Services We Provide You
Services we provide begin with financial planning, which is where we help you articulate your financial goals, dreams and aspirations. We start with your goals. Sounds simple, right? . . . just accumulate more money. Well, not so fast. Consider this real-life example about one of our married couple clients who have a family:
The couple has sufficient assets to live comfortably for the rest of their lives; but one of the assets is illiquid (this means it needs to be sold in order to be used).
The wife is adamant that the primary asset, a summer home, is not to be sold no under any circumstance. She will not sign a listing agreement. Humm . . . “Why?,” we ask. “Is this asset so important that you will not sell it to provide for your retirement security?” Her answer, “Because it is where our family gathers twice a year. It’s what keeps our family together!” As you can see, we understand that clients do not make decisions solely based on money! We worked with this couple to find a solution that was comfortable for them.
That’s why it’s imperative that you select an advisor who will listen carefully to you and clarify your unique wishes. That’s exactly what we do. Then, and only then, will we attach numbers to your wishes and develop strategies to help attain your goals.
Wealth Accumulation strategies begin with the development of an Investment Policy Statement or IPS. We want to understand you appetite for risk and the impact it can have on your financial future. You see, when times are good, your risk quotient (appetite) will be quite high; but when things are not so good for whatever reason, your risk quotient will be sufficiently lowered.
Because of the fact that we ask the right questions and carefully listen, we will be able to hear you express your concerns about risk thresholds and your desire for return. Based on that, we develop an IPS that specifies the types of investments and investment protection you desire. Your SWA Certified Personal Financial Advisor develops and monitors your portfolios that are custom designed to accomplish your investment goals and objectives.
Another wealth accumulation related issue has to do with Risk Management. This is another phrase for ‘asset and estate protection’ or ‘insurance.’ It’s amazing that people generally have a natural tendency to want to insure their homes, cars and health: but not their income or money. Why is that? We want for you what we would want for our own families. For example, we would want to help ensure that your retirement is provided for in a contract with an insurance company that would guarantee you, and/or your spouse income at retirement for the rest of your lives.
We can also help you navigate the issue of Life Insurance. How much do you have? How much do you really need? We can perform a number of calculations that will help you understand the suggested amounts and then help you make a qualified decision.
