With more than 26 years of experience in financial planning and investment management, I have had the privilege of guiding generations of clients through the complexities that accompany wealth. Investing is only a means to an end. Keeping you and your financial future on a steady course means discovering what goals and obstacles you face to achieve what you want to accomplish.
As your life and your needs as an investor evolve, so will your vision for the future. Financial planning, therefore, is not about reaching a destination, but establishing a plan to structure the journey. The process for evaluating financial position is set and the markets will always have their fluctuations and uncertainties. Your financial strategies must be built on what’s important to you, what resources are available and what threats or life transitions could impact all that. Then I can help you build investment, wealth preservation and income strategies that are integrated into your life.
My colleagues and I see building a financial strategy like building a house. Our role is like an architect’s. We endeavor to design for beauty, but also to ensure durability and flexibility, assembling experts when and as needed. These experts may include your attorney, accountant or other trusted advisors. We can also bring quality expertise from Raymond James in a huge variety of specialty areas like trusts, business continuity or philanthropy.
We call our approach the PEAK Process. It embraces planning for life so that your money is there as needed. We address expectations by keeping you informed and keeping the plan relevant to your goals, needs and resources. Together, you and I accept, adapt and adjust your plan as your life requires. Finally, we help you keep on course for the long term. Planning. Expectations, Accept and Adapt. Keep. Just as your life is unique, your plan will also be unique.
