Our process

Individual investments and the markets fluctuate over time. As your advisors, it is our job to enable you to make informed financial decisions using the full complement of resources at our disposal. To help you manage and preserve the rewards of your success, we employ a process that draws both on our experience and conservative advisory approach, as well as the industry-leading strength and support of Raymond James.

This process provides a framework for making decisions collaboratively – applying not only our insight and recommendations, but those of our clients and their outside advisors as well – and monitoring the outcome of those decisions over time.

Understand
We will use a variety of tools including questionnaires and interviews to understand your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and desired level of risk. In this step, we will make you fully aware of our capabilities and provide educational support to assist you in understanding the scope of services we offer to help you meet your objectives.
Design
We will analyze the information you share with us and design strategies intended to help you reach your objectives. This step may involve collaboration with your other planning professionals such as your CPA and attorney. We will present our recommendations to you, answer your questions, consider alternatives and outline the steps necessary to implement your plan.
Implement
Your personalized plan will be implemented using the extensive tools available to us through Raymond James. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment products and optional services; we will also help you complete the necessary paperwork in a coordinated approach.
Manage
Once your plan is implemented, we will monitor the progress of our recommendations relative to your defined objectives and suggest changes where needed. A key to this step is your involvement in the process by telling us of any significant changes in your life. We’ll help by providing ongoing reporting of your account activity, meeting periodically to review your portfolio’s allocation and performance, and checking up on your current circumstances and goals.
