Investment management without ongoing financial planning.
Step One: Onboarding and Kick-Off
In order to help you align your portfolio with your goals, we need to get to know you! Once we’ve fully onboarded you as a client, we’ll hold our first Discovery Meeting. During this time, our only goal is to help understand more about who you are. We want to know what you value, what you want to achieve, and how we can help you get there.
Step Two: Building a Strategy
We will help to build an investing strategy that addresses both your short- and long-term goals. This plan will take into account your goals, values, risk tolerance, and timeline.
Step Three: Monitoring and Adjustments
Once your plan has been created, we’ll be able to help you monitor your finances in an ongoing capacity. As your life changes, your strategy will adjust to ensure that your best interest is always at the core of the investing decisions you make. During our engagement, we meet one to two times per year.

Keep It Simple
Investing shouldn't be complicated.
We believe most people will be successful at investing if they get these things right:
- Choosing how much to save
- Deciding the optimal types of accounts to save in
- Creating a portfolio with a mix of stocks (growth) and bonds (safety) that meets your risk preferences
- Keep costs low
- Try to be tax-efficient
- Invest for the long-term (don't try to time the market)
Invest to meet your goals. Not to beat the market.
Does your investment portfolio reflect your financial goals? We consider your goals first and then tailor an investment strategy to fit those needs. It's a fluid plan designed to adjust throughout the seasons of life.
We offer expertise in portfolio management. However, we believe you will find more value in our ability to clearly communicate complex strategies in a relatable manner.
At the core of our strategy is our Investment Policy Statement that details your goals and objectives. We will use this to design and implement a low-cost, diversified portfolio in a tax-efficient manner.
HOW WE HELP
Together we decide the strategy using the keys above. We will then take that framework and implement it for you.
And then we help with the final, not so simple part. Minimizing emotions.
The steps for successful investing sound great on paper. Then the market fluctuates, and our emotions get the best of it. That is where we deliver value. We will be your accountability partner to keep the emotions in check, understand historical market cycles, and explain it in terms you can understand.
