessment could include analyzing your assets, liabilities and cash flow, current insurance coverage, investments or tax strategies.

STEP 4: Developing and presenting the financial strategy recommendations and/or alternatives

We will offer educated recommendations that address your goals, based on the information you have provided. We review our professional recommendations with you to allow you to make the best informed decisions. We listen to your concerns and considerations, and revise our recommendations as appropriate.

STEP 5: Implementing the financial strategy recommendations

We work with you to agree upon how each recommendation should be carried out. Together, we may choose to have us carry out the recommendations for you or serve as a "coach", coordinating the process with you and other professionals such as attorneys or stockbrokers.

STEP 6: Monitoring the financial strategy recommendations

Together we will agree upon who, and how, we will monitor your progress towards your financial goals. We report to you periodically to review the financial situation and adjust any recommendations as needed. As our client, we will always keep you informed and knowledgeable when it comes to your financial strategy and situation.
