Three-Year Meeting Schedule

Regular progress meetings give us an opportunity to review any new developments in your personal or financial situation. If these changes mean that we need to make adjustments to your wealth management plan, we’ll do so. At each regular progress meeting, we’ll typically concentrate on one area of your finances.

Over three years, this process should ensure that every aspect of your financial life is working effectively and efficiently. We continue to thoroughly revisit this planning schedule as long as we are working together.

Investment Principles

While each client’s portfolio and goals are different and require different strategies, there are fundamental, evidenced-based principles that inform our overall wealth management perspective. Adhering to these principles ensures that our management is objective, not based on emotions, and that our clients’ probability of success is maximized.

Markets are highly efficient.

Security prices reflect the most current information available.

Risk and return are related.

Exposure to meaningful risk factors determines expected return.

Diversification is essential.

Diversification reduces uncertainty and lowers the risk of having “all your eggs in one basket."

Structure determines performance.

Asset allocation along size, value, and market exposure dimensions primarily determine the results of a broadly diversified portfolio.

Costs and taxes matter.

A fundamental truth of business: every expense reduces net return.

Investing can be more.

Environmental, social, and corporate governance-minded investing can align goals, finances, and values.
