Step 1: Investment Consulting

The first step in the 5-Step Process is focused on understanding you, your risk profile, and your portfolio's construction. By understanding your starting point, we can begin to develop a plan that matches your unique financial goals and objectives.

When this step is complete, you'll have an understanding of the inner workings of your portfolio and a set of guidelines we'll use to optimize your wealth.

Included in this step:



  • Portfolio X-Ray

  • Investor Profile Constuction

  • Trading Costs
  • Portfolio Turnover Rate
  • Tax Costs
  • Cash Drag
