Financial Planning Services


FINANCIAL PLANNING:  We will design a 6 step comprehensive financial plan (found below) that evaluates your current financial situation by analyzing your income and expenditures to identify how you will pay the bills each month, save for retirement, and pursue your financial goals.

  1. Gather Important Information: Gather all of your financial information, and it will allow us to ascertain both your short-term and long-term goals and needs. Careful and thorough data collection will ensure a solid foundation of the overall financial plan.
  2. Establish Goals and Objectives: In this step of the process, we will work together to determine your goals for the future and their priority. We will then design various strategies to help you achieve your goals.
  3. Evaluate Current Situation: We will evaluate your current financial situation to identify the strengths and shortfalls of your existing financial condition. This will help us to determine the key area of focus as well as identify the factors that may be working counter to your goal and objectives.
  4. Develop Comprehensive Plan: The next step of the process is to design a comprehensive financial plan based on your stated goals and objectives. Depending on your specific needs, plans may include estate, retirement education, charitable, business succession, and other customized solutions.
  5. Implement Plan: You will receive a copy of the completed plan, which outlines your financial picture. This plan is designed to offer solutions for your needs as well as provide detailed recommendations that are tailored to help you to achieve your goals. With your approval, we will execute the recommended strategies. In many cases, this is a step-by-step process. We will identify the critical areas first and implement the other pieces of the plan over time.
  6. Periodic Ongoing Review: One of the most important elements of the process is follow-up and periodic reviews. The continuous updating of information allows us to keep a record of changes in your short-term and long-term goals as well as changes to your financial situation.

INSURANCE: We help you identify any risks which could tremendously impair your financial situation. While it’s important to focus on what may go right with your situation, it’s also crucial to consider how you may be negatively impacted without protections in place. Part of that process is to design a life-long plan which may include life insurance, long-term care insurance or disability insurance.

Employee Benefits and Risk Management: Finding the right team to succeed company founders and maximizing value for a life of work requires forethought and a deep exploration of all the options. We assist small businesses or professional service companies on risk management options and manage requests for proposals for life and disability insurance plans. Learn More
