Practical, effective solutions for busy professionals
Our specialty is building tailored financial plans. Our culture is built on strong relationships.
When you’re building your future, time is precious. As a successful professional, and possibly a parent, you want a practical solution that is easy to implement in order to achieve your goals. The financial advisors at The Millstone Evans Group of Raymond James will create a personalized financial and investment plan that will save you time now and in the years ahead.
We start with an initial conversation about your current situation, questions, challenges and interests.
The second step is using a tool called Financial DNA. It begins with a questionnaire that will take you 30 minutes or less to complete, after which we will schedule a one-hour meeting to discuss the results. Financial DNA is a bit like a DISC or Myers-Briggs test – but through a financial lens. It allows us to quickly identify important issues to discuss and accelerates our ability to create a plan and solutions that are most appropriate for you. The tool works well with single people or married couples. Spouses complete separate questionnaires.
Typically, the next step is to create your financial plan, but sometimes we proceed directly to the investment plan. In either case, the Financial DNA tool informs the solutions we suggest.
When we agree that your financial plan makes sense, the process will proceed in stages and will generally be completed in four to six weeks. We will ask you to provide specific information to us, and for that reason, this is the stage that requires more of your time than any other. However, it is the only time in the process that will take a significant time commitment from you. We estimate one to two hours of your time will be sufficient. Once we receive the information we need, we can complete your plan with only occasional questions along the way.
Your financial planning meeting can be done via GoToMeeting or in person. Generally, this meeting lasts about an hour to 90 minutes. Finally, the investment plan meeting generally takes an hour as well.
The timetable for review meetings is according to your preference.
Our goal: Every conversation we have addresses your needs and questions in an efficient, productive manner that makes your life easier.
Our service team of highly skilled professionals is highly responsive and a pleasure to work with.
Note: We provide you with tools to teach your children ages 3 to 18 about money and offer financial planning sessions with your kids when they graduate high school and college.
