OUR 3 MEETING
PROCESS


We begin every new client conversation
with three meetings.

Assess

In our first meeting, we will get to know each other. You will meet our team and learn about our philosophy, services, and cost structure. We take this time to get to know you, discuss your financial situation and your priorities. Our approach to financial planning and investment management is highly individualized, and we will address all financial topics that are important to you.

Plan

A good financial plan incorporates all aspects of your life: from investments, to taxes, to cash flow and estate planning. In our second meeting, we will review with you a draft of your personal plan. Utilizing our robust planning software, we will simulate many scenarios and demonstrate how financial decisions can make meaningful impacts to your financial success. Together we will design a road map to begin your journey to financial well-being.

Implement

At the third meeting we will deliver specific investment recommendations tailored to your personal financial plan. We will explain fees, expenses and reasonable expectations for our recommendations. We make time at this meeting to ensure that all your concerns are addressed, and questions answered. If you decide to hire GA, we will establish your personal implementation, monitoring and review schedule.
