Personal Financial Planning Our financial planning process provides ongoing, customized solutions in a complex and changing world. Every plan is designed for your unique objectives, priorities, and values. It is comprehensive and integrated, and rather than being a one-time snapshot, your plan will evolve with changes in your life and resources, helping you to make considered decisions as life progresses. We utilize a financial planning platform that integrates financial planning and wealth management. It supports our advisory process by providing a powerful engine capable of generating comprehensive financial planning analytics, calculating cash flow projections and modeling “what-if” scenarios. For our clients, it delivers an easy to use system to track and manage your balance sheet, investments and documents in one convenient and secure location. Consulting and planning are separate from our advisory services and require a separate financial planning agreement outlining the terms of services.
