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 strategy for your present needs and a long-term strategy for your financial future.
No two clients are the same. Each person has differing life circumstances and we are committed to knowing your individual Wealth Management Issues. This individualized approach allows us to help you anticipate necessary priority changes and enables us to proactively provide alternatives, ideas and recommendations for each evolving Wealth Management Issue.
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 they may help you define your personal and financial goals, understand your time frame for results, and determine your comfort and risk level.
Once discovery and data gathering are complete, the results are reviewed and a Financial Analysis Plan is designed to meet your individual goals and objectives. 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 you for review and approval. These recommendations address your individual goals and objectives. Extra care is taken to be sure you thoroughly understand the recommendations and alternatives so you 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 you meet your financial and life goals. During this step of the process, implementation of the Plan finalized during the Presentation is thoroughly discussed.
The results of the implemented Wealth Management Plan are continually assessed to ensure your objectives are being met. Dexter and Tammy are always available to update a Wealth Management Plan to suit your changing personal needs. A personal communication plan is tailored for each client which includes a scheduled review meeting, ongoing education and client events. A high level of access and communication is a Dexter Ward & Associates service mark.
