Step 3: Investment PlanIn Step 3, we will implement an investment plan based on several market factors. Investment plans must be flexible enough to be strategically revised with market fluctuations. Read more about our investment planning.
Step 4: Review ProcessWealth management is an ongoing process and should recognize changes in the economic environment, legislative changes, or changes in family dynamics, which can affect financial goals. Consequently, we meet with our clients on an agreed upon schedule either quarterly, semi-annually or annually to review their retirement, estate and investment plans.
Quarterly/Semi-annual/Annual meetings include:
- Review progress towards retirement goals (income needs, performance, portfolio evaluation, income sources, timeline, etc.)
- Estate plan review (beneficiary designations, gifting schedule, asset ownership, legislative changes, etc.)
- Investment review
- Portfolio performance
- Portfolio re-balancing
- Re-assess investment strategy
- Manager changes
- Style drift
