Among the benefits of having literally thousands of client interactions over the years is this…we have seen almost everything! From routine missteps to huge lifestyle altering lapses, we have witnessed these many times. Our purpose does not require perfect people. Clients come here “as they are”, with wide ranging histories that usually include numerous financial mistakes.
The physical setup of our conference room, with the sofa and chairs surrounded by pieces of art, is purposefully designed to enhance communication. We want clients to feel comfortable talking to us, with full confidence that their issues and experiences will be heard and acknowledged. Our office is a place where we focus on helping clients achieve good outcomes by providing “no-judgement” advice.
It can be difficult for some investors to realize that success in making money in a business or profession has almost no bearing on the ability to manage money. A critical first step towards achieving good outcomes is trusting us to guide you and to capitalize on our deep experience.
While we don’t judge, we do practice unbridled honesty. You can fully expect a clear and truthful assessment from us, regardless of where you are along the wealth continuum. Since our overarching aim is to help clients achieve good outcomes and avoid bad, it serves no purpose to downplay or ignore lurking problems.
The adage “time cures all ills” certainly applies to our work. If clients come here years in advance of retirement, we have time to repair some of the previous financial and investment problems. Our goal is to encourage clients to get started in their peak earnings years instead of waiting until later when time becomes an enemy, not an ally.
To achieve priorities that are meaningful to you, it is necessary to let go of the past. One of our core beliefs is that we have faith in the future. There are no future facts, just future possibilities. Ready for a real conversation?
