Discover: We conduct an in-depth discovery process through interviews, questionnaires, assessments, and information gathering to fully understand and document your current wealth scenario. Because we address the human aspects of wealth management, we gather information about your family, employees, faith, etc, in addition to the typical financial data. We interact with you and anyone else you feel should contribute to the process.
Dream: We walk with you through a process of considering your future vision and goals for each aspect of your stewardship journey – your wealth, business, lifestyle, and philanthropy. We seek to understand your hopes and dreams for your own lives, your loved ones and important charities. These visions and goals provide the basis through which we analyze your information and provide observations and recommendations.
Design: Equipped with all your goals and information, we design actionable plans that serve to optimize your family wealth objectives while minimizing the risk to you and your family. Our team of professionals will develop plans, processes and structures to protect and manage your wealth according to your objectives, and sustain its value through successive generations.
Deliver: We partner with you and your family to deliver the plans we’ve made. We’ll work with you and your professionals to ensure all legal, financial and organizational aspects are successfully implemented. Once executed, we’ll proactively monitor and maintain your plans on an ongoing basis and respond to new information.
