Continuous Service offers ongoing monitoring and implementation of your complete financial situation.
This service is similar to running a marathon—just because you have trained for and completed one doesn’t mean that you’ll be in the best shape of your life forever. A plan is no different. Just as life changes, so does your financial situation. As your financial situation changes and becomes more complex, it’s harder to account for all of the factors necessary to make good decisions.
Our Continuous Service focuses on six cornerstones:
Disciplined Investment Management Service Our ongoing process that takes an active, opportunistic approach to managing your portfolio. With regular attention, we are able to help you take advantage of tax efficiencies and cost savings, while utilizing a comprehensive and coordinate strategy.
Financial Plan Updates Life can be full of questions, and sometimes your plan needs to adapt quickly. Your plan will be updated annually and through the year as needed when new questions—and decisions—arise.
Estate Review Your last wishes may change, just as your portfolio and its contents may shift with the market. Our annual review helps ensure that your last wishes are aligned with beneficiary designations and existing legal documents. We also help with realigning where necessary to best meet your intentions.
Cash Flow Summary Finding the time to capture and track your financial progress against your plan targets can be hard and sometimes, overwhelming. We’re here to provide feedback throughout the year on how you are doing compared to your plan, for both spending and savings goals. This portion of our service utilizes Balance Bookkeeping, an online account aggregation tool.
Tax Planning Opportunities The time to save money on taxes is during the year and not when you file your tax return. Therefore, throughout the year we take an active approach in identifying and taking action on available opportunities to you. There are often ways to help you save you money, both now and in the future.
Tax Return Review Taxes are complicated; we (including professionals) may all overlook an item or two on occasion. Our tax return review process may identify overlooked tax saving efficiencies for amending your return and/or for future planning. Our in-house returns are reviewed and held to the same standards as those self- or professionally filed returns.
Your financial advisor will discuss the best implementation of these cornerstones for your unique situation. Contact us today to see if our Continuous Service is a good fit for you.
