Thoughtful steps to achieving your vision

You’ll find that our process, like our advice, is straightforward and personalized to your needs. It starts with sitting down to discuss what’s most important to you, from your family to your goals in life. We’ll check in with you and meet with you at your convenience, keeping you in the know as the process unfolds and seeking updates as your needs change.

Understand

In this step, we focus on getting to know you and your expectations. We’ll use a variety of tools, including questionnaires and interviews, to build an understanding of your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and risk tolerance. We’ll also make you fully aware of our capabilities and assist you in understanding the scope of services we offer to help you meet your objectives.

Design

Next, we will analyze the information you’ve shared with us and design solutions intended to help you reach your objectives. This step may involve collaboration with other specialists or your existing professionals, such as your attorney or accountant. We present our recommendations to you, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps we need to take to implement your plan.

Implement

With your approval, we will execute your customized strategy using the extensive tools available to us through Raymond James. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services, and the completion of all necessary paperwork.

Manage

Once implemented, we will continuously monitor the progress of our recommendations relative to your defined objectives and suggest changes where needed. We will also help you address your reactions to significant personal changes or market shifts. Human behavior can be one of the biggest obstacles to the long-term success of a plan, so we will take care to help you act sensibly and avoid decisions based on excitement or fear.
