Working with a new advisor can feel overwhelming. We believe clients deserve a long-term advisory relationship based on integrity and trust, which fosters open communication, encourages candid advice, and promotes innovative strategies. Here’s the process we follow to achieve this.
Step 1: Discovery
Our complimentary discovery meeting centers on learning about your financial needs and goals, concerns, challenges, and what makes you feel fulfilled. We set aside time to provide you an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how we can help.
Step 2: Wealth Profile
To identify all strategies available to you, we need to understand all of your financial resources. At this juncture, you complete the Halpern Financial Wealth Profile which provides our team an overview of your entire financial picture. It is designed to help you communicate your financial goals to us.
Step 3: Our Recommendations
After gathering your information, we will develop and present a comprehensive Review and Recommendation Report. This Report provides a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of your current financial situation and offers strategies to help you reach your financial goals and objectives.
Step 4: Engagement and Establishment
We will then begin establishing accounts and initiating the transfer process. During the establishment and initiation process, we keep you informed of progress through proactive communication, making it a simplified and seamless experience.
Step 5: Portfolio Development
We design a portfolio which is customized to your financial situation. The details are presented to you in a Portfolio Development Report which outlines your custom target portfolio allocation based on your individual objectives, risk propensity, and current investment holdings. This Report will also include specific steps to reach your target allocation through prudent and tax-efficient account setup, transfer, and trading.
Step 6: Ongoing Wealth Management
By its definition, wealth management is an ever-changing process and the approach needs to be flexible to adapt to life events, changes in the markets and economy, as well as new regulatory legislation. In addition to regular portfolio re-balancing and performance reviews, we believe it is essential to regularly assess progress towards your goals and objectives.
