We believe there are four critical steps to creating and implementing a customized, comprehensive wealth management strategy. We’ll adhere to these steps as we help you implement strategies with goals (or objectives) for accumulating, protecting and transferring your wealth. Step 1: Define Your Investment Goals and Objectives The first step in the investment process is to clearly define your investment goals, time horizon, risk tolerance and preferences. This basic information provides a solid foundation for your portfolio and serves as a reference guide for our ongoing discussions and reviews. Step 2: Determine Your Investment Strategy After your goals and objectives have been determined, the next step is to create a customized investment strategy. We’ll apply the concepts of asset allocation and diversification as we identify and recommend the most appropriate investment strategy—all the while, focusing on your unique financial position. Step 3: Build Your Portfolio Now we’ll begin building a portfolio of investment vehicles to pursue your specific needs. We’ll determine which types of assets you should own and how they should be allocated. We’ll research and recommend the types of traditional and alternative investments suited to meet your objectives. Step 4: Manage and Monitor Your Portfolio Once your assets are invested, the process of monitoring and managing your portfolio begins. We will continue to review and evaluate your investment strategy to ensure it remains aligned with your goals. We’ll provide investment education and guidance through regular meetings and diversifications. As your needs change, we will re-evaluate your investment strategy and discuss alternatives.No strategy assures success or protects against loss.Asset allocation and diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and should be considered as an investment for the risk capital portion of the investor’s portfolio. The strategies employed in the management of alternative investments may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
