Our Steps

Consultation and Fit


The process starts with a confidential discussion about your financial situation and your concerns and objectives.  We will explain more about how we work, answer your questions and get to know one another better. This conversation will identify what is currently working for you and what you would like to change.  If there is a good fit between what you would like to achieve and the services I can provide as well as comfort level with each other then we will book a second appointment.  The first meeting is a "no obligation" appointment, but when the second appointment is booked it is on the understanding that we will be working together.


Identify Goals and Objectives


The second meeting focuses more on clarifying your goals and objectives. The right financial advice for you requires a clear sense of what you want to achieve with your current assets and future earnings.  We will spend time learning more about your goals, and objectives, reviewing your current holdings, cash flow and estate plans.  With this information we can start developing suitable financial solutions to best help you achieve your goals.




We will design specific financial strategies that address your key goals and objectives.  This may include some required actions on your part such as debt management and increased savings.  We will address risk management, tax efficient strategies and investment management.  Taken as a whole these actions and strategies will make effective use of your current investments and future savings.


Implementation and Review


At this stage we will put the finalized plan into action and follow up with regular face-to-face meetings.  We will work together as your circumstances evolve and investments change and grow.  Consistent communication is critical to maintaining your confidence and trust in your plan and the process we are following.  We communicate by phone and email and typically meet twice a year to stay current on your evolving needs the state of financial markets and your investments.
