Investor Access

Informed decisions
from a detailed process

Individual investments and the markets fluctuate over time. As your trusted financial 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 use 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 you and your other professional advisors as well – and monitoring the outcome of those decisions over time.


Learning about your personal goals, current financial situation, investment experience and desired level of risk is an important first step in planning for your retirement, and we will use a variety of tools including questionnaires and interviews to do so. You will also learn about our capabilities and receive educational support to help you understand the scope of services we offer to help you meet your retirement objectives.


Our team will analyze the information you share with us and design solutions intended to help you pursue 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.


In this step, we implement your personalized plan 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 complete the necessary paperwork in a coordinated approach.


Once implemented, we will review 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 and communication of any significant changes in your life. We accomplish this 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.
