Financial planning is the collaborative process of integrating all relevant elements of a family’s personal and financial circumstances to maximize the potential to meet their life goals. By establishing risk tolerances, time horizons, and goals, we build holistic plans that account for your unique personal and financial situations.
Determine Your Financial Goals
With individuals and families, this may begin with a retirement plan. The first step in building a financial plan is determining your financial goals. A "goal" for planning purposes is a clearly defined objective that has a 1) deadline, 2) a dollar amount, and 3) a measure of importance in your life. For example, a goal could be wanting to buy a $30,000 sports car in 5 years or paying for a child's college education.
With institutions, we examine the investment policy statement. By analyzing cash flow requirements, investment time horizon, risk tolerance, liquidity needs and tax status, we formulate a long term strategic asset allocation of stocks and bonds.
A goal is a dream with a deadline.
