Personalized planning

Personalized planning

Our team’s job is to enable you to make informed financial decisions using the full complement of resources at our disposal. To accomplish this, we use a step-by-step process that draws on our experience and conservative advisory approach, as well as the industry-leading strength and support of Raymond James.

This process is essential, not only because it provides a framework for making decisions collaboratively -- it also provides our team with a chance to get to know you. This is very important because it helps us understand your goals and aspirations, which, in turn, will help guide us in the investments we recommend.


Our team will work closely with you in to understand your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and desired level of risk. You’ll also be made fully aware of their capabilities and be provided educational support to assist you in understanding the scope of services offered at our firm to help you meet your objectives.


Our team will analyze the information you shared and design solutions to help you pursue your objectives. This step may involve collaboration with your other planning professionals such as your CPA and attorney. Recommendations will be presented to you, your questions will be answered, alternatives considered, and our team will go over the steps necessary to implement your plan.


Our team will put your personalized plan into action. This involves the selection of specific account types, investment managers, investment products and optional services; we then complete the necessary paperwork in a coordinated approach.


Once implemented, our team will continually monitor the progress of our recommendations relative to your defined objectives and suggest changes where needed. In this ongoing part of our relationship, your involvement is key. This means telling us about any significant changes in your life. Our team will help accomplish this by meeting with you periodically to review your portfolio’s allocation and performance, checking up on your current circumstances and goals, and providing ongoing reporting of your account activity.

Understanding a client’s goals – personal, professional and financial – deeply affects financial and investment recommendations.
