Link a Strategy to Your Wealth - Our Approach
Before we begin to give purpose and vision to your wealth strategy, it is essential for us to know your goals and the assets that you bring to the experience. We have you fill out a Wealth Planning Worksheet so that we can get a good picture of the hard work you have accomplished already. We then get to know you, your goals, and your desires. Together, we will create an action plan to provide a confident financial future for you and your family. At that point, you become part of our family. We will develop a customized, personal Strategy and incorporate different estate planning tools as needed. We will then address the 13 Wealth Management Principles we have identified as being essential to a complete Wealth Management Strategy. Tim will work with our team to develop the sound strategy that your wealth deserves.
