Wealth Management Process

We invest in YOU - who you are and the goals you have.

Wealth Management is a process - not a product or a one-time event.  The Wealth Management Process provides a long-term strategy for your financial future.

There are 8 Key Wealth Management Issues that clients are likely to face at some point.  When these issues will become priorities is not the same for every client, so it is incumbent upon a Wealth Management Advisor to take a disciplined and structured approach to helping a client manage these issues.

The Wealth Management Process includes the following phases:

Discovery and Data Gathering

At the beginning of the process, it is important to sit down and discuss each client's unique values, priorities and goals.  Dexter and Tammy work with their clients to complete a detailed information gathering questionnaire so that they may help you define your personal and financial goals, understand your timeframe for resuts, and your comfort and risk level.


Once the discovery and data gathering are complete, the results are reviewed and a Financial Analysis Plan is designed to meet the individual client's goals and objectitves.  This step of the process includes such areas as analyzing assets, liabilities, cash flow, risk management, current investments and strategies related to tax issues.


All recommendations are presented to the client for review and approval.  These recommendations address each client's individual gals and objectives.  Extra care is taken to be sure that each client thoroughly understands the recommendations and alternatives so they can make informed decisions.


Implementation is key to what makes the Wealth Management Process work.  At this point, a pro-active approach is taken to help clients meet their financial and life goals.  During this step of the process, implementation of the Plan finalized during the Presentation is thoroughly discussed.

Ongoing Communication

The results of the implemented Wealth Management Plan are continually assessed to ensure each client's objectives are being met and Dexter and Tammy are always available to update a Wealth Management Plan to suit a client's changing personal needs.  A personal communication plan is tailored for each client that includes a schedule of review meeting, ongoing education and client events.  A high level of access and communication is a Dexter Ward & Associates service mark.
