My 360º Process
I specialize in working with legal and healthcare professionals; take a look below at my 360º process to see how I can bring value in how you see your financial circumstances. The 360 Degree Snapshot is comprised of these five essential components. During the process of constructing a financial plan, each different component must be properly addressed. My goal is to ensure that every client takes full advantage of all their financial planning opportunities.
I believe that it is imperative to take the time necessary to learn who my client is and what is important to them. I also believe that it is essential that I stay abreast of the many changes in the financial world so as to be totally prepared to meet my clients’ goals.
Cash Flow Management
Cash flow is the first area of every financial plan that needs to be carefully examined. Maintaining a positive cash flow is the key to creating a solid foundation to build on when striving to meet your financial goals.
Once cash flow is being properly managed, protecting yourself is the next step in a financial plan. Here I look at ensuring that you are secure regardless of any unforeseen events occurring in your life.
The third step towards financial independence is making sure that you are not paying more than your fair share of taxes. This can be determined through an analysis of income sources and all available opportunities.
After having created a solid foundation for your financial well-being, the next step is investment planning. Through asset allocation and risk tolerance models I assist you in reaching your short and long-term investment goals.
The last area to address in your financial plan is the Estate Plan. Here we ensure that your Will and Powers of Attorney are current. We also assess whether or not your assets will flow tax effectively to the beneficiaries of your estate. It is important to note that you are never too young to do Estate Planning.
