Build Your Plan Comparing today's picture to how you want it to look tomorrow, then mapping out how to get there. Introduction We ask a lot of questions during our complimentary first meeting. We want to discover what's most important to you. Prior to coming in, you help us by completing the New Client Profile. The profile gives us clues about how to guide the conversation. Outlined by Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps, we discuss your goals and how to pursue them from right where you are. Recommendations If we can help, we explain the logistics of moving forward. The next step is to design a financial plan for you. This often happens by the end of our first meeting, but we can schedule more time as needed. Implementation Implementing a new plan means uprooting an old one. We assist with paperwork and navigate you through the transition. As LPL Financial Advisors, we offer a diverse group of non-proprietary securities, and we cater to your philosophy. If you prefer passive management, we help you create a buy-and-hold strategy. As your net worth expands, we strategically add on. If you prefer active management, we diversify among asset classes and sectors that suit you, and we rebalance as needed. We use technical analysis with the objective to optimize trading opportunities, without generating excess movement in your portfolio. We closely monitor holdings and react to activity that could impact performance. While all of that is great, it’s also important to realize that rebalancing a portfolio may cause investors to incur tax liabilities and/or transaction costs and does not assure a profit or protect against a loss. Monitoring We meet with you regularly to measure your progress—not just against the market but against your goals. We help you make revisions based on economic and lifestyle changes.
