What to Expect
The first step is simply to meet and get acquainted. We will discuss your risk tolerance, investment experience, beneficiaries, goals, taxes, expectations and anything else that you feel is important. This is the time for you to talk and the advisor to listen, and you are encouraged to ask as many questions as you like. After the initial meeting, you will be informed as to how we can help you and what you can expect going forward. Should you decide to proceed with the recommendations, you will receive a written Investment Policy Statement, a signed contract and the account(s) can be opened.
After the accounts have been funded and investments have been chosen, we will meet or talk on the phone as necessary to ensure that your expectations are being met. Some clients like to meet several times a year to go over the accounts and some simply prefer a phone call or e-mail from time to time. How often we meet and what we discuss it tailored to each client individually. Some clients like to keep things on a “business only” level and some have become very good friends. It is an honor to be able to help you and everything possible will be done to maintain your trust and confidence.
