    INVESTMENT CONSULTING PROCESS

    Step 1:   Understanding you and your expectations

    One of the keys to investment success is to clearly define your objectives, your financial needs and your tolerance for risk. 

    Step 2:   Developing a customized investment strategy and profile

    Using information gathered on your personal preferences, we would design an optimal combination of diversified investments to help you achieve your goals. 

    Step 3:   Analyzing and selecting appropriate investment alternatives

    Because of my in-depth understanding of your portfolio needs, we will evaluate which investment vehicles are best suited to guide your portfolio. 

    Step 4:   Bringing the plan together

    We will present you with a range of specific investment options consistent with your personalized asset allocation that seek to help you achieve your financial objectives.

    Step 5:   Tracking your progress

    A key to a prudent financial plan is to make sure that the client stays on track after the recommendations have been put into motion.  I will closely monitor the performance of your portfolio.  You and I will meet on a regular basis to discuss the progress of your investments and determine if any adjustments are needed.
